88 civic, the engine starts and runs long enough to use up the fuel in the supply line then dies. I put 12 volts to the fuel pump and I can hear it work. I also replaced the fuel pressure regulator. There is fuel past the main filter on the fire wall as well. I pulled the tank and removed the fuel pump and found the filter clogged with a fine power thats in the tank. I replaced the filter and put it all back together but still have the same problem. If the car sits long enough the pressure in the tank fills the feed line again and it starts but quits. I can only assume the fuel is not getting to the injectors. Could the relief valve be bad? How can I test the fuelo pressure, there isn't a shreider valve in the fuel line? Thanks for any help.
