Q: Starts but stalls immediately

asked by on

Ok so I just installed a fuel pump and new fuel filter into my car before it would just make this fluttering sound. (Not clicking - the battery and spark plugs are brand new) plus I put gas straight into my carburetor and it started immedielty but as for where it stands now whenever I start it it starts and stalls right away. The engine sounds beautiful click click vroomm but it just stops? Wondering why.

My car has 150200 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
