Have you kept up on the maintenance according to the manufacturer's recommended schedule? have you checked the fuel filter? let's start there

Hi thanks for your time when I gat the car it had over heated and the engine was bad, so I made it new, plus take the fuel cell out cleaned it and replace the fuel filter, as I stated the fuel pressure is ok what happens is it stops pulsing the injectors for some reason.

"I made it new"did you rebuild the engine, or put another engine in? did you put a new fuel pump in? "Fuel cell" do you mean gas tank?

Have the sensors checked, especially the Crank Angle Sensor.
