Hard start issue, won't stay running

Asked by RitchCarl Feb 25, 2020 at 05:10 PM about the 2005 Chevrolet Equinox

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2005 checy equinox that died at a stop light and
was towed home as it refused to start back up.
I hear the fuel pump and relay kick on. I have changed the
MAF sensor,  cam and crank shaft sensors,  ignitjon switch,  
battery,  alternator, and cleaned the injectors. It will only
turn over if I use starter fluid, then I use the gas pedal and
get zero response in the rpms and it dies shortly after. Hard
starts and chugs then dies within 20 seconds. What am I
missing here?
