Over a week ago she just cut off in traffic. She would start but cut off with a loud bang(like a gunshot). I had to tow her home and she set in the driveway for about a week and a half. On 3/19/2012 the fuel pump was replaced and she started up. I was glad if that but didn't try to drive her. I wish that I had, when in park you could give it gas and the engine would rave up. But when in drive or reverse I had to push the gas pedal all the way to the floor and she would not move at all. What is the problem.

    Changed the fuel filter before the fuel pump was changed. Just got the catalytic converter fixed in October of last year with a whole new exhaust system. Trans mission is what i'm checking now to see if I needed trans mission fluid. Cause it still goes into gear. I have to also check to see if all the wires were hooked back up when ther fuel pump was changed. Could there be something else that is missing if it's not the transmission?

    if u just replaced the pump u may need to replace the filter (again) the old pump may have left some sediment in it and that could be the problem

    I will have to change that first to make sure that is not the problem. I even checked to codes on the care and I got a 12 repeatedly so that lets me know everything is normal. My father said that it might not be reading the overdrive and I will have to disconnect it to see if that will work but it might not be that. I feel like it could be the filter that wasn't changed when changing the fuel pump. If I continue to have that same problem after the filter is changed then I know that it is something else.
