Engine help!

So today after work I started my car up and it turned on automatically, adter i drove for about 2 minutes, it just shut off. I tried turning it on but didnt start. Once in a while it would turn on, stay idle for about 30 seconds but shook very terribly then it shut down. Also if I stepped on the throttle, it would turn off immediatly. Any ideas what it could be? Its my daily so I need help ASAP! Thanks, in advance!

Sounds like fuel pump. Or other fuel related issue. You can have a friend turn the car to run while you lay under the tank and listen for the pump to prime. My cars pump died like that. Best of luck.

Sounds fuel related to me also.
If you have access to a fuel pressure test gauge, it will make it very easy to tell if it's the fuel pump failing.

One of my neighbors told me it might be one of the fuel injectors failing; he also told me what you have said, so hopefully might get it checked in tuesday :'(

Like it's being said I would check on the fuel side as well! Any mods on the car? Anything installed or replaced in the past few days?
