1999 SL2
Wrench 1999 Saturn SL2 1.9 DOHC runs rough

I have replaced CTS, plugs, plug wires, crankshaft sensor and cleaned egr. When I started the car yesterday it started fine I drove for 6 miles and it cuts out. Its 5 speed so I downshift and it starts again but it only runs at high rpms. I made it home but now I try to start it and it cranks over but will not start. When I turn the key on I can hear the fuel pump. Iv'e been having this issue for a week and is worse now and won't start.

You either have an electrical or fuel problem for sure any check engine light
on? quick easy things to check for are

-starter fuse in the panel

-battery conections check corossion on both ends of terminals
make sure there clean & tight

-you could have a bad fuel pump quick test for this is get some
engine starting fluid spray some in the intake housing while someone
inside your car cranks it over if it starts right up you have a bad fuel pump.

-also check for spark at the plugs ? and what do they look like are they
wet with gas fouled up ?
