I WAS DRIVING ON FREEWAY AND MY VEHICLE STALLED AND SHUT DOWN. I HAD NO ACCELERATION FROM GAS PEDAL, SO I HAD TO SIGNAL OVER TO THE RIGHT SHOULDER OF ROAD AND COAST TO A COMPLETE STOP. TRIED STARTING THE VEHICLE A FEW TIMES, IT WOULD START BUT WOULD NOT REV UP, EVEN WHEN GAS PEDAL WAS PRESSED. UTAH ROAD INCIDENT MANAGEMENT HELPED BY PUTTING ONE GALLON OF GASOLINE IN TANK SINCE THE TANK WAS CLOSE TO EMPTY, BUT STILL WOULD NOT START. ALSO, TRIED USING CARBURETOR SPRAY TO START THE VEHICLE BUT, STILL DID NOT WORK. HAD TO BE TOWED TO A SERVICE SHOP, WHERE THEY PERFORMED TESTS TO FIGURE OUT WHAT WAS WRONG. AFTER TESTS DIAGNOSED THAT IT WAS THE FUEL PUMP AND FILTER. I LOOKED UP WHETHER OR NOT THERE WAS A RECALL ON THIS MODEL AND YEAR OF VEHICLE. THERE WAS A RECALL FOR AFTERMARKET FUEL PUMPS, BUT I BELIEVE THAT RECALL HAS CLOSED. I HOPE TO HAVE MY VEHICLE FIXED UNDER THE SAME RECALL.
