Did you change the fuel filter? If it's plugged up it won't get fuel to the regulator. Are you positive the pump is working?

Where are you checking the fuel at then? It could be bad fuel injectors? You can take them off and have them bench checked.

I had this problem on my 98 It was due to wet and dirty electrical connection. I believe it is the one that plugs in the fuel pump.
