Died while driving. Towed to a repair shop and mechanic stated fuel pump needs to be replaced.
My started hesitating then it stalled. It would start up again only to stall right away. My mechanic suspected and electrical problem as they do occur on this model but the electricals were fine. The fuel pump was silent when trying to start the car and there was no gas in the fuel line. Had to replace the pump.
