1990 Ford Ranger 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual

I have a 1990 ford ranger that suddenly died yesterday. The starter has recently been replaced along with the solenoid. I was driving normally and felt a lurch then the engine stopped. The starter will turn over but the engine never fires up. We thought perhaps the fuel pump went out.
Do you
have the same problem?
Yes

Have you checked for spark and fuel to the engine? Here are the how to's for checking:

Check them and let me know what you find. If you need a pressure gauge, most parts stores will lend or rent them to you.
