Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Ok here is the deal. Car starts but will not stay running longer than a few seconds. Fuel pump is good and gas flows out of fuel lines and gas is present at fuel rail and injector locations, we can hear injectors pulse when using stehescope. we spray gas in air throttles car will run .
Why does car not stay running?

It could also be an issue with the fuel pressure. While obviousley fuel flow is importaint, fuel pressure is also just as importaint.

Check that all the hoses are connected to the air intake. sounds like the same issue i had after pulling the plenum off and missing one the hoses attached to the air intake upon putting it back together. Cranks fine, runs good for a few seconds and shuts off
