'97 eagle talon tsi awd fuel pump

My '97 Eagle Talon (turbo) starts just fine when it is cold, but when it is warm it will start, then sputter a little bit and die out. If you try and press the gas pedal to prevent it from dying out, sometimes it will work other times nothing will happen. I just took it to a mechanic and he replaced the fuel pump and the fuel filter. My car worked for a day, then it did the same thing again. Any ideas as to what oculd be causing the problem? Thanks!

A good set of diagnostics is in order. However, below are some items to look at.

1. Water in the fuel tank.

2. Spark plug "wires" and/or other high tension ignition parts.

3. Cam position sensor or flywheel position sensor.

4. MAP sensor

5. Throttle position sensor.

6. Idle air control
