Default Engine Turns Over, But won`t start

Hey guys, I just got a 2001 Mazda B3000 V6 pick-up, it ran great for a while, but i drove it home from work with no problems at all, but later that day, it won`t start. It turns over and sounds like it really wants too, but just can`t. The battery is good, and I just had new spark plugs and spark plug wires put in, and im thinking it might be the fuel pump, but before I started tearing it apart I thought I would ask for some input on what it could be. Also when I pushed it into my garage, I leaked some power steering fluid, is that normal, or should I be worried?

turn your key on and listen at the gas cap and see if you can hear the pump running

whoa there hold on.... my did same thing and i went thru hell. replace ur fuel pump relay first or just swap em to check it is on the fuse box on drivers side by the firewall if you swap one to it and it doesnt work then take off your bed and get a multimeter and see wen u turn the ignition on if it reads 12v or more on the wires then its fuel pump but if it reads like 8v or less than its relay switch.

also make sure the cmp sensor and cam synchronizer are good as long as the little magnet is there and the synchro has the u shaped piece then thats good. but i would try relay first if not then clean IAC valve. believe me you do not wanna go thru the trouble i had to go thru lol
