First start with the basics check fuses relating to fuel and or injectors make sure there is voltage next look into your crank sensor usually if it fails the computer doesn't know you are trying to start the vehicle because the signal the sensor is supposed to give out to the computer is not there due to a faulty sensor once the computer senses the signal from the crank sensor then the computer will send a command to the injectors to start pulsating gas let me know how this turns out for you.

Low RPM, high load is when the engine demands the best spark. More than likely you have a bad plug or plug wire causing this issue. You didn't say how many miles are on the car. It could also be due to a broken piston ring, but I wouldn't say that without knowing what kind of mileage was on the car.

Check the Fuel Pump Relay. behind the battery next to the OVP Over Voltage Protection Relay. They do fail. Occasionally the engine will not start when hot. This becomes more frequent until you are left stranded. If you are comfortable with jumping two terminals you can jump terminals 7 & 8 test the relay. if the car starts your Fuel pump relay is bad.

Check the seat belt wiring under your front seats, seat belt pre tensioners are related to the srs system and sometimes with seat adjustment these can become loose. The wires are mostly yellow in colour and if you check all connections are tight this may solve your problem

There are fuelpump relays for electric fuelpumps. You can have a bad fuelpump with either a mechanical or electric pump. You can have a clogged filter.

You can try Autozone.com and register your vehicle for free. Then you can get wiring diagrams and fusebox diagrams for the electric relays. Then you can find out which system you have.

It certainly sounds like you are on the right track since you discovered its a fuel problem.
