Loss of power to the pump. Have not yet found the fault.

Engine will turn over but not start. My trusted mechanic fears it is the fuel pump and estimates about $800 to replace with a quality new one. He warns of using a low cost or used fuel pump, and personally wont install one, as it will only need to be replaced again within a year or two. Vehicle is being towed to his shop this afternoon so I will keep you updated!
second time replacing it.

Same issue with stalls and no starts. Replace fuel filter and O2 sensor. Haven't tried fuel pump or Exhaust Gas Return.
