ENGINE SHUT OFF WHILE DRIVING 70 MPH ON THE INTERSTATE

(1998 Plymouth Neon)
in Sandyville, WV on March 19, 2011
WHILE DRIVING TO WORK MY ENGINE JUST SHUT DOWN WHILE I WAS GOING 70 MPH. THERE WAS NO WARNING BEFORE IT QUIT, NO NOISES OR ANYTHING. NOW THE ENGINE WILL NOT START AND I HAVE BOUGHT A NEW TIMING BELT, TENSIONER AND WATER PUMP. DUE TO THE CAR WILL NOT START, WE HAD TO CHECK WITH THE TIMING MARKS TO SEE IF THE CAR WAS OUT OF TIME AND IT IS LINED UP SHOWING IT IS IN TIME. WHAT ELSE COULD OF CAUSED THIS PROBLEM AND WHAT ALL CAN WE CHECK TO SEE IF THAT MAY BE THE PROBLEM? DUE TO THE CAR WILL NOT START, IT IS HARD TO CHECK THE COMPUTER TO SEE WHAT DIAGNOSTIC CODES THAT THE CAR IS SHOWING. HELP!!!!

If cranks and will not start then need to inspect to see what is missing when will not start. Spark or fuel? Since you said it just shut down I suspect the ignition module because when a fuel pump goes bad it usually coughs a bit before shut down.
