Do you have the ability to check for trouble codes in the PCM (Engine Computer)? Any repair shop will do this first as todays cars, trouble codes are part of diagnosing and repairing vehicles like yours.It may be a fuel pump causing the problem, but the trouble codes will pin point the problem for us.
