A good pump and a bad one look identical; problem with the bad one is that after running for a while, it gets hat, begins to bind and then stops. Once cooled down, it will repeat the process. Even when pressure testing, it may "seem" fine but not be., 'till it gets bad enough to show up during testing. Your crank position sensor can act the same way, so can an ignition coil. (internal expansion during heating shows internal shorting.) When in "no start" check for spark. This should separate fuel problem from ignition related stuff. Then, go from there. Do real testing...guessing and replacing parts can cost you a fortune.

I own a 2006 toyota prius, last night i was driving down the highway and suddenly a triangle with an exclamation mark inside light appears on the screen and a warning noise, the car start to loose power...


You should take the car to Advance Auto Parts store near you should have a OBD II and have them use there OBD II code sensor reader to see it comes up with any codes plus they do this for free because they want to sell car parts to you but the OBD II machine they have works to find if your car puts out any codes. If you go to a dealer that they will charge you money to even do this. Usually the engine light should come on and stay on in your dash but if you have any type of wires being shorted out could cause the engine light to not come on. Do this simple trouble shotting to see if any codes come up and go from there.

Starts rought,drives and sounds like a lawnmorer?


The most likely cause is water allowing secondary (spark) voltage to go to ground. Look at all plug wires. Inspect carefully the inside and outside of the distributer cap...

Loses power while in drive.


To what degree do you lose power and in what way? Do you loose over-drive or does it loose power and speed (on the streets, highway, or at any speed). From your discription it does sound like either a fuel flow/pressure issue or a clogged cat.
