Battery is good, tried jump starting it and it didn't work.

when trying to start it sounds like it's about to start but won't.

i tried putting a little gas in it just in case the gas gauge was broke and that didn't help either.

im all out of ideas. It stopped working while I was driving and it just died and wouldn't go.

thanks for reading and any advice will be appreciated.

Get a helper disconnect a sparkplug wire or 2 and ground it to the engine at least 3/16 away from ground -have helper crank engine over-do you have a snapping blue spark?

No snapping blue spark continue to troubleshoot the ignition system-power input to the coil/coil packs, coil's resistances, distributor pick-up coil, ignition control module, cam and crank sensors and computer Note: If it doesn't apply disregard it.
