93 xj shut off . Has fuel & fire but wont run

I was driving to work and it abruptly shut off. It has fuel & spark. But it still wont run. Please help!! Im thinking possibly the timing chain but these motors are not known for issues like that. Besides its a baby only has 140,000 miles & regular oil changes. I changed the crank position sensor just to try it.

Don't guess, u need 2 ruler out items. If u think the timing chain jumped, u would have low compression on all cylinders. How did u check 4 fuel psi. U need 2 test with a guage.... 35 psi needed 2 fuel the injectors...

First thing;
Does the CEL light up for several seconds when you turn the ignition to the ON position?

Next check DTC codes using a code reader or do the key on key off thing;

If no DTC's do this next:
Remove the dizzy cap turn the key...watch the rotor. Does it turn? If it does then the TC didn't break.
