The car will turn over but it is not firing for some reason....we have changed the IMS & the coil pack and put a new starter on it...it started dying going down the road and I would have to pull over and start it back... & it got harder and harder to start til it would not start at all.....

    the pump could running but there might not be enough pressure I would check the fuel filter and also check injector pulse to see if your injectors are working
