The pump only energizes for a few seconds when the keys turned to the on position. NO fuel, low fuel pressure.. bad fuel pump or leaking fuel line, rusted. Time to replace the fuel pump.

Yep fuel pump time, don't forget to replace the fuel filter and the fuel pump relay at the same time, most manufactures won't honor the warranty if you don't.
