Thanks, that's what I figured. It's my ******-in-laws car and she had it in the shop. They told her that it is expensive to change it if that is what's wrong with it. It was running real rough and stalled out then it would not start for her. Someone tried to help her with it, they thought that it needed gas. They put some in it and it started and ran for a little bit, then did it all over again. She had it towed to the shop. When they tried it out, it ran fine for them, no problems with it. Does this sound like the fuel pump could be the problem?

Have the fuel pressure checked and monitored with a fuel pressure tester this will finger the fuel pump as the culprit
