Default 1998 saturn won't start

we have a 98 saturn SL2 with around 98K miles on it. The car has been rock solid up until yesterday morning. My son said he started the car, pulled it around to the side of the house and then turned it off to go inside. He said it ran rough. then when he went out to go to school it wouldn't start at all. I cranked on it a little last night. It will hit for a split second once in a while but won't start.
I replaced all the plugs with the OEM spec plugs and gapped them correctly about a month ago as we were getting the crank sensor error and I read on this forum to try this first. We still have the check engine light for that code. I guess the first thing I need to do tonight is make sure we're still getting spark. Any other ideas on where to start ?
I did notice that i can hear the fuel pump gurgle when I turn the key and it kicks off after a few seconds so I'm assuming it's okay.
