I had the same problem! It took me 2 fuel filters to fix the problem temporary. Finally I ended up replacing the entire fuel pump (a mechanic told me one of the prongs holding it in was broken?) No problem ever since though!

HELLO: It could be a frozen gas line and or stopped up filter, filter is on drivers side under the truck, looks like over sized small coke can with a connection on both ends. Thats the first place I would check.

My check engine light is on & is keeps cutting out or bogging down when the engine is on. I also smell fuel when I get out.


Sounds like the oxygen sensor. Try unplugging it. The light will stay on but it should run fine. If so replace it.
