OK. Everything was fine, then one day the car started to spudder like it was running out of gas. Filled the tank and added fuel injection cleaner. Later that night it just stopped. I thought it was the fuel pump. Changed that, it didn't help. It acts like it wants to start. It turns over. I haven't heard the pump even turn on. I also replaced the EFI relay and amg going to replace the ciruit opening relay and just found out where the inertia switch is, I will try that too. Any other suggestions?

could be the fuel pump ...you will need to do a fuel pressure test on it ..the pressure should be 63 anything lower even so much as a few lbs will cause this to happen ...as well if it sat that long i would consider a complete tune up and check all vacuum lines for dry-rot
Have you checked that you have power to the coil on cranking?You may also want to check wether you have a good strong spark at the spark plug.It could be an ignition module breaking down.If you have no power to the coil you may need to change the ignition relay.Its close to the battery.
two baic reasons... you can buy it... not on purpose of course but water gets into the gas station tanks for a couple reasons.
second if you happen to live in an area where fall is fast approaching and the temperature is changing during the day/evening you'll get condensation. just to give you an example.... when you go out in the morning to jump in your car you'll see a layer of moisture on your car.... it's not restricted to the outside of the car. one way to avoid that is to keep your tank completely filled with gas. considering the price of gas you would need to take out a second mortgage on your home to do that.
it's handy to buy a six pack of those little bottles of gas line antifreeze and keep them in your trunk... every time you fill up the tank add one.
pretty much any auto store will have them.... even walmart etc will have them as well.
