I had the same problem, the cause of my fuel pump going bad though, was the fuel pump relay.. heard these go bad on these cars..
Had it go out twice. First time was just due to old age and it wasn't started for 12 years. Second time was because rust from the gas tank clogged it up. First time we dropped tank and replaced it ourselves, didn't see any rust. Second time we took it to a shop and paid around $200.
Fuel lines and rubber connetion pieces are dry rotted and fuel leakes out of all lines causing the the car to stall and not start
