I cannot figure this problem out on my car, the car will start up and idle, once I push the gas it dies. Fuel filter and pump were replaced less than a year ago. Thanks for the help

Check my post about the 1994 mazda that dies when accelerating. It was the same problem. A wire came loose and shorted out in the sensor. You can repair them. My car would start and idle and die when the gas was pressed. I know how frustrating this can be. If you have other issues I have done a great deal of work with my protege.
