Hello logan! I know you think its a fuel problem, but dont rule out timing! these are known to break belts and trash crank sensors! There is a seconary belt behind the timing belt that gets very loose and should be replaced as well. Pull the timing cover and look at the belt, it may be missing some teeth. If the ckp sensor is bad, it will cut off fuel to the motor.
