I replaced spider injectors, replaced battery, plugs and coils are new, also has no engine light on dash. Will run for a few seconds with starter fluid.

Hi,

If it starts with fluid and then stalls, it isn't getting fuel. You mentioned the new injectors. Have you checked the fuel pump pressure to make sure it is within spec? If you haven't, that is what needs to be done next.

Here is a link that explains in general how it's done:

If you look below, I included the directions for attaching the fuel pressure gauge. The last picture provides the manufacturer's pressure specifications.

Do this and let me know what you find. Also, if you already have done this and it's good, let me know.

Take care,

Joe
