Sounds like a clogged fuel line. Remove the line and blow compressed air through it. If the car's been sitting awhile you might want to blow all the fuel lines out. HTH. - Jim

clog in between or not enough pressure to push the fuel that far. clean out the lines and see if that helps check the voltage on pump to make sure it is high enough and pressure is high enough.

The fuel distributor has a rubber valve inside that sometimes fails
