Question about Cars & Trucks
Check to see if you have spark, then check your fuel delivery system.
Oh, by the way there is an inertia fuel cut off switch that might have also popped up thereby cutting off all fuel to the engine. These hidden switches have been installed in vehicles since Pintos were blowing up in the 80's. Easiest fix in the world, go to owners manual, find section on "Fuel Cutoff Switch", locate switch (usually in the passenger side kick panel or the right rear quarter panel) and push the button down. Start vehicle, drive away happy.

I have had the same problem in trying to start my van. I noticed that it only did this in the rain or high humidity day. In tearing apart my van to find a solution, I had noticed that when trying to start the van, the ignition coil was arcing onto the mount holding it in place. I only noticed this due to the fact that by now, it was dark. After changing the coil, I never ran into this problem again.
I do hope this helps.

Injectors or Carb? is there fuel presurt to the line near the engine and what is the presure.
The mechanoc was it a shop or buddy at home? Can you hear the fuel pump run when the key is turned on?

Go to the autozone website at autozone.com and register your vehicle. It's free and will give you access to an online repair manual for your vehicle. The procedures for changing the fuel pump should be available there. Sure hope this helped and best wishes.
