Hopefully it's not a timing belt that broke, I'm going to assume that it's good. Spray a little starting fluid down the I take and crank it over, if it fires and runs even briefly you have a fuel delivery problem, it maybe no injector power or pulse, or low fuel pressure, just cause the pump runs doesn't mean it's working right. If it doesn't fire off then you have a no spark condition at the plugs, bad cap, rotor even wires can cause this.

Sry I didn't get back to you sooner, you were right I disconnected gas line to fuel rail and got nothing, fuel pump was faulty, all fixed


Great. glad to hear it wasn't something more serious. Thanks for the points.
