Have you checked to see what actual fuel pressure is?Also have you checked for spark and codes in the computer?Most likely the fuel pump probably failed from being hot and getting hit by the cold fuel when filling the tank.

U need to check that the coils are getting power. They may need replacing. U need to find out why you have no spark before worrying fuel pressure.

If your loosing spark and fuel at the exact same time thats scary. So you for sure have no fuel pressure?They rent the fuel pressure gauges for free at auto zone and its easy to check. Also you have no spark for sure on any cylinders?You could have a bad crank shaft position sensor. Do you have any codes in the computer?Have you checked for any codes yet?
