Default 92 F150 straight 6 won't start now

So now my truck won't start at all. It was running fine today until I parked it for a few hours and now it just cranks and lightly sputters every so often, but won't start at all. It almost sounds like its getting very little to no fuel to the motor, but also sounds like it also might not be getting enough spark. I also tried spraying some starter fluid in the intake and it didn't change a thing, though I'm not too sure if starter fluid really helps with fuel injected engines. (I don't know much about fuel injection and I personally hate it)

I'm wondering if maybe the ignition module or something else with the EFI system could have took a shit? And would be the symptoms of a bad ignition module?

The truck is a 92 F150 straight 6 with a 5 speed manual for anyone that doesn't know.

enough fuel pressure? if theres not enough f.p then it wont start. should be a test port if you have a pressure gauge to hook up and see. not sure what spec is on those though.

I replaced the cap, rotor, coil, and few spark plugs, and she runs like new.
