Check/Change Fuel Filter(s), PVC Valve & Emission Hoses
Gas that sits too long won't fire easily that's why we have to add winterize to our lawn mowers!
Try filling the tank with some high grade fuel cleaner additive. This stuff is like rocket fuel (about $10).
Also add a can of dry gas as you may have a lot of water and water vapor in your system!
Get a couple more cans of starter fluid too. (I always needed at least two to get my diesel running for summer)
Keep spraying and starting (It always took me at least a full can sometimes 2)
When it starts keep the gas pedal down and rev high for a good 5-10 minutes then see if it will idle.
If it still stumbles and falls consider adding another can of fuel system cleaner and/or dry gas.
Don't drain the tank as this usually just makes it worse by letting the bottom sludge stir up.
Never let your gas tank get too low as this will foul up your fuel system and always add fuel cleaner after every oil change (a must for fuel injection and cat. converter care)

if you are not hearing the buzz the fuel pump is not engaging if you have a test light or a power probe test the power wire going to the pump using the "quick connect" if you have power going in to the pump and have no noise the pump is bad. If you don't have power then test the fuel pump relay and fuse. an easy test is to pull the relay located under the hood and switch with one of the ones next to it turn the key and listen for the pump if you have no noise the relay is more than likely ok check the fuse. To test the fuse use the test light because you can't always see a broken fuse and you want to see if you have power coming in. check all the connections listed above for corrosion and improper space between terminals If I was a betting man I would go with a bad fuel pump judging on the year I assume it has quite a few miles and fuel pumps burn out with use. any time you replace a fuel pump you should replace the fuel filter. this filter almost never gets changed and tends to rust so make sure you have plenty of penetrating oil handy. do not use heat obviously.
