Hi my name is***** am a diagnostic technician and look forward to working with you.

Based on what you have said, this does sound like the fuel pump may be the problem. When you say the car suffers with power loss, how long does it last? Will the engine completely cut out if the clutch is depressed? Thanks, Ross.
