confused help with my 95 t-bird

My thunderbird will crank over and start but will only run for a few seconds.If you press the gas pedal at all it will die.If you try to hold down the gas pedal and try to start it will just crank over and never fire.I have replaced the MAF,TPS,crank sensor and fuel filter.I have checked the cam sensor as well and it ohmed at .40.Fuel pressure at the rail engine not running is 38pd.When it runs for the short time fuel pressure is 28pd.It has 70k miles on it.The service engine soon light is not on.any help would be appreciated.

Try the idle air control valve.

Check vacume lines if it starts and dies shortly after you may have a major air leak. If its not cranking then check the starter.

Re: help with my 95 t-bird

First off thanks guys.the IAC is good and i have replaced quite a few vacuum lines.I did run some more tests it has a good spark,good fuel pressure(38pd./WEO). I unplugged an injector and plugged in a noid light and it light up bright and quickly went very dim as the car was dying. Now just trying to find the reason for the drop in voltage to the injector.Any Ideas would be appreciated.

Are you having to charge the bat after each use? Seems like something is drawing all the power.

Weird. This is a wild stab in the dark: disconnect the alternator and see if it will run.
