This sounds to me like a classic fuel pump failure, I would have a certified mechanic inspect your fuel pressure. If the fuel pump is fine, check for voltage at the fuel pump relay. If these aren’t the problem check for spark it could be a failed crankshaft or camshaft sensor which controls injector pulse and spark.
