Default 2005 pt cruiser no start

Hey everyone,
this girl has a 2005 pt cruiser 2.4l non turbo. Car died when she put it in drive and now will not start. Engine turns over .Sounds like the fuel pump comes on with the key. How do I check for fuel pressure? Also my friend sprayed starting fluid into the intake and it starts, but it dies right away. Any ideas?

There's a Schrader valve-type test port on the fuel rail. A fuel pressure guage capable of measuring up to 70 psi and ab adapter suitable for connection to the valve will tell you if you are getting pressure from the pump.
