So first, I had my oil changed at meineke yesterday. I've never been there before but I couldn't get in with my mechanic so I just figured I'd do it quickly. Things were fine after that, I drove to work and when I got off work 7 hours later I started the car and it went into drive; drove maybe 10 feet forward and appeared to stall out. Which I thought was odd since I didn't fill the tank(stalling is occasional due to charcoal cap which was already addressed and a common problem). When car stalled, I let it sit a minute and turned the key; it just made the starting crank sound like it couldn't turn over so I held it past for 15 seconds, did that a few times and nothing happened. A friend came to try to jump me since battery light was on, nothing happened since battery was tested and good. AAA came and towed it, my mechanic looked at the car(very trusted guy we've been using for 6 years). He said fuel pump was bad. He changed the pump and started the car, now all lights on the dash are on. He is keeping the car to look more into after the long weekend to find the problem. Does anyone have any idea what this may be or have any of you with the jeep patriot experienced this exact problem after changing a fuel pump? Thanks in advance for any input and advice- just trying to figure out what I'm getting into cost wise.
My car is a 2007 Jeep Patriot 2.4L automatic. 119,300 miles.
repairs done;
I've had the car two years(my first car, I'm 19). Summer of 2015 I had alternator replaced. December 2016 I needed upper tie rods replaced. Other than that I can't think of any problems fixed, always passed inspections, oil changes always done timely. It's always been a good car, I just can't figure out what it could possibly be.

It came up with crank position sensor fault so I replaced it it then come up with timing Chane fault so I replaced the timing chain and now it is coming up with throttle body fault but it seems fine it's like the computer is bad and making the car run really bad why might this be ?? It happens all the time and doesn't go away

How heavy of a trailer can my jeep tow?

Where is the fuse box on my 2007 Jeep patriot?

Every time I shut off the car and exit, i hear a faint clicking noise. what is it?

Loud Clicking and popping from my front suspension. It starts when I first take off and then stops after 5 mins. We just moved to a area that has a lot of speed bumps. So the sound started after a few weeks.Suspension seems to be working but when I go over a speed bump or pothole and hit the breaks at the same time it feels like I am hydroplane, like the breaks lock up. Breaks are new and have been checked already with no concern.

Replaced PCM 6 months ago. Replaced air filter recently. Shaking only occurs when stopped at lights or stops otherwise runs fine.

no engine codes. the lights will shut off then come back on
