fuel pump and the engine starts but dies..few minutes..fuel system

Customer Question

I replaced the fuel pump and the engine starts but dies right away is the replacement pump to weak? Do I need to swap to the old pump again and check if it will start? I swapped pumps trying to diagnose a problem that when under a load in drive the engine would stutter and die but it would idle fin for a few minutes so after checking the entire fuel system and ignition system I replaced the pump and now it dies right away.

When you said you've check the complete fuel system, is that means that the injectors are been check individually?

If not, do the following.

Check the fuel pressure of the fuel line.
if the pressure is good, then there is some issue on the injector.
