Ok this is what u need to do, 1st visit your parts store, buy a fuel pressure gauge, after that take that black cover over the throttle body off if u have one on it, now locate the fuel injector rail, in the middle of the rail u will see a small black screw on cap on test port, remove cap, now take fuel pressure gauge & screw the hose on tightly, after that turn ignition on do not try to start at this point, just turn ignition on, check gauge should read about 38-40 psi, also while turning key on, seat inside vehicle & listen for a buzzing sound from under the rear seat, if no buzzing & fuel pressure reading is zero, then u need a fuel pump, and this is after u have checked all fuses, good luck.
