Default 02 saturn sl suddenly won't start

Went out to start my 02 Saturn SL DOHC and it sort of burped and will not start up. Turns over freely and every once in a while, it sounds like it will fire but doesn't. Fuel pump turns on and I pumped the gas pedal a few times and I smell gas. Replaced the timing belt, gears @ 20k miles back. Car has @94 k miles on it. No warning with this issue....has been running great. Please advise if someone has a solution. This is my first time using a forum....looking forward to it!

UPDATE- unhooked the battery for a while....still would not start, put some Ether in the air cleaner box....started up? Will take to a mecjanic to see whats up....still would love some advice- Thanks

sounds like the fuel pump isn't putting out enough or the filter is clogged
Take me out to the black
Tell them all I ain't coming back
Burn the land and boil the sea
You can't take the sky from me
