What does this sound like, car people?
My boyfriend has a 2004 Kia Optima that hasn't had any issues in the 6 months he's had it.
It has 160k miles.
So last night, we drive to the store, come out and the car won't start. We try and try, then it starts and immediately dies. The battery works and it turns over.. just a hard start.
So we think it may need gas, so we haul some, put it in, it drives out of the parking spot and dies. Eventually it starts again, drives 5 minutes and dies while downshifting around a turn.
I think it sounds like a fuel pump maybe? But im no expert. Ideas?
We're getting it checked tomorrow.

My dad's 83' Camaro does the same thing and it's the fuel pump. Whenever we drive it, we have to pump the gas peddle like 7 or 8 times to start it. It'll die right after it starts, then we pump the peddle again and it's golden. You may need to replace it.0
