Any other sugestions besides this part. Just changed so many things wanted to have a couple more sugestions when i bring to mechanic.


May be check the fuel filter,and fuel pressure,to make sure pump is operating corretly.


This was my guess all along....but im a girl so i dont know tooo much about cars. Just drive. The mech said that it prob wasnt fuel filter cause it would still shake n stall while driving.. You have been super helpful and would reccomend your sight to friends n family. Thank u
