It seems that the car is not getting fuel. It died on the expressway. I changed the fuel filter. It ran for one day. Died again. It attempts to start but will not. I changed the fuel filter again. No luck. Please help. Thank you!

Hello, if you think it is a fuel issue, use a gage and check fuel pressure. Key on engine off, can you hear the pump run for a second or two?

You can also get some codes by cycling the ignition switch. You just cycle the key till the dash lites come on, no further. On--off, on--off, on, then the check engine lite starts flashing, you count the flashes to get the codes.

Okay, I just tried the ignition on/off, on/off, on. And the check engine light was on for 1 second and then shut off. No blinks. Does that mean anything?

Did you try checking for codes? There is a fuel pump relay in the power distribution center under the hood, you can pull the relay, use a testlite, have helper crank the engine, while you check for two hot terminals. There may be a diagram on the relay, the voltage for the switch/load side of relay, hot all the time. The voltage for the control/coil side of relay, is hot with engine cranking.
