Rough start/idle question.

Any ideas what might be causing this?

Very difficult to say. Other symptoms of the car? Everything was peachy and you woke up one morning and it was doing this? Any back story?

If it is the fuel pump, good news it would be the LPFP not the HPFP which isn't as expensive to fix.

It could be a few things. No other information you can provide?

It won’t start at times like this but if I give it enough gas it sometimes starts. It will be fine for a week or so and then die again. No codes being thrown or anything.

Could be a fuel pump on its way out.

with the info provided I will have to lean towards the LPFP as well...

Just dont go cheap on the replacement. Use OEM or an upgraded aftermarket pump only.

It was fuel pump. Went ahead and replaced that and the regulator, harness and filter. Thanks!
