Why will my car crank but won't start?

(2001 Subaru Outback)
Cranks but won't start, fuel filter is not clogged, replaced fuel pump & made sure it pumped (hose to a bottle) & it works. Seems to cycle fuel back into the tank as barely any fuel makes it to the fuel filter. Poured fuel into the air intake & it started & ran until is was all used up (10 seconds or so). Any ideas?
What seems to make the problem better or worse? NA
How long have you had this problem? 1 week

Hello,
If you are pumping fuel, but none is making it to the fuel filter, you probably have an obstruction in the fuel line. Maybe even a damaged/crimped fuel line.

Inspect your fuel lines from the filter to the fuel pump. You may need to disconnect the line from the pump and filter and run something through it to see if you can knock debris or buildup loose.
