Default 1992 Bonne Won't fire up?

I have this new problem as of about 1 hour ago.

Car won't stay running....stalls out.
That is if I can even get it to fire up.

It cranks fast....

I started it today... It ran ok for a minute then it started idleing really rough.
Shaking and everything.
Not like this car at all to ever do that.

I take good care of it. It was running very strong just last night.

`````````````````````````````````````````````````` `````````````````````````````
BEFORE TODAY
Great power from the take off.
Great smooth idle, and
the WIRES and PLUGS ARE always maintained by me.
`````````````````````````````````````````````````` `````````````````````````````
The only thing that i didnt like is the other night when I popped the hood,
I hear like an AIR HISSING NOISE.
***BUT EVEN WITH THIS NOISE IT RAN GREAT!

It was coming from an area where the little air hoses are, near the fuel system. One doesnt look so great. It mounts up near the firewall and wraps arouns the brake system, and comes around in a long tube going into a unit right below the master cylinder, that looks like it has linkage connected to the gas pedal.


______LATEST UPDATE_______
Some more info RE: this car not firing up....

Checked for codes.

Have CODE # 13
and CODE # 58

The Fuel Pump is making a noise turning on when key is in the on position.
I checked shrader valve. Gas is dripping out.

If I let the car sit for an hour or 2 hours it will start up only for a minute tho.

But when it starts It has this really weird HOLLOW sound up near the front... sounds like it is coming from up near the air filter area.

I cant get to the auto parts store to get parts because the car wont run.

I have to try to find someone to give me a ride to get there.

I will replace the hoses, but dont think that will help
BECAUSE last night the car was running in A1 condition perfect this way.

The only thing that I did today was check the BUS ground in the wire harness ...and it looked to be in PERFECT COND with NO COROSSION at ALL.

Any suggestions...

All are welcome and appreciated.

Thanks

Help...

Sounds to me like a vacuum line that needs to be replaced.
