I think the fuel pump could be going bad did you hit the fuel pump reset switch on the driver side by your foot .It could be on the other side.I had the same problem with mine a few years back I couldn't get it fixed so I sold it.Its a problem that happens with that car for some reason check and see if it is under recall.
