Car initially runs for 20 seconds and then engine stops runningand not starting back up. Changed coils. Changed fuel pump and still same problem. If I remove fuel pump relay car will start for another 5 to ten seconds and then cut off as if it's flooding out. Getting good spark and compression in all cylinders. Will not run when spraying starter fluid
Do you

Hello,

This sounds like you have a fuel injector that is shorted causing the computer to give a full on signal to the remaining injectors. Unplug the injectors and see if yo can get it to run on starting fluid.

Also here is a guide on how to test the injectors.

Please let us know what happens.
