Default My 1990 honda civic DX hatch has a fuel problem, i think?

you see, i had a puttering problem and recently the car just stopped working all together, i check many things, changed the fuel pump, the spark plugs, the wires, the fuel filter, and nothing, so i then pulled the fuel injectors, and tested them, they are working just fine, but it seems that gas may not be getting into the motor, i came to this conclusion by means of spraying some carb cleaner down the throttle body, and the car starts for a second...any ideas, id love some help on this one

maybe the main fuel relay has failed, can you hear the pump run? if not try replacing the relay and it should start. unless it is a timing or ignition problem...?

I would check for spark and fuel.. If there's no spark, then it's your dist. If it have no fuel then it's your main fuel relay.. Since you already change the fuel pump.. Disconnect the fuel line where it connectto the throttle body and crank the motor. see if there's any fuel come out.. Good Luck..
