Default 2003 PT wont start..

Happy new year all!! well My Pt is been out for almost 2 months because itwont start! We replaced all the spark plogs and all the wires 1 month 1/2 because its been running a little off, that helped for a month then all of a sudden it stalls on me while backing up so pushed it back in our garage had the battery tested, battery ended up being replaced for a new one and still wont start!, it turning over but it wont start all the way, we can smell gas while trying to start it so I'm guessing fuel pump is ok??maybe?. I just need to know what is causing this so we can fix it ASAP. thanks in advance..

Does the engine light (fault light) come on? Did you pull any codes from the computer? What is your mileage, anywhere around 100K ? You guessed the fuel pump is OK, what about the spark? Do you have spark at the wires? Two sensors (Cam & Crank) are known to be a problems with the PT but both would set a fault code in the computer. Check the codes!
