Aiiight well lets get crazy here. Try getting a bottle of a starting fluid from the parts store, something like "Quick Start" or any other. Follow the directions and once you get it started spray 1-1.5sec bursts into the intake and see if you can keep it running. It should tell you either it IS or ISN'T the fuel delivery system. If it stays running when you spray I'd be 99% sure its your fuel delivery. If it makes no difference or doesn't help all that much it probably isn't. Process of elimination baby heh. Also do a compression check on the cylinders. You can get the tool for like $20 bucks but if your mechanic is worth his weight in cardboard he'll have one haha. Good luck
