Hi Im David, thanks for visiting the site. why did the mechanic replace the fuel pump? was there low fuel pressure? he needs to do a flow test and cleaning of the fuel injecotrs. he need to do a back pressure test of the exhaust system to make sure the cats arent clogged and he need to make sure there is no sediment on the bottom of the tank that the new pump is already sucking up.
