What is the fuel pressure reading? If you don't have volume also it will die. You can have pressure but if you have low or no volume then you have a bad pump.
This year model also has a problem with the fuel pump connector burning out. After all it is only 21 years old.
The part number from napa for the connector is ECHLIN line #FPC100
