Hi, My Name is ***** ***** for posting your question to just answer. I am a ASE Certified Master Auto Technician with 20 years experience. I am confident we can resolve your problem together.Please remember I don't know your skill level. I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle. It may take a few back and forth replies to get to a satisfactory resolution.I also try to give all of the information you may need expecting a positive rating.

My best guess would be fuel pump. This is a pretty common failure with this vehicle. The best way to test this to verify is using a scope. You should ask your shop if the can test your fuel pump with a low amp clamp and a scope. If they cannot try a different shop.

If they have a low amp clamp and a scope I could assist them in verifying the readings.

It has been a couple of days since I have heard from you. Do you still need assistance? I have also noticed that I have not received a rating from you. If for some reason you question did not get answered please reply. I am only compensated for my time when you leave a positive rating. Your understanding is appreciated.
