Driving 70mph...suddenly car seems like it is not getting fuel. Every time I touch the gas pedal it slows down more. Coasted to stop, engine died. Will restart but, only for a seconds. Throwing MAP sensor code.

at first the car would have trouble starting now it won't start at all
car doesn't start (quite often) the first time. I have to restart it. I give it a little gas when it seems like its not going to start. I was told not to do that. I was to hold key a tad longer.

Would stall for no reason, could be a day a few hours before it stalls. Changed the fuel filter and recieved a complete tune up, the car drives better but still stalls a takes a while to start up.
Car was stalling out , even while driving down the road, which was dangerous and scary. For a while it would restart right away. About two weeks after the stalling started the car stalled while driving , managed to get off the road and it would not restart. The Mass Air Flow sensor , Camshaft and crankshaft position sensor

I think my engine is a 3.8 liter V6... Anyway there was a mystery stall problem while drinving through the mountains of Penn on the way to NYC a chevy dealer ran a diagnosis could not find anything but replaced the fuel sensor... This worked for about 100 miles when it stalled again and a few times more before it made it to NYC... No codes thrown... The car finally died on 8th avenue and 30th street in Manhattan.. It was towed to a garage the fuel pump and fuel filter were replaced.. Now the car runs fine...

The fuel pump was bad and I bought a new one at a junk yard for $37.50. It was easy to change myself because you DO NOT need to drop the fuel tank. It can be accessed through the backseat center counsel that goes into the trunk. Just open that up and lift the trunk carpet. The access plate can be removed and it is right there. Google it and you will see a lot of YouTube videos showing you how to do in yourself.

Was running fine. Tried to start next morning for work and nothing. No crank. All lights came on inside car, head lights bright, radio working but no crank. I'm a girl who know very little about car engines (yawn) it's been sitting for 4 days now. Been researching on Internet (yawn x2) on what the problem could be? Could be this? Could be that? Good grief ... so walking to work.. Not Great! Anybody got an idea that's more than 92% sure? Thanks..
