I dont know the fuel pressure but I do have spark in the spark plugs. It turns over for about 2 mins then it just shut off.

So it runs for a couple mins then shuts off?Will it restart after shutting off or do you have to wait before it will restart?Why did you replace the fuel pump?

It will not restart after shutting off. I replaced it because I had a gas leak and you can smell it threw the whole car.

Thats starting fluid or you could use carb spray to prime it to see if it starts on that. You can rent a pressure gauge at auto zone. To check pressure you just follow the fuel line up to the injector rail there will be a threaded nipple. Thats where you screw the pressure gauge on. Then start it and wait for it to die and see what the pressure reads when it wont start.
