1990 crank & idle but won't throttle up

I need some help form the Mustang gurus. My daughter has a 2000 Mustang with the 3.4L. It has been running fine but today she started it up and it will idle but it will go dead when she tries to give it throttle. No check engine light. She is 500 miles from me and freaking out. I am headed over to her tomorrow but what do I need to be looking for? Listed below is my diagnostic plan but if you guys have any other suggestions, I would greatly appreciate it.

1 Make sure it has gas (I know my daughter)LOL
2 Change fuel filter (I have the tool and the filter is cheap)
3 Check fuel pressure - I have a fuel pressure testing kit but not real sure where to attach it on the mustang

Any other suggestions?
