Impossible to tell from that alone (although the most likely culprit). What's the car doing?

That's what mine did before getting the 933 pump. I immediately tried to drive it to the dealer and it died 3 times in about 3 blocks.

Good luck!

same thing happened to me this morning. didn't try to drive it, though, so didn't notice power loss. check engine light did come on, so i called the dealer, and they told me to have roadside tow it in.

it had been starting really rough and idling really rough with sputters for about a week. it would go on for about 1-2 minutes like that and finally stabilize. i'd kept my eye on it and had planned to call service this week... until the car decided for me that i should do it today. :P

the SA said that the HPFP is officially recalled (YES!) so they are going to replace it while it's in, either way. i hope that was / that solves the problem. i'd brought it in for rough starts before, hoping they'd replace the HPFP, but they only changed the low pressure sensor and shrugged.

about time. never been so relieved about having to take my car in for service....

Yes, it it the HPFP/Injector problems. They will replace the faulty HPFP and injector with the new software reflash.
