93 festiva still won't run HELP

So its me again with the festiva. i forgot to mention in my last post to mention that my car was fuel injected so i don't have the carborator. but i have alittle more info on it. one of the things is we took out the back seat to find the fuel pump and there was gas on the top of the tank. like it was leaking the other is that we hooked up a pressure gauge to the fuel line in between the fuel filter and the fuel injector pressure regulator and when we start the car we have about 36 to 38 psi but it doesn't stay there is dropps very quickly and the car still sputters and dies. we have taken out the injectors and cleaned them the best we could and put in new o rings along with the spark plug wires and plugs. I'm looking at taking it some where but if you have some thing please let me know. it woul save me some mula. oh and it is 1.3 Lt. 4 cyl.

'92 Ford Festiva stalls when overheats

it sounds like your radiator fan is not working. once your engine reaches a certan temp. the fan should come on to cool it down. also might be the thermostat is not opening. it is not good for the motor at all to over heat and stall. you could ruin your engine. i would change thermostat first and then run it till it starts getting hot to see if the fan kicks on. if it doesn't, it could be the coolant sensor or the fan itself. good luck.

You may need to look for a vacuum leak or double check your timing advance/****** is operating correctly.Use a can of carburettor cleaner lightly sprayed around suspect areas,do with engine running and if there is a leak it will stop the engine running.As far as the fuel system goes crimp the fuel return line with appropriate tool so you dont damage it and see if it improves.If it does you do have a fuel problem with the pump or the pressure relief valve

Ford festiva 93 model wa

i gather that you are keeping the transmision selector handle in the Drive position.
qturn the car around and go up the hill again but this time set the selector on 2 and see if it works better.
then try it in drive position again but at a slow speed,,the trans should stay in a lower gear and pull easily.
This will tell you if the trans is shifting properly or not.

And no i doubt very much if it is the filter since you dont mention any problems on a level roadbed.
