I just picked up a Mazda MPV it cranks but won't

Customer Question

Hi,I just picked up a Mazda MPV it cranks but won't start.Previous owner said it was running fine and the lights on dash came on van started slowing down and it went about 5 miles and died.It has fuel and spark and he had driven about 45 miles before this all happened and he did not get fuel that day so I assume it's not water in the tank...any idea what it could be? Timing chain looks good and no broken belts.
