Did a mechanic diagnose the bad fuel pump or did you assume it was bad? If it was diagnosed .. what did they base the diagnosis on? If the car starts sputters and dies it's one thing .. if the car starts runs fine then quits it's another thing.... If the Fuel pump was changed without changing the fuel filter (usually under the car) or if your anti-theft is doing it is hard to tell ... but if a mechanic diagnoses the problem and he is wrong .... hold them to it if they refuse then you have recorse
