FIXITMAN : Hello, and thank you for allowing me the opportunity to help you. If I am not online when you are, please allow me time to return. Can you tell me what symptoms you had before the pump was replaced?
Customer:

The car would not start.

FIXITMAN : Okay and how long does the vehicle actually run for?
Customer:

the car will run for at least 2 minutes and then cut off.

FIXITMAN :

Okay. You need to install a fuel pressure gauge to the engine to see if the engine is losing fuel pressure. If it is then you have a defective pump or a circuit problem. If it maintains fuel pressure then you are more than likely losing spark. There may be a coil or module issue causing this. Do you have a fuel pressure gauge?
