i can also hear the fuel pump running and the fuel going through the hoses, so fairly confident it's not a fuel problem.

Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

In order for the engine to start and stay running you need good spark to the spark plugs, injector pulse and proper fuel pressure. To try and determine what is causing this can you check each one of these and see which one of them you are loosing. Post back with your results and I will try and help you determine the cause.
