2001 Hyundai accent wouldn't start this morning after sitting two days prime and no codes kept screwing with it I primed and runs then only primes sometimes but still runs great miss chug

Hi Miss Chug:
I'd start by using some carb/injector cleaner and make sure that the fuel delivery system is working properly.
If this is a carb type engine, make sure the automatic choke is not sticking.

This Jeep starts missing (chugging) at about 45 mph. What would cause that? Replaced plugs etc.

run the fault codes. check the serviceability of the cat converter as it may be broken inside and blocking the exhaust

1997 4x suburban 7.4 misses and stumbles at 55 to 70 in especially going up grades, Changed fuel filter and still same problem. My mechanic is saying fuel pump is going???

Fuel pumps usually just bail. For short time prior to failing it may get louder or sound like its "changing gears". Use a pressure gage on the fuel system to be sure.

When was it tuned up last? Original plug wires? Change them. With plug wires its the age not the miles. Please use AC Delco wires, you'll thank me.

Your vehicles age almost guarantee's a vacuum leak under the under the hood, some where.
Check all vacuum lines coming off the intake to wherever they go.

Have a garage hook a scanner to the computer and check the oxygen sensors. If they are bad, it can cause the engine to run too lean, creating missing and stumbling.

Hope this helps.
