It's possible fuel pump, sometimes diaphragms inside bind and they allow fuel to drain back. Could be dirt in fuel line (dirty fuel filter) Chuck of dirt bouncing around and blocks fuel line. Replace the filter first, it's easier and cheaper.

It is unusual to have a real dirty filter. Consider having your fuel tank flushed out. Chances are that the injectors got some of that dirt in it. Get a bottle of a fuel tank additive called seafoam and pour it in the tank. Drive for ten miles and see if it clears up. Generally it will. J.

Sputters and dies

Do you have the shop manual? You need verify the workings of each part and system one at a time. Follow the working line. You stated you checked the fuel pressure. Where was it checked? At which location? Was it checked under throttle? Does the fuel regulator check out? Is the fuel good (any water)? These problems can sometimes be a bear to find. It takes time and patience. Do one thing at a time and verify that it works properly before moving on to the next part/attack plan. Check all ground conections from the block/engine to the frame/body. Once you verify that the fuel delivery is good, start looking at emission related parts and fuel management parts (TPS, MAF, Cold start injector, EGR, etc.)
