You will need to let the engine crank for up to a minute to build up fuel pressure again. If this dosent work check to see if the is filter on in the correct postition, there is an arrow showing which way the filter flows, they only work in one direction. Also check to see if any wires or hoses were knocked loose during the install of the new filter. Also check for fuel leaks around the filter. Good luck

My 96 nissan altima dies at idle


Could be a dirty throttle body, vac leak, or a defective idle air control valve. The computer adjusts idle speed by controlling the amount of air entering the throttle body via the control valve.
Is the check engine light on ?

Doesn't sound like you've considered spark. Sounds like you're losing spark somehow. You seem to know your way around a truck, so I don't have to explain every little thing. Just check all the ignition stuff, go through the distributor and coil and plugs and wires. If it's gettin fuel, its either a spark issue or air/vaccum issue. Hope this helps.

Suburban 1993 2500 -454 / It runs rough on start up and then leans out and then the motor idles faster. It ran fine up until yesterday when my wife could not start it. Could it be a O2 sensor or fuel...


By "throttle body carb" I am assuming you to mean that the engine is equipped with Throttle Body Injection (TBI). The O2 sensors on that engine do not even start working for about 5 minutes. They are not going to cause a problem on start-up. A fuel filter will most likely not cause a problem on start-up or idle either. A fuel filter is most likely to cause problems on acceleration or when pulling a hill. A more likely cause would be a n Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) sensor. If one of these is reading too low, it will cause the engine to flood and smoke black out the exhaust - especially on start-up. (LIke a choke sticking on an old carbureted engine.) If your truck is equipped with a gauge, there may be 2 Coolant sensors. One for the gauge and one for the computer. If you replace it, make sure you are replacing the sensor for the computer.

I have the check engine light on, the engine will start and run at idle when the rpm's are incresed it sound like it has a bit of a miss at about 4000rpm and when throttle is let off the engine stalls...


Probably the fuel filter or pipe is partly blocked. When it runs at idle it has inough fuel. When you push the pedal it cant suply inough fuel and the engine sucks the fuel sistem dry, thats why it is so hard to restart the engine. Ewery time, when you turn on the egnition, the fuel pump in the tank is working only for three or more seconds. Because of blocked fuel pipe, or filter, it takes more time to pump up the fuel in the sistem. Chek the fuel filter and blow the fuel pipe.

When I come to a stop engine will idle down too low and die. Restarts ok. Isn't throwing any codes. I've replaced the egr valve, air filter, fuel filter, pvc valve and the plugs,


The throttle position sensor [TPS] keeps the engine running when you stop at a light.
it is located under the breather it has a plunger that pushes out against the throttle to keep engine running.

Engine wont fire until fuel is poured in throttle body


1993 s-10 should have a 4.3 engine. Your symptoms tell me your throttle body injector is clogged, and only allows so much fuel to pass through it. Therefore, on a idle there is not enough fuel coming through to keep the engine running, or to start it. If you replace the throttle body injector your issue should cease.

I hope this information helps you, and I wish you luck on your repair.
