I was stopped at a red light and when I went to go when it turned green the car just quit. I could not get it started. It had to be pushed to a nearby parking lot and then towed home. The tow truck man said I need a battery. Some say it may be my fuel pump. It sounds like it wants to start but will not turn over.

Do you
have the same problem?

Some say?

A fuel pressure test with a gauge will verify fuel pump operation.

Does it have power? Does it crank?
