If the fuel is not leaking onto the road, the fuel high pressure system is failing. Clean or replace the fuel filters, they are probably blocked with dirt. If that does not work, replace the fuel pump.

SOURCE: loses pressure when driving forward and backwards. It won't go any faster than 25 miles per hour

Sounds your catatylic converter is clogged.You will need to have the exhuast pressure tested.Or the next time you drive it for a little while stop and look under at the converter to see if its cherry red.Also put your hand behind tail pipe and feel how much pressure is coming out at idle.

My 2000 malibu chugs while going down highway 5 miles an hour


If you have done basic tune up stuff, I would check fuel pressure with gauge installed and running down the highway. Other possibles are bad ignition module, loose wire somewhere in coil circuit, bad fuel pump, filter, many others.

Car stalls, starts up then stalls again, starts up and stalls again


This could have several problems. #1 Fuel pressure due freezing water in fuel lines add thermal aid or rubbing alcohol . If you have access to a pressure gauge there is a service fitting on fuel rail that you can test pressure while driving and see if the pressure is gone when car dies this could lead to fuel pump electrical or more restricted lines. #2 intermittent sensor failure Mopar uses 2 sensors to control spark and fuel lose one could lose spark lose the other lose injection with a scanner they call it C/C sync ok (cam/crank) if no then check for each parameters for display.# 3 relay controls ASD and FUEL pump for voltage drops.

Loses power


How many miles? What year? Have you check the air and fuel filters? Have you changed plugs? The rest of the tests would be: Check fuel pump pressure and volume, check compression, check timing and advance, check catalytic converter.

Why my 2005 chevy astro loose power when driving, could it be catalytic converter going bad


When it comes to loosing power the only thing left is your Carb. or your injectors. your Catalyitc converter won't make you lose power, that is part of your exhuast system. run some Carb or Injector cleaner in your gas tank next time you fiill up, I use a pint of Acidton per 15 gallons but I don't suggest you do that, buy some injecter cleaner at pep boys.

Drives fine for about 5 miles then starts to lose power then eventually dies. pull over alongside the road, cycle the key about 6 times, then it drives fine for bout 1 mile and does it all over again


This could be due to a fuel system problem, perhaps a clogged fuel filter. Since any debris in your gas tank would be settled to the bottom for the initial startup, the fuel pump picks up clean gas and has no problem supplying the injectors. As you drive, the circulation of the gas from the tank through the filter could cause the filter to plug up with debris, gradually losing power until fuel pressure is not sufficient to keep the car running. Try replacing the fuel filter and running some fuel injector cleaner through with your next fill-up.

2992 Cadillac Seviile stalls, restarts - runs then loses all power - no power sterring. Turn car off and it immediately restarts, runs for a while - 10-15 miles then no power and stalls. This repeated...


Hi!
Check your vacuum hoses for broken, cracked or loose connections. Attach a Fuel Pump Pressure Tester to the service port on the fuel injector rail and monitor fuel pump pressure specially when engine is losing power. If CHECK ENGINE light is on, perform a DTC scan. Autozone, Checkers or similar Auto Parts stores perform this service FREE of charge.
Good Luck!! A HELPFUL Rating would be greatly appreciated

My olds silhouette, (2000) has 100,000 miles and seems to loose power when traveling uphill after it has heated up after 70 or 80 miles travel. Could it be the fuel filter or a weak fuel pump?


You could very well have a pump that is weak and loses some of it's pumping power after it has gotten fully warmed up. Have you ever noticed a temporary improvement in power after refiling with cool fuel? A test drive with a fuel pressure gauge should tell the tale about pump condition. Usually a restricted filter will cause a starvation problem all the time instead of just after a long drive. It certainly wouldn't hurt to change the filter but I doubt that it is your problem.

Car after hour of driving loses power. Only goes


Check fuel pressure when truck acts up and check for spark to rule out bad ignition module or coil.

2000 chevy blazer 4X4. After driving twenty to thirty miles on freeway when I pull off to the off ramp and come to a stop my battery gauge will start to flicker as well as my fuel gauge, will do that...


Are there any codes in the pcm?
There are quite a few things that could cause this;
Make sure the battery cables are tight and clean.
If you have a way to do it, need to find out what the fuel pressure is at when it is acting up.
Dose it miss at all or just loose rpm's and die, no matter what you do? (meaning can you keep it alive by pressing the gas peddle)

To me it sounds like your new fuel pump is loosing pressure while running for a while. But try and get a pressure reading and post back, that will give us something to rule out, or to address.
I think the light flicker you are talking about is just low engine rpm's?
