My vehicle won't start, I've checked the Battery, Alternator, fuel pump, and also the fuses. I'm not sure why it won't start. The engine would turn and it sounds as if no fuel is being delivered. It has over a quarter of a tank of gas. I haven't checked the starter and I was told that the timing chain may be broken. How could I go about figuring this out?

You could pull a bunch of covers to see if the timing marks are lining up, or if the cam is moving at all. If not, it would be the timing. But the fuel pump comes to mind on this one. Do me a favor. Open the gas cap, have a buddy put his ear on it as you turn the key to the on position. Does it make a sound now that you turned the key just to on?
