Help Needed. Starting problems, runs for a second and shuts off.

Have a 1988 260e, its in great shape, but having trouble keeping the car running. It will start, run a few seconds and shut off. I can keep it running with carb cleaner, changed fuel filter and fuel pumps are working.

Any suggestions?

when you say the pump works, did you jump it directly or you can hear it run with the key on? if you jumped it directly, and it runs while energized, I would look at the relay next.
