I have an old '97 Altima - was driving down driveway and it

Customer Question

I have an old '97 Altima - was driving down driveway and it simply stopped running. All electrical is working, starter works, it's like it's not getting fuel or spark.
JA: Does the engine turn over at all? Is this the original starter?
Customer: Yes
JA: Are you fixing your Altima yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: If I can, yes. I've checked the logical fuses, but haven't found anything yelling "it's me".
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: That's all I know, except there's plenty of fuel and power to everything, as far as I know.
