engine wont start unless you pump the accelerator and runs if you keep the rpms up, it dies if you try to let it idle. I replaced the fuel pump and crank position senor. it was running fine one day and wouldnt start the next.

I'd check the fuel pressure regulator, it should be on the return end of the fuel rail under the hood, just pull the vacuum line off, if any gas comes out, you need a new one
