i replaced the cranckshaft position sensor to no luck the car still acts the same as it has starts runs for a few seconds then shuts off i talked to the guy i bought it from he said the night it died it was surging as in acting like it was down shifting or about to stall he was able to limp it home and the current issue started

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
spark not issue i went back over verything and found the fuel psi with my new gauge to be 35 not 48 i guess the gauge i did from loaner tool did not function properly. it chages to 35 perfectly every time during the brief moment it is running the needle just goes all over the place. is this the fuel pump or fpr
Expert:  Roy replied 11 months ago.

yes, it is the fuel pump. you will need to replace it.

it is not an easy tank to drop. the rear suspension has to be partially removed to get the tank down. very labor intense job
