If the engine runs with carb cleaner or starting fluid, then I would say you have a fuel pressure issue. How did you check the fuel pressure if the car won't stay running? I would suspect the fuel pump is the issue at this point. Could also be an ignition issue.

the macanic man took the feul pressure regulator off and put his hand to block the hold and i turn the egnation to start he slightly move his hand off the hold and the gas was spraying out with force

he also took off the lead that conect to the fuel injector and when i turn the egnation you could hear the pump come on the stop then i turn to start and wile turning over the gas kept shooting out he (the macanic) told me the pump was good
