1993 Ford Festiva Engine won't stay running

Ok so i have a 93 Ford Festiva that won't start. well it will turn over and fire has plenty of spark but will only run for about 3-4 seconds before it sputters and dies. Also if you press the gas to keep it running it will shut off right then and there. if you try and hold the gas when starting it it will start rev high and cut out no sputtering.  the fuel pump is pumping and the filter is fine. i'm not sure where to look now. Any advise

Just a little suggestion. IF this is a 1993 it is fuel injected.the car starts and runs for a few seconds and then dies. You are on the right track by checking the spark and fuel delivery. If you have both of these when it dies i would check injector pulse. the use of a noid light would be the quickes method.They can be purched at the parts house for pretty cheep.If you have no injector pulse then it cuts the fuel off to the engine.Replace the ignition module (contols spark and injector pulse) i have ran across a few that will lose only one of the outputs, insted of both of them. Now if you have fuel and fire, i would check to see if the cat. converter is damaged or cloged thus restricting the exhaust and stalling the engine. Hope this helpes.

From your Description, I Suggest you; 1- Check for Current/Voltage (10.5 VDC Minimum) to the Carburetor Shut Off Solenoid. If the Carburetor Shut Off Solenoid has Current, then Remove the Carburetor Solenoid and Go to the Hardware Store. Purchase a Bolt of the Same Diameter and Threads. It Needs to be 1/2" to 3/4" Long. Put this Bolt in Place of the Solenoid. If this Corrects the Engine Problem, then Replace the Solenoid. ***NOTE: THIS IS FOR CHECKING THE SOLENOID ONLY I NEVER SUGGEST YOU OPERATE THE ENGINE WITH THE SOLENOID OUT OF THE CARBURETOR EXCEPT FOR TESTING PURPOSES*** Sometimes the Plunger is Moving, Just Not Far Enough to Allow the Gas to Enter the Jets. 2- Even though the Carburetor Looks Clean, the Internal Passages May be Restricted with Varnish that Gas Causes to Build Up over Time. I Suggest you Make Sure the Gas is Free Flowing to the Carburetor Inlet Port. If the Gas is Free Flowing to the Inlet Port, then **Remove, Disassemble and Soak the Carburetor Overnight in Carburetor Cleaner (I Use Gunk). I have Found that Most People can Use a Breakdown/IPL and Disassemble the Carburetor Enough for Proper Cleaning. You Only have to Remove the Bowl (if Applicable), Float Pin (if Applicable), Float (if Applicable) and Needle Valve and Any Adjustment Screws that Go Into the Carburetor Body. The Welch Plugs Do Not have to be Removed. Then Soak the Carburetor Body and Parts in a 1 Gallon Can of Gunk Carburetor Cleaner Overnight. The Can has a Parts Tray Inside it for the Small Parts. Once the Carburetor and Parts are in the Cleaner, you can Replace the Lid for Safety and to Prevent Accidental Spillage. Then Blow Out the Passages with Compressed Air. Install New Parts if Required.** Send me the Model and Type or Spec Numbers Off the Engine, Please. With these I can Locate the Proper Manual and Better Assist you. The Model Numbers May be Stamped Into the Blower Housing (metal engine cover) Above the Spark Plug. If you Hit a Snag or this Does Not Correct the Problem, I am Here if You Require More Assistance. Hope this Helps. Let me Know What Happens, Please. May the All Mighty Bless You and Yours. Thanks

Check the timing belt. The belt can break and it will turn over with the starter but won't fire.
