1991 Toyota Celica Automatic

My car was very low on gas, but I made it to my friend's apartment and while I was waiting my car just turned off (kinda slowly). It wouldn't turn back on, but it turns over. I got a gallon of gas and it still won't start. Any suggestions? (Ps. I just got new spark plugs, distributor, coil, and wire set.)

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

Do below to determine if its fuel or spark problem

Get a helper disconnect a sparkplug wire or 2 and ground it to the engine atleast 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, Do you hear the fuel pump come On when you turn key on? If not check fuel pump fuse and fuel pump relay if so, 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, cap and rotor, distributor pick-up coil, ignition control module, cam and crank sensors and computer Note: If it doesn't apply disregard it and keep testing
