Spray some starting fluid in the intake, if engine runs a few seconds, then it is fuel problem.

Check the fuel pressure regulator for gas in the vacuum line, if present, the FPR must be replaced.

The best approach is to measure fuel pressure with mechanical gauge. It is possible that even though the pump is running, the rubber pressure hose on the pump has ruptured and no fuel is being delivered.
