Default car keeps dieing every few days

well the pos car died again tonight. It seems to do it once i fill up with gas. not sure what the issue is and its only at our city market. It died then i turned the key off and it hesitated then fired up (new alti. new fuel filter, new plugs, wires are new) could it be a fuel pump maybe? The idle is low when its not under a load I.E drive rev. what do you guys think?

full re cap of how and what i replaced, and when:
First died pulling into my parking spot died (replaced the alti. tested bad thought that was it)
couple days later did it again (replaced the fuel filter cause id tap on it and it would start running again)
now maybe 2 weeks it died on the way home came to a stop and the car died. (turned teh key off then it hesitated then turne don again)

FYI 98 legacy outback auto. with 226k and 2.5 engine.

Make sure all of your grounds are clean.

Sounds like a fuel pump issue. Try and replicate the stalling symptom, then have someone whack on the bottom of the tank and see if it starts while you're cranking it over. If so, replace the pump and sock.

yarrgh tried that when i did the alti.

cal_look: that was my guess it seems like a fuel issue casue it dosent just die it seems to studder then die. It sould just die then once i turned teh key off it seemed to fire back up but sometimes it takes a few trys. Think when turning the key on the off it kinda sent the pluse to the pump to kick on thinking the pump is getting ready to go

Yeah the pump could be bad, or the pre-filter or "pump sock". The white thing on the end of the pump.

Take it to your favorite mechanic and have a fuel pressure test done.
