Hello thank you for using FixYa.com for your answer my name is David.
You say it wont start in the normal way by just turning it on but if you pour gas in the throttle body
it will start sounds like you have a weak fuel pump most likely but there are a few other things that could cause it also .

Sounds like the injector is not supplying the proper amount of fuel. Try unpluging the TPS first and then the IAC motor, both located on the trottle body.
