it will suddenly die while driving it. it will turn over but will not start with the starter. i can push it to a start. it pops right off and runs great until the next episode. it has a manual transmission. i was told it needed a new fuel pump so i had one put in but it still does it. there is no rhime or reason when it will die. sometimes will run great for a month and then suddenly die. the next time it will happen every day. when i took it to 2 different mechanics they say they can't fix it because it runs great for them. i even left it 2 weeks with one mechanic who said he drove it everyday with no problem. they say i need to put on new parts until they find out what is causing it. one wants to put on another fuel pump. the other a new main computer. this sounds like a way to rip me off.

My daughter had a different car that did this. It was the distributor.

Well, same car and exactly the same problem I even replaced the fuel filter as you did and it still dies while driving:( Did you buy a new car ? if not I'd like to hear what the solution was:)

more than likely its a crankshaft position sensor had repaired few accents with this problem.The car will turn over guddo but wont fire.If it was a prob with ur fuel pump she wudnt run at all or run very badly. you could try removing it and giving it a clean with wd40
