Sorry this vehicle does not have a fuel shut off switch or inertia switch > that's ford ! If you pour fuel in the throttle body an it runs It's something with the fuel system , an if you replaced the pump an filter an regulator , It has to be electrical ! did you check voltage at the fuel pump relay ? What engine does yours have , 2.5 , 3.3 L ? There is a in line fuse for the fuel pump near the relay ! There are four relays front right of engine compartment mounted on radiator support cross member . The one for fuel pump is the one on the inside . Fuse is near there an there is a connector not connected to anything ,this is for fuel pump prime . Jump battery voltage to it a see if it runs then ! or replace relay !
look under car follow fuel line you will find the filter.. buy one first so you know what you are looking for. its to replace once you find it. The "strainer" is an item that keeps gtrash from getting into the electric fuel pump.. you do not usually replace the strainer unless you replace the pump it requires removing the gas tank.
Like many late model cars the fuel system in this car doesn't use an in line filter anymore, this has been the case since the early 2000's, so there is no part number. The only filter in the system is the fine mess nylon screen at the intake to the fuel pump inside the gas tank.
You've already eliminated the spark plug & wireset, distributor cap & rotor. Sounds like your car needs a tune-up, specifically, the PCV (positive crankcase ventilation) valve, and/of the EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) valve.
Components checked/replaced during a tune-up are: air filter motor oil motor oil filter breather filter fuel filter(s) fuel strainer PCV valve EGR valve spark plugs spark plug wires ECM or distributor cap & rotor cabin air filter transmission oil filter transmission oil engine coolant check all vacuum hoses and lines

From the info you provided, it seems like it is not getting constant supply of fuel. I think that don't have a carburator. It has a TBI(Throttle Body Injector. You should hear a faint humming noise at the back coming from within the fuel tank when you turn the key on. Thats the fuel pump. Your fuel pump may have gone out.
