Default suby down!

so i was driving on an incline in 1st gear for about 150 feet then shifted to 2nd gear. i drove for about 100 feet and the pavement leveled out. my car turned off by its self. i used my accessport to scan for code "no codes" so now im trying to turn the car on and it stumbles from 600 rpm to 200 rpm trying to stay running, it cuts off in about 5 to 6 seconds. if i press on the pedal it does nothing unless i floor it then it starts to gain rpm very slowly and after it reaches around 900 rpm it just up to 5000 rpm

what im guessing is the fuel pump, everything in my car has been taken off and replaced including the fuel pump. im getting a strong smell of fuel inside the car but nowhere around the engine compartment

Might be electrical. Check fuses. Probably the easiest thing to cross off. My car did something similar in the past and it was a fuse. Just a thought. Hard to diagnose without seeing the car.

FUEL LINES!! Check them asap. Find it.

Also check your oil (sounds stupid but still) and vacuum lines.

Sorry for the super late response I currently dont have internet at home. So I checked the oil it sticks of fuel so I swapped it out. The car at a cold start sounds as if it has a bend rod but it goes away after its warm. The fuel system I still need to check
