Then you need to perform a fuel pressure test. You hook up a pressure gauge to the fuel line and see if you have the proper psi. Can you hear the fuel pump prime when you turn the key?

Might be beneficial to check fuses and fuel pump relay first. If you hear pump it is not your relay unless it fails when it gets hot. High resistance also makes a relay bad. You can easily test a relay.

Spray some starting fluid down the throttle body. It should run a few seconds on that. If so it's definitely a fuel problem. Get a hammer and hit the bottom center of the gas tank. If that gets you going it's the fuel pump. HTH. -Jim
