B4 Passat CL Automatic -starter cranks but engine doesn't fire.

Hi I was driving my B4 passat automatic 2.0L (engine code AGG) and it lost all power as I was coming up to an intersection as I was slowing down. The starter cranks but the engine will not start over.

The fuel pump works and the engine is getting fuel..the spark plugs spark when they are taken out of the engine. (on the engine block)

Today the airbag light does not come one (in addition to the engine not turning over)-don't know if it is related.
I changed relay 167 and checked the fuel pump fuse and they are ok...

I am wondering if it could be electrical in nature as in a relay or another fuse or whatever the problem could be...

The vw dealer near me wants a ton of money just for diagnostics and parts and due to the age of the car I am hoping to fix it myself. Any help would be greatly appreciated...

Thanks

Tom

If you have spark & fuel, check your timing belt.
