Well you need to figure out if the problem is a "fuel issue or an ignition issue" did you replace the fuel filter? have you done a fuel pressure test ? a volume test would also be helpful "gallons per minute test " once you have determined that the problem is or is not fuel related you can move on to the ignition system. The problem could be as simple as a bad or loose ground somewhere but you need to test before replacing parts. you may have a bad fuel regulator or a defective ignition coil, or it could be a relay to the fuel pump itself. The shot gun method will only cost you more and more money. TESTING circuits and systems will save money.

check the wiring look for loose connectors and clean the connections if needed. I would also check the contacts " pins " in each of the connections related to your ignition. if possible do a voltage check and voltage drop test for this circuit. take your time do some detective work on the wire harness " look it over carefully" you may find the answer is something simple.
