I originally thought this was a bad battery too, but we replaced it with a brand new one and it did the same thing as the Optima.

If I'm not mistaken, according to the OBC the voltage doesn't...

1) I replaced the Optima because I wanted it in my new car, and I wanted to eliminate that as a possibility.

2) While I didn't test it for connectivity while trying to start it, I know it's good...

The battery is brand new, and it had a working Optima in it as well, so that is eliminated.

The switch is good, they were all replaced.

Yes I did. It finally threw a code when it was sputtering and about to die. Yours might not throw a code, because mine did it a bunch of times with no code. Camshaft position sensor. I replaced it...

Well the fuel pump wasn't too expensive, as I bought it used on ebay ($35). I'm going to rent a fuel pressure tester kit from autozone and check out the o2, MAF, check vacuum lines for a leak,...

I replaced the fuel pump and let it idle for a while, and it sounded like it fixed it. But 5 minutes later the car died while idling, and stumbled upon startup. Once it starts, I "clear it up" by...

Cool. I see if I can pick up a fuel pump. It has pumped 170K miles worth of gas. Anyone else experience this problem before?

I ordered a "good pull" from...
