engine stalled in middle on intersection, coasted into nearby parking lot, it cranks and has spark but won't start. Due to erratic fuel gauge, thought it was out of gasoline, but put couple gallons into it, and still would not start, even though it cranked great. Haven't fixed it yet,

When attempting to accelerate, car would feel as if it shutting down. Pulled over and car shut down. Attempted to start but only would crank.

Ran out of gas because sensor fluctuations. Used a gas can (2gallon) four times and filled car up. Car wouldn't crank over, so speculation is either fuel filter of fuel pump. Hoping it's only the fuel filter lol

Same issue, car was running fine, I did notice that it would hestitate once every 3 months but thought it was winter and a rough cold start idle. Then spring came and it just died.
