My car starts fine and idles fine but it keeps dying as I drive. I have changed the spark plugs and was wondering if it could still be a plug problem or if it might be the fuel pump. Im not sure what else to try and want to make sure absolutley that it is the pump before I change it as it is a pricey part and a pain to replace on this model.

Do you
have the same problem?

The first thing I would check would be the fuel pump pressure. Check to see if it is producing pressure within the manufacturer's specs. If you need directions, there is a video and directions on our homepage under the DIY section.

Let me know what you find.
