Sound like alternator faulty. if you see volts light flashing.if alternator volts out put is only 11.0 volts due to faulty voltage regulator or slipping drive belt. 11.0 volts not enough to volts to run the elecronic stability control system.have alternator check out at auto parts store. they can check alternator out put volts with engine idling fuel filter is part of fuel pump module you cant replace fuel filter unless replace whole pump module..

SOURCE: car doesn't seem to get enough gas to engine

Have you done a tune lately on the car?
I would also suspect a fuel pump problem is you've done a tune up recently.

SOURCE: 1990 f150 w/5.8 FI motor, idles good, take on road, it boggs down

Have you changed the tps? The tps is like a dimmer switch with the idle being the lowest setting and everything above that being progressively stronger. If the switch is bad it will not advance spark or gas flow.

SOURCE: my check engine light DOES NOT come on when i turn

The light is located next to the gate adjar light in the upper left area of the cluster. It at the 2500 rpm mark on the tachometer.
I would take the vehicle to your local Auto Zone and ask them to scan your car for trouble codes. The will scan the car for you at no charge. Write the codes down and respond back.

SOURCE: jeep 2008 patriot esp light on Malfunction

Check under drivers door sill step. There is a spice I believe the wires are red or pink in color. The splice will be wrapped in black hockey tape looking stuff. Peel the the hockey tape stuff off and you will find that this splice is corroded and not making contact anymore. You can repair this splice and your problems will be fixed. Be sure to use some good heat shrink on your repair to prevent from happening again.

I just recently replaced the spark plugs and wires on my 97 jeep wrangler, and the gas millege seems to have gotton a whole lot worse. What do you think could be wrong with it?

I would check to see if the fuel filter is clogged. You may have a gas leak. Your fuel injectors may be leaking as well. Make sure the tires are at correct inflation. If they are low, you will use more gas. You can also drop a fuel injector cleaner into the gas tank to see if that will help.

2001 sebring recently started sputtering at low rpms. Started after a recent fuel fillup. Tried dry gas and STP gas treatment. No change. Could this be a clogged fuel filter?

It could be but sounds like some bad gas, try using some octane boost because the gas you got might not have enough octane in it to run your car. So try using Octane boost and no its not the same as a gas treatment. gas treatment just cleans your lines and intake. Octane boost puts more octane in your fuel which is needed to run the car properly so try that.

No power when going up hill

when was the last time the truck had a tune up? plugs wires air filter fuel filter and if it has over 40,000 miles a new drivebelt put some STP gas treatment in the gas tank and if this helps the problem replace the fuel filter; the fuel pump is in the gas tank and the fuel filter is underneath the truck normally on the driverside just under the door or the passanger side just in front of the rear tire in the frame
