Have you checked the fuel pump/fuel filter? I would start there.

The fuel pump comes on every time, the injectors are shutting off. It starts perfect then shuts down.

There are two other fixes that might be it. The idle air control valve, or the CPS (Camshaft Positioning Sensor). Have you checked these?

Is there a way to test either of those without just buying parts?
