check the fuse.

Twenty two year old... I would guess that the fuel pump needs replacing. Check the fuse and relay before dropping the tank.

I'm with tenspeed on this one, if it is the pump make sure you replace all of the filters, one in the tank with the pump and the main line fuel filter.

^time to replace the fuel filter^ ..if that does not work the fuel pump is next.

Mine did that a year ago stopped finally died. Changed the mass air flow sensors and the part it bolts on to. It would die, start and die again. Replaced the fuel pump and a whole lot of parts to no avail.

Replaced fuel pump replaced fuel pump relay and still won't star
