Sounds like a possible fuel pump problem...When they begin to go bad they will overheat and lock up, then work fine for a while and do the same thing again. By changing the filter you lowered the flow resistance and allowed the pump to work a bit easier but still being bad, it did the same thing again. There are other things that can do this as well, but pump is most common.

It sounds like the ground wire to the sending unit(located in tank) might be loose. The ground wire usually starts at the top of the tank at the sending unit and goes to a portion of the frame. Or the sending unit could be going bad.

Low octane gas and a missfire could caused the knock sensor to send a signal to the computer which retarded the timing and caused you to loose power. When you killed and restarted it, it recovered. Maybe some new plugs are needed.

Our 02 Yukon xl 1500 will die going up hills.


You need to have the fuel pressure tested while driving and this can be done, and with the gage. I hook up the gage to the fuel valve and put the gauge facing the windshield and wire tie it to the wipers to see if the fuel pump is bad, if the fuel pressure ranges at 30 PSI I would put a load on it to see if the fuel pressure dropped under those conditions you are driving. I would also test the fuel pressure regulator to see if it gave full fuel that means pulling off the hose and making the fuel rail pressure 50 pounds per square inch. If the regulator passed the test then I WOULD SUSPECT THE FUEL PUMP HAS QUIT. A 2002 is old enough to have this happen they wear out so I hope this helps and gives you an ideal of what to fix.

91 Dodge ram 50 ignition problem, rough idle in drive,dies when braking


my ram 50 starts just like any other vehicle, (no light switch pulling whatso ever), it sounds like somebody haas rewired something wrong or you have a loose connection and when you hit a large enough bump it cuts your power. Start it up and find a speed bump somewhere and drive over it enough to give your truck a jolt and see if it dies.
