My '91 Capri had the same problem. It turned out to be a problem with something I had never heard of before. It's called a stator. I believe it is located in or near the distributor, and replacement fixed my problem.

Likely the fuel filter is clogged so you need to change it. If you can keep the engine running by pumping throttle a few times at start up, and then it runs, check the filter; cost about $10.00.
