Question about 1992 Toyota Celica

Car starts good but has rough idle and dies in a few seconds.

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 st1\:*{behavior:url(#ieooui) } /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} I have a 91 Pontiac turbo model. 3.1L It turns over and starts great. Most of the time it dies almost immediately but if I hold the gas pedal down just a bit and just right it will rough idle for a min. Here is what I have replaced. Fuel pump, fuel pickup filter, fuel filter, spark plugs, wires, two vacuum lines, one bad coil pack (tested open on secondary), and the ignition module, Currently it is now fuel fouling the spark plugs. And I am still having the same start and die issue. If you could help let me know.
Thanks

My 1995 Pontiac Bonneville will turn over and start but always dies. Already replaced fuel filter and the fuel pump seems to be working but the car will not stay started. Checked the gas release on fuel...


crank position sensor...if the engine will start and run for a second or two then it dies. If, however, you can press and hold the gas pedal slightly and keep the engine going, then I would suspect the IAC-idle air control valve. This can be cleaned with spray carb cleaner.

Hi:
to help figure out what is going on with your car, the first thing to do is get the code downloaded to see what the cause is. A local auto parts store, such as auto zone, can download your codes and get you in the ballpark as to what failed. If they have a parts recommendation, give it a shot...

Car turns over great will not start


IT DEFFO SOUNDS LIKE LACK OF FUEL, BUT FOR IT NOT TO RUN AT ALL UNLESS THROTTLE IS FULLY OPEN DOESN'T SOUND LIKE AN INJECTOR, MORE LIKE NO FUEL AT ALL, LIKE THE PUMP IS KNACKERED. PULL OUT AN INJECTOR, PUT IT IN A GLASS JAR, THEN TRY AND START IT, IT SHOULD GIVE A BIG POWERFUL SQUIRT OF FUEL, TRY ALL THE INJECTORS ONE AT A TIME, BECAUSE ITS QUITE RARE FOR ALL THE INJECTORS TO GO AT TE SAME TIME

The fuel pump ground wire is loose. If you have a loose parking brake pedal or recently had it worked on, check the black and yellow wire that's on one of the screws that holds the Pk. brake assembly. It's hard to find, but it's up there. I guess it could be elsewhwere on the ground wire between the fuel pump and the grounding point by the Pk. brake.
