I stopped for awhile and the car got a little hot and when I started again it died, and would not start again. It would start and stay running if you sprayed carb cleaner in with the injectors. Have replaced the computer, and the injectors themselves are fine.
Do you
have the same problem?

Check the fuel pressure 41-47 psi at idle. Or key on engine not running. If it's low the fuel pump may be bad.

I found out what the problem was a couple of months ago, it was a electrical short. Fixed those and the car runs fine now.
