Hi. the pump may be strained, due to a clog in the filter. I recommend replacing the fuel filter and pump in this case. i would also change the air filter as well.

If you have the time, go ahead and swap out the wires and plugs as well.

Disassemble and clean the carb, particularly the jets. I suspect the charge light being on is a result of your destroyed battery, which needs to be replaced. Sta-bil over the winter and a smart trickle charger will prevent the problems you are having in the future...

1994 chevy pick up c1500 stalled out while I was driving


This stalling is fuel related issue.When the fuel flow becomes low, the engine ask for fuel.But fuel pump does not send required fuel and engine stalls.In some cases, it stall then dies after stalling for few minutes.In some cases, if stalls for few seconds or minutes, then again get required fuel , as you accelerate more and engine starts/runs normally.But once this problem is started and it repeats again n again.This is indication f low fuel pressure.Get the fuel pressure checked and replace fuel pump and fuel filter.-----------

First of all I have to say that It is not easy to know the exact cause so Please don't rate if it doesn't help! Well that said, it seems like the engine don't have enough fuel pressure. It might be of a weakened fuel-pump or a clogged fuel filter(or alike). When you try to drive away immediately After the start the low pressure of fuel, results in stalling the engine but after a while the vacuum built in the engine helps the fuel flow. As said it could be something else like faulty automatic choke or electrical problem or other. It would be wise to let some workshop read the fault codes to make sure of the cause.

You have a lot to check. Start by scanning the engine codes. There's good chance it will tell you where to look next.
The symptoms sound like fuel delivery (assuming the engine runs well when it runs). Put a fuel pressure gage on the car and verify that you are getting a constant and good pressure. Could be fuel pump, blocked lines, bad fuel regulator, or an intermittent electrical problem. I had a situation like this where the car would run fine and then just cutout or not start. Turned out to be a loose connection to the fuel pump. Easy fix. Very hard to find.

Where is the fuel filter on a Saturn Vue 2004?


It is part of the fuel pump module inside the fuel tank, all the cars are starting to use this type of setup, the filter is only serviced when the fuel pump fails.
