Then on the way home on the freeway it shut off no warning no dashlights came on as far as warning sat for a few mins then started back up i am now looking at fuel pump . thinking its going bad . am going to autozone today see if i can borrow a fuel pressure gauge hoping it will show me that is my problem . i have new transmisson i had rebuilt had a tune up just done and my oil changed . had new timing belt put on when bought car also has new water pump i am just hoping to get this fixed car only has 178 thousand .

how many miles on the vehicle? what type of gas are you running? and have you checked the fuel filter? does this happen when the car is mostly warm and been running, or does it do this all the time?
