Sounds to me like the fuel pump is worn out. They DO wear out. And even though they seem to be working, the brushes in the electric fuel pump may not be contacting all the commutator, thus making the pump weak. It may start the motor but can't maintain normal running pressure (27-35psi). Have you run the car out of gas shortly before this problem surfaced? If you have then it's your fuel pump. It was damaged when the tank ran dry. Even though the pump may seem to be working, it's still badly damaged and needs to be replaced.
Just as Matmenzies has stated, get a fuel pressure gauge and test the pressure. I'd start with a complete check of all your vacuum lines. Check for cracks on the vacuum hose that connects to fuel pressure regulator on the fuel rail. Also, if you can, get a hand operated vacuum pump to check the regulator. If you can place a vacuum on the regulator and it holds, I'd say move on the fuel pump and check it.
BTW, if the fuel filter has been changed, you may want to check to see if it was installed backwards! Some fuel filters are valved and will cause symptoms like this. However, this is an immediately noticeable mistake and you haven't provided enough info for me to say more. I'd pull it and check that it has any flow at all. You could have sucked in a big dirt ball and blown it right into the new filter, effectively stopping fuel flow. Then I'd blow out the fuel lines, just to be sure.
Start with these 2 things and post what you find. We'll go from there.

Defenitely fuel related, maybe fuel regulator on the injection rail, you see when turning over there is very little vacumme (that is what the regulators run off) once started they run soley off vacume to ajust the fuel pressure? maybe a huge vacume leak somewhere, best bet is to start with the fuel pressure, get an inline manual pressure guage and crank the engine, you should have at least 35psi fuel pressure, when it starts what hapens to the fule pressure, if it drops off at same rate car is stalling, there is your problem, if not then maybe look more towards major vacumme leak, hope i have been of some assistance

MY 1992 toyota celica acted like it was running out of gas and just quite and will not run agian. I have checked the fuel pump and the plugs are fireing. What else could be wrong?


could be alot of different things. try disconnecting the fuel line at the motor to see if you have fuel when the key is turned on. (put open end of line in a bottle preferrably clear to inspect for debris or water) If not replace fuel filter. could be a clogged catalytic converter, could be clogged injectors (if when you remove the fuel line at the motor there is fuel coming out when ignition is turned on) could be air filter is clogged. You can get rid of most of these without disconnecting anything by getting a can of choke and carb cleaner. Use it like you would starter fluid. (dont use starter fluid as it may lock up your motor) disconnect air filter and spray about a 2 second full spray into the air filter hose. have someone try to start the car. If it starts then you know its a fuel delivery problem and narrows it down for you.
