Try spraying some starting fluid into the throttle body. If it runs then dies, or it may run, then there would be a fuel issue. You should check the fuel pressure. Start by replacing the fuel filter, it just may be clogged. There is a strainer on the end of the fuel pump in the gas tank that could be clogged, or the fuel pump is no good.
