Car will not start, most of the time, when it does it will shut off on you or wont start again. It is getting spark and there is lots of pressure in the fuel line. The inertia switch in the back is also ok. Any thoughts?

    ok, but you need to know the exact fuel pressure as it needs a certain value to run.

    Do you get spark at the time car wont start?
    If not it could be ignition system or sensor problem.

    It could be many things, unfortunately and without experiencing the problem first hand or being able to do some basic diagnostic tests its hard to say. It's best to start with the basics, is the engine mechanically sound, even compression, no vacuum leaks then verify fuel pressure and quality of ignition spark. There is a company that independent auto repair shops get their information from, this same information is available inexpensively for people that work on their own cars.. The information is year make and model specific, covering repair procedures, torque specifications, fluid capacities and specifications, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... Alldata is very easy to navigate http://bit.ly/AllData_Repair_Manuals_Online
