Problem is jimmy ran fine then everything shut down.
Well I have had the fuel tank replaced along with the fuel pump.(Had it checked it was blown) had the exhaust replaced (due to 4x4ing) I also replaced the spark plugs(they were bad), and wires along with the rotor and cap. Then it still won't start the fuel was tested for presure and there is lots of fuel to the engine(you can hear the new pumpkick in). Lots of spark! I then changed the ingition modual still nothing. I have no ideas can someone please help me to try to solve this.

Start with the basics, and work your way up, Last tune up was? Wires plugs ALL filters? If all that is ok, check for a stuck EGR, then test fuel pump pressure, If it won't restart, determine what's missing, the engine needs three things to run, Spark at all plugs, gas to all cylinders, and compression in all cylinders, tho an engine may run lacking one in one cylinder, it won't run very well!

Last tune up was done 5-6 days ago.
If you put gas into the carb it runs awesome until it burns up then it just turns over. Everytime I put it on the computer it is $80.00 it has been 3 x last diagnostic was to change the ign modual
egr the guy who had it on the computer did not think that was the problem filters are new
lots of spark gas and I assume compresson is fine cause it runs great if you manualy give it gas

If it runs when gas is introduced to intake, the fuel pump or pump reley is no good. Since the pump was changed test the wires to the pump, and fuse. Do you hear the pump run for 2 seconds when the key is turned to on? Take the gas cap off and listen at the tank.
