Car started nice then quit. Checked fuel pump, spark plugs, checked relays, new starter. Looks like it is getting spark then does not. I have been trying to figure this out for a week. Please help me.

Check the crankshaft sensor and its wiring. Jack it up, pull the passenger tire and the covers and you will see the sensor. The wires sometimes get loose and get chewed by the timing belt. Or the sensor itself fails. Another problem area is the camshaft position sensor. Those are part of the distributor. Those usually give warning of failure, the crank sensors usually do not.
