Exclamation 01 Alero crank but wont start

01 Alero 3.4 V6 cranks but wont start

tested fuel pressure and was good (roughly 50 PSI)

battery is good and cranks strong.

im considering putting in a new fuel pump because even though the fuel pressure was good when i had checked it, i don't hear the pump cycling. I know this sounds strange and i might test it again just to be sure. It may be that the pump is only working intermittently and i got a false reading.

I replaced the fuel pump relay and made sure the fuse was good.

Another option is the electrical system. but i doubt this is the solution being that i have recently replaced the plugs and wires. Maybe the ignition coil?

Anyone know how to test the ignition coils (i believe there are 3 of them?) with a multi-meter?

Im just throwing some ideas out there, I'm really hoping you guys have some direction for me before i drop the tank. I have a very small garage and am working with jacks/jack stands. No lift..... pain in the asssss!

Thanks for the help in advance. First time poster, hoping you can lend a hand to a relatively capable home mechanic,
