Appreciate any help you guys can give. This new member is my sister, she's having problems with my old 3.8L. Biggest problem I think is the fact that it has a LOT of miles on it.

Matt looked at it I'm told and diagnosed it as a possible fuel pump problem. Anyone have a good used stock fuel pump?

Got a Fuel Pump from a member here, and it should have arrived in Wichita by now. I don't know if they got it installed or not. I haven't heard from her, so I'm assuming things are going better. (I hear from her when the car is NOT running well)

I'll give her a call tomorrow and find out.
