I think the problem is probably the fuel pump. One way to test this is to take of the air cleaner and intake, and spray ether-based starter fluid into the throttle body through the metal grill that you will find when you take the air cleaner box off (1 phillips screw on top, and a 10mm head screw on the lower left of the box). While you're spraying, someone in the car should hold the throttle open (hold down the gas pedal) then let up off the gas when you're done (a good 15 second spray should do it, then step back) and try to start it. It will probably crank a couple of times, then start up (possibly with a flash and puff of white smoke, make sure you step back before they turn the key). The engine will run for a few seconds, and even rev up if you pump the gas pedal, then stall out and refuse to start again until you spray more starter fluid into it. Unfortunately, you have to pull the gas tank to change the fuel pump, because it is inside it.
