the car drives well for 5 , 10 or even 15 minutes then on the freeway the speed starts lowering the gas pedal doesn't do anything. I changed the fuel pump, had spark plugs, and still not working properly
at highway speed engine dies... no power, then power comes back in 5 to ten seconds or as much as 20 seconds... I have had to tow the car 3 times in the last month. I try to keep the fuel level at least one third full to protect the fuel pump. Gotta get it fixed... I am paying for A car that I cant trust. I put in New plugs and Air filter in less than one week after buying the car. just for fun Gapped correctly and with anti seize compound.
