1973 280 SE 4.5

I have a couple of questions: The first my car has taken to intermittently acting like it is going to stop running even if my foot in on the gas pedal. Today I had trouble starting her (I LOVE this car, her name is "Olivia"), wasn't getting any gas despite again, my pressing down on the gas pedal. The second question is, once I ascertain what is wrong can anyone out there recommend a good mechanic in the Los Angeles area?

Try the fuel filter first. They're not too expensive to replace. Can you expound on your problem? Does it do it when hot? Cold? Only at idle?
