Hi gman19, Welcome to 2carpros and TY for the donation

Now it turns over but still wont start. It's getting gas ! Any idea what to check next!

Do below to determine if its a fuel or spark related issue

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? If so-you have a fuel related problem, check the fuel pressure to rule out the fuel filter/fuel pump/pressure regulator and listen to the injector/s are they pulsing or hook up a noid light. 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.

Sir, we need to verify the exact fuel pressure in the system with a gauge could be coming on but is it producing the correct fuel pressure

Its a chain driven kind of hard to believe it would jumped time like that-double check fuel pressure
