Engine starts but it burns the fuel in the filter and turns off?
My car would't start so i had to buy a charger and charge my battry. I tried cranking the engine again and my car started but after a minute or two it turned off. After i tried starthing my car like three times i found out that is burning the fuel in the filter and then it turns off because there is no fuel. I even took the filter off and checked and there was no fuel u put more fuel and it burned it again. How can i fix this problem?

Did you check the fuel pump relay ? The relay gets power from a fuse and also from the PCM relay. The computer grounds the relay to turn it on for 3 seconds when you turn the key on, then only after the computer "sees" RPM or oil pressure.
let vechicle sit for a while could be flooded fuel injectors leaking.when fuel injectors become dirty clogged they will leak when you turn off the engine.see if engine restart if its sits while.if car still dont crank check for spark.no spark could be faulty ignition module or crankshaft position sensor and camshaft sensor.have vechicle code scan first before buying new parts.meant to say bad engine coolant temperature sensor will cause no start hot engine and clogged air filter.
fuel starvation ie blocked filter /blocked pipe / as no fuel is reaching the cylinders BUT FUEL IN INTACE AND STARTS BUT WONT RUN THIS IS BECAUSE THE FUEL BURNS AND STARTS THE ENGINE THEN STALLS AS NO FUEL CHECK ALL FUEL FILTERS AND FUEL LINE FIRST CHEAPEST OPTION
Assuming you don't have an engine light on,the first thing i would try would be changing the air filter. Then the fuel filter. When the fuel filter is plugged , or partly plugged, the pump will try to overcompensate and it will flood, and burn too much gas. If not that, then there will be a problem witht he emissions system, fuel system or electrical system. But the above is where you should start.
Battery might seem fine on a routine check, but the crancking amp power is not there anymore, seems that your alternator is not charging it anymore, have the alternator checked and replaced if needed, the battery might need replacing too.
Fuel filter has nothing to do with the car turning over. It may prevent the car from starting. Do the engine turn over or try to crank or start. If the car is turning over but will not start it could be fuel related. Is the battery fully charged? if not charge it. Spray some starting fluid in the breather for 3 seconds to see if its fuel related. If the car starts and goes dead it is fuel related. Do this a couple of time and you should get the same results. If it does not start it will be electrical. Good Luck!!!
verify condition by spraying some starter fuel in it.it should start and die if its a fuel problem.
if it still does nothing start checking any and all fuses.if all the fuses are good take out a spark plug and verify no spark.
if no spark check the ignition module.
it might be able to have it checked at autozone for free.but you will have to remove it.
