Default 96 2.3 won't run

I have a 96 2.3 5 speed. Was driving down road and just died. First thought timing belt but it was good. Went ahead and replaced it because it was old. Checked fire and I have none at the plugs and I have no fuel pressure. Has the pcm went bad for both to have quit working or is there anything else that could cause this.

Fuse and relay are good. Hate to buy a pcm and it be something else but looks like it will be a educated guess.

Does your truck have the fuel shut off under the passenger side dashboard?

Also, do you have a distributor or distribution blocks? If a distributor, your coil could be bad. If blocks, they could be bad.

This is what your looking for.


No fire and no fuel pressure? Sounds electrical.
