Thanks for the accurate description....makes it easier to diagnose . One of two things it is....either a fuel pump OVER-working....highly unlikely...or your fuel pressure regulator.......sounds like you pressure reg tho with what you described......located on top of the motor on the fuel rail...

Sounds like a cracked head. Or possibly a bad head gasket.
Either one of these would explain water coming out of tailpipe.

The car wont stay running when in the run possion


OK lets start with this..

I am guessing that when you say possion you are meaning you gear selector and when you put it in say drive.

If that is the case.....

Your problem is most likely the fuel pump relay or fuel pump itself.
Start with checking, or have it checked, the fuel pressure at the fuel rail.

If the pressure is low then a fuel pump can be suspect. There are then other test which have to be performed to see where the exact problem is.

clogged injectors you need to put cleaner in the fuel to help get dirt and grit out of them some times (every 3 months).
I am assuming you are saying it will turn over but not fire and run when cold?
