For future reference in case anyone has similar problem, it was the fuel pump. I just hepled him put in a SVT
Focus 310 lph pump today and it fixed the problem.
Before we put the pump in, there was a little fuel coming out of the valve on the lines, but when you would try to continuously turn it over, only a little would come out at first, and then nothing. When you do this, there should be a steady stream of fuel coming out of the valve as long as you're trying to turn over the motor.
When we first tried to crank it after the new pump, it still wouldn't crank. We primed it a several times though (turn to KOEO, let the pump come on, turn back off, and repeat), and it fired right up after that. I assume this was just necessary to get air out of the system from the install of the new pump.
I thought I'd just post this in case anyone has this problem in the future.
Cliff Notes: If your car has been missing and suddenly won't start, it could be your fuel pump.
