When I did the tune up the car was working good, after the tune up is not working
I checked the fuel pressure and it was low, I changed the fuel pump, fuel filter, distributor cap and rotor, spark plugs and wire. It still does not run. When I put some gas directly into the throttle body it works, but after it runs out the car stops.

By it not starting I mean it's not running, the engine rotates but doesn't start

Ok, when you turn the key to the "ON" position without starting, can you hear the fuel pump turn on for a 3 - 5 seconds?

If not check the relay.

Also when you changed the Pump did you change the Wiring Harness?

When I turn the key on I hear the fuel pump works. I put a new relay too. My question was why when I put the starting fuel, it works and after it runs out it stops. I have sparks but I haven't checked the ignition switch module.

I also changed the wiring harness.

Where do you think is the problem?

I believe your problem is with the Injectors below is a pic of what it looks like and is usually replaced as a unit.

I say this because you can spray or put fuel in the throttle body and it will start up and run till uses fuel up.

It is also common with your situation.
