Intermittent problem with starting car. Had pressure check on pump. Was advised pressure was low & replaced pump.
The car cut off while trying to pull out of parking spot. I was told by a friend to change the fuel filter and check the air filter to see if it was clogged. The car had been sitting in a garage for 4 years . I had been driving the car for 6 months without any problems until this happened. I've changed the oil twice. The check engine light is on. It says engine service soon.
