Make sure the fuel pump relay is working correctly. Listen at the fuel
filler when someone is cranking to hear if there is any fuel splashing
when the tank is below half full. This indicates that there is a leak in
the fuel feed line from the prepump to the main pump. Make sure the main
fuel pump runs whenever you are cranking the motor. Usually your
symptoms are those of a failing main pump.
The goal when driving is to miss the maximum number of objects.
