85 Toyota mr2

Asked by Mar 24, 2016 at 09:33 AM about the 1985 Toyota MR2

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

We just  recently  bought a 85 Toyota mr2.
The guy we bought it from said the starter
in the car was bad so we had to push start
it to get it home . Once home we took the
starter out and tested it to find out it works
fine . So we redid the wires to the starter
and everything and put it back it . Now the
car sounds like it's about to start when we
turn the key but then it just stops after a
seconed of the key being in their . We
changed the fuel filter and checked and
fixed the  igniter's wires but still nothing so
it will start but not run . We sprayed some  
flammable brake cleaner in the air intake
And then it ran for the while that we
sprayed the stuff in their so I'm guessing
their is a fuel problem but i don't know  
how to fix it .
