I am having issues with my optima not starting and getting no spark. I just got done putting a new head, timing belt, crank sensor, cam sprocket and balance belt on. I drove it for about 40 miles and then it just quit like it ran out of fuel. I replaced the fuel pump and still nothing. Any ideas on what to check next. Any and all help would be much appreciated.

I would def re-check that crank sensor.. I have seen it towed in a bunch of times from someone who "just replaced it" and didn't get the sensor installed correctly. The belt will rub against the sensors wiring, and short it out
