please help .....
I dont know if the situation you just describe
is similar to what i've expirience ,let me dicribe
mine. Just like you my car was running perfect
the temperature at the time is arround 85 degree
i remember driving the car for about an houror so its not a stop and go situation but one of those
spirited driving that i do every now and then. i stop for gas after i fill up all the motor was doing was cranking but no start. I check my battery and ignition and it turn out ok . Next i check my fuel pump for fuel delivery i notice my fuel pump is not working i had the car towed to the dealer it turn out that the fuel pump is ok but the culprit is a relay they call it main relay
my fuel pump relay is geting power from the main relay. a $14 relay. any way this relay is located
on the right side fire wall just behind the coolant reservoir. you have to remove a plastic cover to access it. there will be three relay there the one you want to check is the white one.
