Default Please help legend wont start

I am new to the forum and was looking for help
I have a 1994 legend LS coupe with 225,000 mile on it
The car has been great til 2 days ago. I went home for lunch one day and the car drove fine. I went to start it up to go back to work it started and ran for about 2 seconds and then shut off. it turns over and sounds like it wants to start but it wont. I just had a tune up and new fuel filter done last month
Does anyone have an idea what the problem could be or where I should looking first start. also I am replacing the motor soon with a jdm motor and want to know if anyone else has done the same and have they have had any problems it the motor and where is a good place to order the motor from
thanks

it may be your main relay its under the dash on the drivers side it will need to be replaced or resoldered. I have a club member who replaced his motor with jdm motor and has han no problems as of yet and its going on 2 years and he drives the car everyday. you will have to use your usdm injectors.

did you check to see if its getting fire. if not do a compression check. got a 90 acura integra did the same thing. shot starting fluid up intake started right up and ran, try fuel regulator also.

your injectors are leaking replace the o rings. check the filter on the fir wall as well.
