Buy a bicycle ?
You are having fun !.....................NOT !!!
no 1....Check the fuel inertia switch has not been tripped ?
The problem has to be tied in with something you have done, as it was running till you put your hands on it.
Check back at the battery and make sure you have not pulled off a connection somewhere by mistake in the vicinity of the battery.
Check your fuses with a 12v test light !
Are you getting a spark at the plugs ?
Are you getting fuel pressure to the engine ?
Do you think your cam belt has decided to give up the ghost ? have you ever renewed it ?
Hopefully you have got it running by now ?
If not, try running through these thoughts.
Good Luck !
Please give a FixYa rating, if you think I deserve it !

I have the same problem on my 2002 Eclipse RS 2.4l 4 cylinder. Replaced the battery, starter, fuel pump(not at one time) . It started up when I had the starter put on as well the fuel pump. But everytime I started the car up it ran good till I turned it off the problem was still there. The car sounds like it wants to start but it sputters you can smell the gas so I know its getting fuel. it starts up fine with a cold start like in the morning.
Try getting a diagnostic thats what Im going to do next week.

could be the crank sensor, you need to check spark and fuel delivery, if you have fuel then its got to be the high tension side of things that are wrong, does this model run off a coil pack for the ht, could be that, you said you change the alternator, check connections at the rear of alternator, this could be the supply for the ht etc,good luck.
