Well it turns out it was the fuel pump. That $600 swap turned into an $800 swap.

Hopefully thats the issue if its the fuel side of the engine thats not working. Of coarse mine didnt just need switched on it actually needed replaced due to a small plumbers tool box sliding into it and damaging it. A bad fuel pump is way more costly as a part and in labor.

Mybad didnt realize we were on a second page. Wish you would've lived closer I would have charged you an 18 pack of bottled bud light for changing your fuel pump and had fun doing it.. lol

Lol well i have plenty of guys that will do that but since it was already in the shop and I wanted it running I had them change it, but the car is running great, drove it to work this morning, lets see how the rest of the week goes. It sure feels a lot stronger than it did before!
