Several answers sound good and may help. Here is what I am thinking:

if the engine runs for only a minute, it probably not a sensor. That is not enough r time for the engine to get warm.

It is possible that it is the injectors, but not likely that they are all so plugged that the engine stalls after a minute. If they are that plugged, it probably wouldn't start well.

Answer these questions, then we can narrow in on this issue:

Is always the same amount of time before it stalls?

If you rev the engine a little, does it stall sooner?

You mentioned replacing the pump. Did you replace the in tank pick up filter?

And, as a follow up to that, you mentioned replacing the fuel filter. Was that the filter in the line, or the one in the tank? (I know a repeated question)

When you turn the key on, without starting the engine, do you hear the fuel pump hum for a few seconds, then stop?

Ok - that's where we'll start.

Check your grounds. I find many easy fixes by cleaning all the grounds around the engine bay. I would also check the ground at the fuel pump connector that wiring is prone to corrosion and breakage

SOURCE: SUBARU IMPREZA DONT RESTART .

Sounds like a sensor is breaking down under heat of engine.
Try the Crank sensor (under the alternator at front of engine with a 2 pin multiplug attached. Or the Cam sensor (more likely) placed behind the oil filler neck and looks the same as the crank sensor. Breakers should sell you these for approx £20 each.
If no joy let me know.

check you ecu. same problem happen to me in an izuzu rodeo. I let my fuel get to low and it sucked dirt into the filter and messed with that and it set off a code for the ecu and messed it up but if i had just replaced the ecu first i wouldnt have had to change the injectors or anything.

Possible dirty fuel injector which is most common. It can also be bad oxygen sensors, vacuum leak, or worst case a leak at the intake manifold.

Car won't stay running

I do not think all the fuel injectors are bad.
Do you have a steady fuel pressure and spark?
Check with a scanner to see what is wrong.

1995 Impreza will not start, no fuel pressure.

I think it is time for you to get a wiring diagram, so you know
what your working on,sort off a road map to get around your
fuel systems electrical circuits

Try a local repair shop & ask for a print out from ALLData,
Mitchell or whatever data base they have,hopefully someone
has that,otherwise they as lost as you are, but get paid to be

Car 1997 Subaru outback impreza died while driving. It has new spark plugs and wires, a new throttle position sensor, it is in need of an oil change but it's not horrible and it has a full tank of gas....

Try to start it with starting fluid. If it will run on it, then you will need to focus on what controls fuel delivery/timing... Pressure regulator, injectors. (was the filter replaced with the pump) MAF could be a factor. If starting fluid won't help, then you want to focus on the crank sensor as a possible culprit.

1997 mazda 626 won't start.

Are the plugs wet with fuel?
Check for spark. No spark? it may be the ignition module.

Plugs dry and spark present? No fuel?Spray a little starting fluid and see if it will run on that.
Then check pump fuses and for fuel pump noise.

1995 subaru impreza loses power sporadically, on occassion

the owner of the car should do to check the electrical system of the car.the owner of the car should be able to locate and check ignition system.Prepare the tools and equipment to be use in checking the ignition system.so that when the ignition system is checked it will function properly.Locate the ignition system ,the ignition switch ,the ignition coil ,the distributor assembly,the spark plug .checked corroded switch ,check ignition coil,check distributor assembly.the contact point gap,condenser.Check the high tension wires and terminals. check wires and connection ,check spark plug gap.observe all safety rules. and don't forget the battery,if the battery is low in electricity then you have to charge it. But if corroded then you have to clean it, but if worn out or malfunctioning then the battery should be replace.And all of these said parts of ignition system if there are worn out parts then replace them if corroded then clean them.If the owner cant do the job then it is advise that the owner should go to the car shop mechanic then the mechanic do the job done.

ok, first thing here is to check out the fuel distribution through out the engine. make sure that the fuel pump and filter are in good condition. replace both devices if found to be faulty or clogged.

I would also replace the air filter as well. this is a over looked problem spot in most cases.

once the fuel pump and filter have been changed, i would then inspect all injectors for there operational value. make sure the injection timing is correct and check the wires connected to each injector for worn housings and damaged wires as well.

replace any plugs and wires that appear to be worn or damaged. remove each plug and visibly inspect the head for fouled or oily look. replace any plug that is showing premature signs of ware.
