Question about 1995 Pontiac Sunfire

2 Answers

Stalls after it runs awhile,

My daughters car a 95 sunfire runs for awhile then shudders then stalls, it starts ok but as soon as you put it into drive it stalls, there is a new fuel filter, a mechanic told me that the fuel pump has two settings, one for idling and one for driving.
as well, is the fuel pump in the tank?
Sure would appreciate your advise.\

    Put a fuel pump on 2001 focus when the tank is down it will start and run when I jack the tank up in position it cuts off and stalls.

Runs fine then it just stalls. Wait awhile and it runs fine then stalls again
