thanks man, i thought of fuel pump and the relay, gas is good, its a timing chain not a belt, so coil, crank position sensor. ok a few things to check thanks!

yep its fuel pump....used one on its way and sister might actually tackle it herself before Dad gets home from California.

oh i had this problem before!! i removed the fuse box cover to change a light fuse, then when i put the cover back, i accidently moved a fuse out of its place, i forgot which one, but take a look at the fuse box, hopefully that should do it!!
