An engine needs 3 things to run. Air, fuel, and spark. You are either missing one of these or it is firing at the wrong time. Just because the fuel pump is running does not mean it is pumping fuel to the injectors. A clogged fuel filter comes to mind. Could be the pump is bad and not really pumping any fuel. Check to make sure you have fuel. change the cap and rotor
