I think you have a fuel pump problem or you are out of gas.


Thanks for answering. I was thinking it felt like a fuel pump(i just filled up) and was looking at the fuse box to see if there was a fuse for the fuel pump but I think there are more fuse boxes I have not found.

if you have not found the second fuse box in your trunk then don't waste your time, it runs on a relay and the pump is direct drive, there is a filter in your gas tank, check and replace before changing the pump also replace your fuel filter
