If you got gas and spark, the switches/sensors are good. Try with some starting fluid, if it starts and shuts down, it's the fuel pump. Quick write = quick right? Did you jump on the brakes? When you turn the key, does the engine sound funny (different from before), does the exhaust smoke (well..not smoke but you understand) smell like a lean/strange smell??
