One morning the car wouldn't start, it would just turn over. My (master) mechanic found the problem pretty quick...bad fuel pump, easy find. *BUT* since the tank is behind the rear seat it was $500-600 labor to drop the tank and fix. This happened 2012 thereabouts. I should have also replaced the fuel gauge sending unit but I didn't feel like shelling out another $250 for the part. Sigh- now I find the sending unit fails the OBD portion of the smog test and I can't get my Kalifornia tags - even though it passes the emissions portion of the test. The topper is I make too much money to qualify for repair assistance by about 2 dollars. Another sigh.
my car would turn over but it would stall out.
