sometimes my car sputters (like it may die), sometimes it drives fine. it is hit or miss. it tends to be ok with short trips, but, sputters on longer ones. after driving it more than usual the other day, it was sputtering. when i stepped on the gas to drive off of my street it died. (this is the first time it actually died). it shut off, power out...had to restart with the key. at first it would not restart...only sputtered. and then when it would start, when i would step on the gas to move it...it would die again, and i'd have to restart it. it's at the mechanics now. he said he took it for a test drive and it didn't do anything. (like i said, it's hit or miss). so, now he is guessing at what it could be, and has so far come up with mass airflow sensor, fuel line/fuel pump, coils, and several other things. i need to know the actual part that needs replaced, i cannot afford to pay for multiple maybes. has this happened to anyone else...and if you know anything that could help, it would be much appreciated. he also said that he ran it for codes, but, nothing came up.
