All of a sudden the car will not start. The battery has power and the car turns over. Using another post here i swapped the fuel_pump_relay switch and the start relay switch and the car started 3 days ago. I drove these 3 days starting and stopping etc. with no issues.
Now today same thing the car will not start, it turns over exactly as before the swap.

I know we need gas and spark and I am not sure what one I am missing. Is there an easy way to test this?

Today is cooler and I am not sure if this would have an impact or not.
thanks

Five cent grease monkey tests:

Whack on the fuel tank bottom hard with a hammer whilst an assistant turns over the starter. If the fuel pump is bad or not working, the car will sputter and try to start while you beat the tank.

Take off a spark plug wire end from one of the cylinders and stick an old spark plug in the end. Hold it close to the motor while the assistant again turns the key. If you get blue spark, then spark is probably okay.
