    The car won't start randomly. It tried to turn over and the car sputters before shutting off. I have to pump the gas to actually turn it over. It use to shut off while driving but i could get it started back after some time. I tried the fuel inductions cleanings and that helped for about 6 months but not it happened again and i think it's the pump. :-(

    well if its the fuel pump its one of those regular issues like when your starter goes

    so its relatively inexpensive compared to other issues like cracked head gaskets....

    i feel ya though, car repairs sucks shit, Itll be ok homie

    Sounds like you're having probs with both the fuel pump as well as the nozzles..

    Once you'll get it to a service, and it gets diagnosted, it'll be something along the lines of "Fuel injection feedback system does not operate properly." ~ with an insufficient amount of fuel regulated as it needs to be.

    the Nozzles?

    I take it tomorrow from them to run tests. I kept getting "check fuel cap" errors on my display but it comes and goes. So i figured it had something to do with the pump

    I hear the pump when it does start but it hasn't failed to start yet today for me to test it. I was about to try the fuses as well

    Yeah, it'll come and go until it gets fixed...had the same prob 2 years ago. If I had it on lower turns then the errors would show up.

    Might be a stretch, but ask them to check the starter as well, slight chance that could be acting up..

    Ish always happens in threes.

    think it's your car letting you know to pay a bit attention to it as well. :scared:

    The test that they are doing should check everything. I just hope it's a cheap(price wise) fix

    Prices vary, so you're looking roughly at 300 ~ 600 ish price range...

    Well, with cars something's always bound to go wrong ~ especially when they reach the age of 5 years...then the fun of having to replace one thing after another starts. :funny:

    Hopefully nothing else bad happens.

    Wise move.

    Time to knock on wood. Lately I'm noticing a lot of people with '10 & '11 bought vehicles and experiencing tons of probs ~ mostly connected with electronic system.

    That's quite a mileage. Roughly 25k+/year ~ which is probably around what mine is as well..
