Sounds like a fuel pump........and of course it's in the fuel tank which you will have to drop. Do you feel any buzzing or whinning from the fuel tank when you just turn the key on, do not start. Tap the fuel tank with a rubber mallet just to send some vibration through the tank and see if that helps. If it starts and runs you'll still need a fuel pump. You can go to a shop and have them put a fuel pressure gauge on your fuel line or rail at the engine and turn it on and see what kind of fuel pressure you are getting
