Periodically while driving the engine would lose power, like it wasn’t getting fuel? Recently while idling in traffic it acted like it was going to stall. Shifted to park/neutral
And gave it some gas and it would return to normal. Doesn’t want to start but after a few attempts it finally cranks. Last time It turned over, started to stall, gave it some gas, reved the engine, it choked, sputtered and stalled. Hasn’t run since. Thought it might be the fuel filter/pump? don’t know where that is located or how to fix. The timing belt, water pump, battery, plugs, wires, rotor & cap replaced @ 120,000. Just turned 150,000 miles, maintenance light is on, but not the check engine light….any advice??

    TAKE A COMPRESSION TEST ON ALL THE CYLINDERS AND MAKE A COMPARISON ALL THE CYLINDERS SHOULD NOT BE 20% DIFFERENT FROM EACH OTHER, YOU MIGHT HAVE A WEAK CYLINDER.
