Hi, this may be a dirty fuel filter. i would start here by changing the filter and added some fuel treatment as well. Also, check your spark plug wires for breakage and lose fit. If you haven't had a tune up recently, this would be a good thing to do as well.

Can you hear the fuel pump hmm for about 2 seconds when you first turn the key on?
If no, then it may be the pump, relay, ECM or the circuit in between them. Since it got out the driveway I would lean towards the pump. Another thing to check that powers the fuel pump is the Oil Pressure Switch. It will energize the pump when there is oil pressure.

If the fuel pump does buzz, check for spark. Pull a spark plug wire and set it by a ground source (a bolt on the head or rocker cover, not a fuel line!). Don't touch the wire as there is high voltage crank the engine over while someone watches for a spark. If no spark then take the ignition module to an autozone to have it tested.

If there is a fuel pump buzz and a spark then the fuel pressure should be tested.

2000 chevy venture. wont start. change fuel pump runs perfectly for one day. next day the van start and drives out of driveway sputters and dies. starts and sputters back home. change the fuel censor. ...

Testing is the way to a fix . Fuel pump pressure testing , electrical testing . Viewing engine sensor data on a scan tool . Instead of guessing as to the problem learn to test or take it to a qualified repair shop . Changing ECU without doing it correctly can cause problems that were not there before . PCM - engine computers need to be programmed , dealer only.

I have a 1989 Ford Crown Vic. Here lately the car will die going down the road. It will usually start right back up. SO, I replaed the in line fuel filter and it was fairly dirty. It ran great for a few...

Most likely the fuel pump,when the fuel filter gets that restricted,it most of the time,is not long before the fuel pump goes out,because of the strain on the pump.

Chevy impala pulls up to the stop sign & stops running,started right back up & drove home died again as I entered my driveway. A tune up & servicing recently completed. Any suggetions?

throttle position sensor was probbally cleaned improperly(it is ill advised to clean the intake sensors, but to no avail some mechanis think it can be done) you will now have to replace the throttle position sensor, let me know if this helps.

Died and it wont start

listen for fuel pump running at fuel tank when key is turned to "ON". runs for 5 seconds. If yes, then check for spark at plugs. If no then fuel pump is not running. Check fuse per owner manual or replace pump in tank.
