It's definitely a fuel problem. Is the fuel pump running? Did you check/replace the fuel pump relay? Do you have a trigger signal at the fuel injectors? Did you transfer the PROM from the original ECM (brain) to the new ECM? Was the check engine or service engine soon light on before it quit? Have you checked the crankshaft position sensor?
