I am definately a novice in the mehanic world, however this sounds exactly like a problem I had with a Pontiac (yes I know it's a different car...but for the most part, the electrical is the same). I threw all sorts of parts at it before the mechanic figured out that it was a bad ground that ran through the drivers side kick panel in the door entry. Once we cleaned the wires and ground them again, the car ran clean. I just thought I'd throw it out there in case it helped.

Did you install the fuel filter in line with the fuel flow? They usually have arrows on them saying "in" and "out"...if the problem started just after you changed the filter, might want to check it out.

Ran out of gas ran fine for about 2 days went to friends when leaving it died,started right back up,but shaking real bad like a missfire,checked and seems the coil packs r ok,


Sounds like something in fuel system is clogged form running to low on fuel if vehicle is old and fuel filter has not been replaced for a long time.
It does not take much but a small particle to clog injector or it could be fuel pump is going out. You need to check fuel pressure and change filter and also you might have to get fuel system flushed and you might just have replace injector at worst. Hope this helps

have the fuel pressure and volume tested with a gage.this sounds and acts like a fuel pump problem.check the fuel filter as well and replace anyways.when it won`t start but cranks can you hear the fuel pump running.listen at the fuel filler neck with the gas cap off.if you can`t listen under the car at the fuel tank you should hear it running/if not hit the gas tank and if the car starts then the pump needs replacing.you should check to make sure you are getting spark at the spark plugs to eliminate an ignition problem but i think its fuel.

If you hit the tank and it ran? The fuel pump is bad. By striking the tank you jarred the pump, causing what mechanics call "The last ride" Peice of sound advise, Replace with ac delco pump. The zone pumps go out usaly within months if not days

I would check the fuel pump, fuel pump relay, fuel pump fuse. When you turn key to "start" you should hear the fuel pump turn on. If no sound then check the above. A cheap 12V probe tester can detect volts at the fuel pump electrical plug.

Sounds like the fuel pump got air in the system. You may have to bleed out the air. Then it will run. Check the fuel tank for fuel first.
