I have the vehicle listed above XT jdm swapped the engine I rebuilt myself. I am having an issue; I crank the car then it starts then shuts off instantly. I can run it on starting fluid into the throttle body. I have fuel pressure, good spark since it will run. I am stuck I need input. I will add a video to help you better understand.

Hi,

If it runs on starting fluid then it isn't getting fuel. Is there a security system in the vehicle and if so is the light staying on?

Next, I need you to check for an injector pulse. Here is a link that explains how it is done:

Let me know.
