asked by on

HELP!! why did my car shut off while driving .. gas pedal to the floor, gas hand fell to 0, will briefly turn over but will not completely crank, will not stay running, is it the fuel pump?

My car has 1347878 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

You may have a bad fuel pump or connector to fuel pump. You will need to have the computer tested for codes and continue diagnosis of the codes or fuel pump.
