On my way home I noticed my car starting to jerk a bit, it did it twice then just cut off on my while on the freeway. I get it to the side and try to start it but nothing. So I head to the gas station and buy a can of starter fluid and bam it starts after a couple of sprays. I make it home and the the next day I start it just to see if the problem still there and it is the engin dies a few minutes later. I hear the fuel pump when I turn the key to power. I went under the hood and check the part that spits out gas near the injectors if you push it in and gas shot out. I know thats good now I am at a stand still. The battery is new the engin turns over but does not sounds like its trying to catch and start. Could it be electrical of something else. Any ideals cause i'm stumped on this one. If you have time drop me a line. Gotta wah my hands cause now I smell like gas.

Fuel pump or fuel filter would be my guess. How long since you changed plugs and wires?

listen closely to the pump...is it a high pitched buzz or a low growling sound??? could be on its way out not providing enough pressure...or it may be intermittant problem right now! need to check fuel press..

this is so odd, I gave up on trying to figuar it out and took it to a shop and the guy just cleaned sensors and plugs then it started. It was not getting any spark. Now it runs better, better fuel mileage. Ain't that something
