...so I took it to a mechanic who found a bad coil and a bad hose. Both have been replaced. The car starts but runs very poorly feeling it is going to run out of power. Mechanic thinks it is the feul pump... Tomorrow, he will test the pressure and let me know for sure if it is the pump...
Thanks OldSchool! I'll try it when I get the car back this weekend. The mechanic couldn't test the fuel pump and he has given up after trying the following things:
Pull/replace spark plugs
Pull/Bench test coil packs and replaced 1
Checked wires, vacume hoses, MAF, intake for leaks/shorts
R&R (not sure what it means)
Replaced air filter
Rewired ground to 6 coil packs
Chcked individual wires to coil packs and injectors
R&R IAC hose
