Tries to fire but won't crank

My son's '97 Taurus quit on him on the side of the interstate today. The engine turns over and sounds like it is firing some but will not quite crank. I tried spraying starting fluid in the intake but it did not appear to make any difference, so I felt like it was a spark problem. I installed a used coil pack off of anouther Taurus but it did not help either.

He said that the check engine light has on for a few months so I scanned it. It pulled up codes P0133, P1131, P0301, P0305, AND P0171. The engine is a V-6 3.0 code U.

I did not think to ask him, but I think it has around 200K miles on it.

Any ideass as to what might be the problem?
