Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.

Does it shut down if you put the AC on driving lets say 40 mph? or only when you come to a stop?

Does both actually stops when am driving at that speed and today it did it twice while I was dead stop in traffic

So if you are driving lets say 40 mph, then put the AC on, does the feel like the car just dies out ?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
First it gives you a little jerk and then a few minutes later the vehicle jus dies
Expert:  Jay replied 4 months ago.

That sounds almost like the AC compressor is seizing up and causing your issue. That cleaning the MAF sensor and replacing the fuel and coil, is just a coincidence.

OK so I gotta buy a new pump or can it be cleaned and put back together
