Surely as soon as I decide to start selling my car, it has it's first real problem. It won't crank, attempts to turn over but won't crank. It has fuel, no CEL, battery and everything is fine. Would it be a better bet to assume fuel issue or spark issues first?

Three things the engine needs to run.... Fuel, Spark & Air. So you will have to start to trouble shoot and find out which one you're not getting, or not getting properly? Good luck!

That's what my friend thinks too. Just more $$$ down the drain I suppose, was saving to get a dent fixed.
Yeah same thing happened to me it just wouldn't run for the life of it lol just kept churing lol if u want to really know if its your pump have a friend turn the key to the last setting and put your head near the tank and u should hear the fuel pump ring for about a second if it dose its not the pump and if no ring its the pump

Test for spark. Remove a cable or plug whichever applies and put in near a ground. If u have spark it will arc it to the ground ...... just make sure u arent touching anything groundish just in case it has a bad coil/ wire the one u choose to test for spark. Personal experience it will tingle quite a bit lol. For fuel use the test port. Use a small object to depress the schrader valve to see if there is fuel in the rail. Once no more fuel comes out turn the key to on w/o starting the car and check to see if u have fuel. Anything else besides those 2 can be timing or a crank or cam sensor gone bad.
