My wife bought this car 1995 sportage about 18 months ago has always ran great and reliable, the the small payment ended no start or run.

1995 Kia sportage 2.0 DOHC 174,000 miles OBD I computer.
Start with starting fluid runs til warmed up and dies.

Tuned up plugs wires filters about 10,000 miles back when we got it.
I have Checked/tested:
Wiring
Grounds
12v @ coils
has spark when cranking
Compression 143-148
timimg

Replaced
fuel pump/ECU relays
temp sensors
Idle air control
throttle position sensor
fuel pump/pressure regulator/filter
Timing belt bearings tensioner water pump and crank/cam seals (all in 1 kit)
Mass air sensor
02 sensor
cam position sensor
crank position sensor.

It will start with shot of starting fluid and runs great. Dies about the time it is warmed up and should be switching to closed loop.
Plugs looked white in color probably ok but it was running lean.
Its been about 2-3 months since we can use the Little car,

Anybody have the same or similar problems I appreciate any help.

Hows the fuel pulsation damper look? Its mounted on the end of the fuel rail. There is also a fuel cut solenoid, appears to be mounted back in rear of underchassis by the fuel tank. Just some things to consider.
