Replaced fuel pump but still revs up the engine and shuts off?

There is gas, the starter is fine, the battery is good. It doesn't matter what temperature the engine is or how long between starts but if I rev up the engine while cranking it starts okay. Rarely I have to rev at stops or the idle drops too low and stalls. If I punch the gas very quickly it revs and drops quickly and then stalls. Starting has a success rate of about 50% without revving. If it stalls, I must rev the engine to start.

Periodically won't start. Starts up revs up then shuts itself down. If I just turn key it just cranks. If I pull key out and restart revs up and shuts itself down. I let set for a day and go out to start...

I had this same problem and couldn't figure it out, got fed up and replaced the fuel pump (turned out to be flex fuel) and it's been running fine ever since. This fuel pump is expensive.

Won't shift into gear and shuts off

Check the exhaust system to see if it is plug up. also check you vacuum system to see if you have a lose vaccuum hose???? The cat converter might be plugged up not letting it rev up????

Car shutting off occasionally

I would have your Mass Air Flow sensor checked. It may be dirty and causing you this issue.
