Default 95 Ranger won't start.

I was driving up a hill and the engine died, and now won't start, it is getting spark, fuel, air and the starter rolls the engine over but it won't start. I dont know what do i try now?

Are you REALLY SURE it's getting fuel? Can you hear the fuel pump kick on? It sounds like the fuel pump switch under the dash got tripped. The truck thinks it was involved in a crash, and the switch did its job of shutting off the fuel flow..

Just a thought...

I checked the fuel pump switch first, then the check valve on the fuel line, and i used a screwdriver to check for spark from the sparkplug wires.

I once had a weak coil on my 89 that would spark a plug not installed, but under compression the plug wouldn't fire. It even had a nice fat spark to it too..

You're sure you have plenty of fuel in the tank and the fuel pump does kick on with every turn of the key?

It won't even spit/sputter and try to start?
