Hi, this is a fuel pump failure. its dieing slowly. i would also run a test on the distributor/coil. you may have a problem here as well.

most likely a bad fuel pump, do you hear it hum when the key is on? fuel pump has to pump 180 pounds of pressure to operatethe motor, some pumps do come on but don't pump enough pressure for car to run.if ou have spark but no run, it's a fuel issue. you wre right o replace the inline filter, that's where i would've started.i suggest you replace that fuel pump. if you disconnect the fuel line at filter@ turn the key on, the gas should shoot out about 20 feet. hop this helps!!

Change the gas filter if you havn't already done so. It sounds like fuel restriction to me or perhaps a faulty fuel pump or cheap gas has blocked the gas filter. Hope this helps! Good luck!

When accelerator is pressed down the engine stuters until use ease off the pedel. can only use 1/4 to 1/2 throttle.


The most common problem for this is the fuel filter or dirty spark plugs. If it is the plugs you would have a slight miss when idleing or be able to smell gas fumes from exhaust. Also your gas mileage would go down. The fuel filter will cause the vehicle to feel like it will stall and die when you try to accelerate or raise the rpm's in idle. I hope this helps. If you try both and it does not help try pulling the trouble codes and having them checked.

Replace your fuel filter and airfilter. If this doesn't work - you may need a new coil pack or cap and rotor if it has a distributor; if this is the case, change the spark plugs and plug wires.
