It sounds like it may be too late for the filter. Sediments collect at the bottom of fuel tanks, so running out of gasoline can prove to be a real problem. It can gunk up your fuel injectors pretty bad. You should look into an injection flush. Although it can be found at parts stores, if your not very mechanical, you should have a service center do it. This is very likely your problem.

    Fuel pumps rarely if ever get clogged. It's his injectors.

Fuel pump is clogged. for best results replace, for temp fix remove pump empty assembly's fuel contents and dispose of as per local requirements, and replace, no guaruntee but worth a shot

You need the exhaust converter so the O2 sensor can
work properly

It sounds as though the converter is blocked,as well
as the fuel trim, if that is correct term for an OBD1 System,
is not able to report back the oxygen in the failed converter

So the ecm can not provide the correct fuel mixture by
pulsing the injectors

I would also expect the timing chain to have a lot of slop
& possibly be off a couple teeth, from worm plastic gear

1991 buick park ave. missing at highway speed, tach revs up to 3000 rpm instead of usual 2200 sometimes dies at take off and then runs like normal for a while


It seems that correct amount of fuel is not being supplied to the engine. Most probably the fuel nozzles have accumulated some dirt. Try spraying some carb cleaner into the air intake assembly when the engine is idling. This ought to mix with the air-fuel mixture being injected into the cylinders and if the nozzles are narrowed, should clean them up.

give it a oil change and put a new fuel filter on it. you might have to change spark plugs and spark plug wires. also put some engine and fuel treatment. if that does not work put about 5 gallons of premium fuel in.
