Misfire... I think

Hey guys, I am a FNG to the subaru scene, but love the cars more and more. I have a 2006 wrx that I am having problems with. I was running down the interstate and all the sudden the car starts cutting and would not hold any rpm. I have no idea what to do. I replaced the plugs but still no luck. When the car messed up it had both the check engine and cruise control light on. I shot some quick videos of what it is doing if anybody wants to see them, and could maybe give me a hand. Thanks!

What codes did you have? That is the first step in the diagnosis.

Have you car scanned at an auto parts store or at a shop. Some places still make you pay for it though.

Oooops, I screwed up, fuel pump. Kind of wierd the way it wsa acting for a fuel pump. This is my first Subaru and I am convinced they are pretty good cars all around. I will slap the pump on and make sure, then let you know. nagyhead, thanks for the help and the quick posts. I really appresciate the help. I'm not like a lot of other people and will throw my ego to the side and ask for help if I dont know anything, so it makes me seem dumb. Thanks again!!!

Are you saying you changed the fuel pump recently and that was the problem?
