01 cavalier died and won't start. It's getting fire and is turning over just fine. How do I know if it's not a timing problem. Checked fuses and relays and everything is good. How loud should the fuel pump be? Heard a pop and then it died and it will not start. Thank you for your help.

Thanks for the quick response. I do have spark and am not sure how to check for fuel pressure. I am limited with the amount of tools I have to work with. Do I check the fuel line on top or by the tank.

Theres a valve with threads on it going up to the fuel rail thats where you check the fuel pressure. You can rent a fuel pressure gauge at auto zone Do you have some carb spray?
