Question '00 Ranger 2.5 4cyl stall wont start

On my way home from work the engine just DIED. Now it wont start...it'll spin over and catch for a sec or two but then stall out. It's like its not getting gas or not hitting on all cylinders...it'll sputter for a second then die. ANY idea's what this could be...I really have no clue where to begin...fuel pump, relay...bad coil...etc..HELP!?!

Sounds like a fuel problem, check your fuel filter and fuel pump.

fuel pressure test, check for fire, inspect timing belt

I just went and tried to start it again after it's sat a couple hours and cooled down. I turned the key to RUN waited 10 seconds for pressure to build, it fired up and purred normal for like 3 seconds then she died. I did this twice...same results so I walked away.

One thing I noticed is the cap for the power steering keeps popping loose and there's fluid all over the place on that one side I wonder if that did something to it, cuz some of the wiring looks pretty drenched.

thanks guys.
