had same problem last year. turned out to be a dead fuel pump. should be able to hear a slight short whirring sound after turn key before the engine cranks. this is the pump priming the line for fuel. if no whirring sound, it's a good bet that it is the fuel pump. b sure to ask for pump/sender combo kit to replace. i made the mistake of just the pump, had to go back for a sender.

Got spark? Got fuel pressure? Need to know! Can't guess at it, be wrong every time.
