There is probably not enough flow or pressure of fuel to the engine for anything higher than idle.

Have you replaced the inline fuel filter? This sounds like the probable culprit. A clogged fuel filter will cause a pump to fail in a short amount of time.

If the problem's not the fuel filter i'd get the fuel pressure regulator (on the injector fuel rail) checked out.

Fuel Pump problems

Is it your fuel pump--how would anyone know that ?

You have to perform component tests first, to find any
problem, with any vehicle

You make the repairs as you find problems & only replace
parts that fail a test,then continue on with the component testing,
road testing & such

A failing fuel pump won't likely be felt by how press the gas pedal,
there is no connection there

Check fuel pressure at the motor

There is never a person that comes to this site & we get thousands
a week, that install plugs,wires & sensors & never test or check a thing & never fix a thing.

Learn the vehicles systems & how to test them,never install parts
Those days were the 1960's --won't work with today's technology

Check any type of idle air control valve or solenoid you may have
Check for vacuum leaks & egr system issues

Failure to start. then will start next day. Mazda said it was fuel pump. They replaced $790.00. did not resolve problem. they kept 2 days and said it was battery. Replaced. @ weeks later same problem.

Well, they probably did put on either a bad fuel pump or should've done the relay.There is also a fuel pump REGULATOR that can cause a lot of trouble. Make them keep at it,since their work should be warranteed when they say they've fixed it. don-ohio
