Fuel Issue

So I was teaching my GF how to drive stick, when the car died.. I couldn't get it started again, so I got some starter fluid and it cranks for a second then dies. It looks like there is a fuel delivery issue.

Today the pump/filter were replaced... Still the same issue.. Could a line be clogged? Any idea on the best way to go forward?

Thanks for the help!

Are you sure it is a fuel problem and not a ignition problem?
check for spark and if there is none most likely you have a bad ignition module in the distributor and you can get one at the local parts store.
