Car was having ruff starts then eventually would not start at all Replaced fuel filter car ran perfect Turned out the filter was original from 2004
Going up hills it will kick out of first fine but when it whats to go down it stalls in an out we have to pump the gas it to get it moving until we reach flat surface
I have replaced the fuel pump 3 times in 80000 miles.
this happened to my moms car that im working on and i changed the pump and filter replaced the old faulty plug for the fuel pump to modernize it to work with the new pump and still it will try to start but just crank crank crank nothing seems to have solved it and there is over $400 into parts at this point and still nothing
