Default Problem/ question about my 1981 volvo dying on me

So I filled up the tank yesterday and went home. About an hour later i took the car out and didnt warm it up cuz it was hot outside and i started it not to long ago. So i drive about 4 blocks and it stalls and dyes. I pull over and restart it and start driving and it dyes again this time it didnt start up again. The Battery, altinator are new so its not that.. my dad said possibly sumthign with the spark plugs becuz when i start it up i can smeel gas but doesnt spark over.. Just wondering if this has happened and if any one knows what to do.

You will need to start with Basics.
Check for spark.
Made sure the Plugs are good.
