My engine cuts off while slowing down after the car is accelarating when I pump the gas there is no response the car acts as if it is not getting any gas. But when the car is in idle the car runs without any missing or any signs of fuel pump problems what could cause the car to cut off or lose gas when slowing down.
Do you
have the same problem?

It could be the fuel pump. However, there are other sensors that can cause this. Has the check engine light come on?

Let me know.
