Default update on 87 CRX HF issue

we replaced the spark plugs, the wires, the distributor cap, the rotor, and
are about to replace the fuel filter. the car WOULD start and run when we
were sprayin carb cleaner directly into the carb. as soon as we let off
though, about 3 seconds later it would die. clearly it isnt getting fuel. i
put HEET in there to remove any trace of water in the gas line. when the car
was on, the smoke that came out the exhaust was grey. my friends think it
may be the pump or the filter. what i need to know is WHERE is the pump and
filter located? someone had pointed me to an online manual, but alas i found
no 87 CRX in there.. only 86 and 88. email me at
agentsmith2011@UNDIES.austin.rr.com (remove undies) if youve got a good
link. thanks a bunch for the advice guys

I suggest that you replace the fuel filter. If that does not fix the
problem, you should consider replacing the fuel pump and related relays.
You should be able to buy a repair manual at almost any auto parts store.
It should tell you where the fuel pump is located. Someone recently
mentioned that he purchased some bad gas that had lots of water or dirt in
it--the startup problems did not go away until he used up the bad tank of
gas--is dirty gas a problem in your area?? That same person replaced all
kinds of things before he figured out the true cause of the problem.

in my daewoo, dirty gas has never been an issue. theres a few shells and
texacos that have the best gas in town located right next to me. im gonna
add some fresher gas later and see if itll kick on. if not, ive got a new
fuel filter im about to throw in there tomorrow, or next weekend. either
way, thats where im gonna start. everything else is a little dirty, but
looks to b e in good condition. ill give it a good cleaning in a few weeks
when i get paid again. thank god the fuel pump is only ~50 for a good one
here. thanks for the advice all. if anyone has any other suggestions, please
enlighten me ^_^
