Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

In order for the engine to start and stay running you need good spark to the spark plugs, injector pulse, proper fuel pressure (32 to 37 PS and good compression. In order to be able to begin to help you you need to check each one of these thing and determine which one you are lacking and post back with the results and we can work from there to determine the cause.
