98 zx2 crank but no start

98 zx2 died while driving. Will crank but will not start. Checked 1 plug and had spark to plug. Fuel pressure guage at injector bar shows pressure at startup. Noid light shows signal to injectors. Fuses appear good. Not sure where to go next (maybe to tech for service), but hate to give up. Any suggestions? sensor? control relay?

Re: 98 zx2 crank but no start

Is that the zetec engine? Does it crank smoothly? Does it have compression?

Zetec engine. Gives slight jolt like one cylinder may have tried to fire and then just steady cranking. Also no OBD codes.

Re: 98 zx2 crank but no start

Could the timing belt be the problem? When was it changed?

Timing belt frayed and loose though not broken, probably jumped. That's my problem. Thanks for the direction.
