check the fire to the spark plugs first,if they fire good check fuel pressure,if good check compression especially if it's a 300 6 cyl they can almost completly loose compression and sometimes no smoke or any thing.that pretty well covers all bases gas pressure,fire,and commpression.if low compression check timing they had plastic on the outside of the gears it breaks and falls off then time jumps,warning i've seen some vehicles still show decent compression even out of time just depending on the position of crank and cam.hope it helps

Could possibly be the anti theft system. This system can actually turn off your fuel injectors 1-5 seconds after starting. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/

You say t pump is coming on, but do you fuel coming up to the fuel injector rail? You can check for fuel by pushing down the valve located at the left front side of fuel rail. It looks like a tire air fill stem. Be very careful as fuel is under 40 psi pressure and can spray all over the place. do this with engine OFF and have a rag to cover the valve. Just press with tip of screwdriver and be sure valve is covered. If a little gas come out,you know you have fuel. If not gas then check fuel delivery system i.e pump, filter, lines or pickup tube.
If there is fuel in the rail, then there is most likely a problem with the control module (computer).
Check for fault codes with an OBD II reader. You can usually rent one at your local part store. You can look up fault codes to find out where the problem might lie.

This can be a tough case, You may want to start by having the ECM checked for code first, there are too many things that can cause your engine to just shut down. I would not start by just throwing parts on it; this could be costly!
Have someone scan the vehicle fore codes first!
