Check the fuel pressure regulator, remove vacuum hose does it have gas, if so the FPR is ruptured. If not check the coolant temperature sensor could be stuck in open loop and computer is thinking it needs fuel but it doesn't because of its reading. Or excessive fuel pressure-you need a fuel gauge to do this.
