Customer reply replied 8 years ago
it will get to @ 50 kmph at most running smooth other than the big problem of no power

Ok sounds like a fuel issue has a fuel pressure reading been taking when this happens?

Customer reply replied 8 years ago

do you mean the fuel gauge or is this an internal thing. I tend never to let the fuel tank go below 1/4 full.?

Auto Mechanic: Tom, ASE Certified Technician replied 8 years ago
No an external gage hooked into the fuel line to see if the fuel pump is failing.
