Help me out guys. My car fires right up when I turn the key, but dies immeditately. It climbs to 1000rpm and dies. Very similar to what happens when you pull the fuse to the fuel pump. It seems to be getting fuel, I even got a small back fire after a few tries to start it. I did try cranking with the fuel pump unplugged in case it was flooded. I had a pinhole in the upper radiator hose this morning. No overheat, but it steamed the engine compartment. I'm sure it's related, but where should I look? CAS? The car ran fine after I fixed the leak half way to work. It's been sitting for about 6 hrs.
