    Hello! I realize this is an older post, but just discovered it. A couple things you should check are the fuel pressure and pump relay, and maybe the ignition switch. It sounds like the switch is powering the fuel pump in the start position but not in the run position. check fuel pressure with key off, on, and in start, (cranking). Check power on the output side of the relay with key in all three positions as well. Good luck!
