With todays gas having 10% ethanol in it that makes the throttle body contaminated. Get some TB cleaner and after you clean it remove the battery terminal to reset the brain and then crank up the car and allow it to run for 20 minutes re-learn the high and low idle measurements since cleaning the throttle body. Their are videos on youtube.

2010 kangoo 1.6 16V Auto, fuel pump not working

Try disconnecting the fuel supply pipe from the fuel injection system and cranking the engine over to see if fuel is being delivered as the pipes or filter or even the pickup in the tank could be blocked. The system will need the air bleeding out afterwards but you'll need to do this anyway if you change the pump.

You'll have to check for spark at the plugs and fuel pressure next time it quits.
Could be ignition module, a relay, fuel vapor lock, or a list of other things.

2003 Hyundai Sonata hestitates; now won't start

Did the 'Check Engine' Light come ON? Whenever the 'CHECK ENGINE' (Service Engine Soon) light comes on, the ECU (Engine Control Unit) sets a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC). These codes identify the particular engine management system which caused the light to come on.
You'll need to use/find an OBDII (On-Board Diagnostic) Scanner to retrieve any code which have been stored in the ECU computer. Afterward, we might be able to help you DIAGNOSE the problem and perhaps eventually fix the problem.
