We just purchased the vehicle and it ran great for about 2 weeks and then we started having trouble with the car. It frequently stalls on me. Sometimes after a few miles sometimes after about ten miles. Once it stalls it won't start right away. If I wait for 5 to 15 min. Then it starts back up again. On occation it has accelerated to about 2100rpms and when I put it in gear it died on me. The car has only had one previouse owner and it has very low mileage. The lady that owned the vehicle was an elderly lady so I believe it wasn't really driven long distances mainly town driving. I have changed the fuel filter and it still does it. When the vehicle is running it runs great. No miss fires or hesitation. At first I thought it was a fuel problem but you can still hear the fuel pump come on and off when I turn the ignition on. If you need any further information please let me know. There are no engine light coming on in the dash
thanks.
