Hello, my name is ***** ***** I'm here to help get your problem solved. It sounds like your fuel pump has probably failed. I'd start by seeing if it runs on starting fluid. If it runs on starting fluid replace the fuel filter. If it still has problem verify fuel pump has good power/ground and replace pump. Let me know how it goes or if you have more questions, thanks.
