It could be a fuel injector(s)

Fuel injectors were checked. Would they need to be rechecked after installing rebuilt computer

your Tracker shouldn't have a carb. It should have fuel injectors.

Were the bench tested or tested on the Tracker?

Was the fuel Filter changed? It could be plugged? Is the line between the fuel filter and the fuel injectors plugged?

Ok when it's pour into the injector it runs an continues to run but after shutting it off it doesn't crank unless you pour gas into it again. I was driving it one day and it just stopped.

What's the bench?

Ok first off you don't need to post here and private message me both. Second, a bench test is when they remove the injectors from the vehicle and test them with a computer on a bench. By doing that they can check flow and pressure. Third, it sounds like the fuel pump you installed might be bad or have a bad electrical connection.

I have the exact same issue. I've replaced fuel pump and fuel pump relay. It will start with spraying carb cleaner down the throat of the "throttled body?" and run fine till turned off. I hear maybe the cam shaft sensor is bad? I can't afford to throw anymore money at this without knowing it will do the trick. PLEASE HELP. -Andrew

Sounds like a fuel delivery problem. Fuel pressure regulator would be a good place to start.
