Not that I know of, I always suggest people take it in on the ground sof it has to be relearnt afterwords and youd end up towing it in to the dealership.

Beings as how it won't run over a few minutes now, its either tow it now or tow it later then. So might as well try to install the cps and save that amount from the dealer I guess.

No not entirely sure its the cps but symptoms point toward it.
Have no way of checking fuel pressure and codes. Car won't run long enough to get to Auto Zone to check codes. Have ordered and received the new cps so am going to install anyway. Thanks for your replys.
