Question about 1989 Chevrolet Suburban

Where is fuel filter on 89 chevy suburban?

My car keeps sputtering, when i try to drive up hill, stalls and wouln't restart. when i turn the key, i hear a humming or motor noise, is it the fuel pump? i was told to check the fuel filter first, it's been very very cold here and may be clogged.

1995 ford contour cranks but won't start, change fuel filter, fuel pump, and spark plugs. Not getting any spark.

Have you ever heard of testing before replacing parts ? Fuel pressure an flow tesing , testing the electrical circuit for the fuel pump , amp draw testing , voltage drop testing etc... Thier are no magical fixes in auto repair . No spark ! check B+ voltage an ground circuits for the ignition system , Ignition System Designs Operation and Testing an SD Premium video

I have a 1990 chevy s10 pickup, it stalls in reverse and sputters like crazy when driving. I t idle real rough and I have to drive two footed so it won't stall at lights. It also has problems going up...

you could have a fuel pressure or volume problem that will have to be checked out.could be a plugged fuel could even be a tune-up problem(bad plugs,wires,etc)its possible that the catalytic converter may be plugged and this will have to be testes with a back pressure test.these are places to start.

Just had the 2000 Buick oil changed on Friday, been driving fine then just now kind of sputtered like it wasn't getting gas, after turning it off and then turned it back on ran fine. Could this be fuel...

i would check the fuel filter before anything else. a fuel filter will block fuel flow if dirty, then when shut off the dirt settles to bottom of filter. upon restart its fine till the dirt gets in the filter again. it wll also cause car to bog down if dirty, especially on hills or grades. it will be slow on take off and may stall out at a stop. if bad enough. have a good day !!

My 2003 Chevy Malibu suddenly lost power climbing a hill. The engine light started flashing. I was able to drive it home at 30 mph.

Could either be the ignition system - ie, coil packs, fuel filter, fuel pump, or bad gas. Was it sputtering?

1992 pontiac boneville, keeps stalling

Have you chg.fuel filter and had a fuel pressure test done? Does it have spark after it stalls? Fuel pumps are a common problem, they work when cold get warmed up they quit, after a while quit all together. Do the fuel pressure test.
