There are 2 very important tests you must run here to get to the bottom of this problem, 1st, have the electronic engine control system (known as the OBD 2) tested for trouble codes, this is key to finding out if any part in the system has failed and is causing this problem, if you are not in Calif any Autozone will run this test for free as well as other "Discount" auto parts stores like Kragen, the next thing to do is have the fuel pressure tested, this requires a special mechanical test gauge, it is cheaper to just have a shop test the fuel pressure than buy the tool, (about $50) do these 2 tests and I am sure you will find the cause of this problem in short order.

Jaguar XJ 6 97 engine shuts down acts like its not getting gas engine will restart and 22 to 35 minutes will run for about 5 minutes then shut down again could this be a gas filter problem


Could very well be the fuel filter, try replacing it, aslo check for a cramped fuel line, if the problem persists, check the fuel pump

the automatic gas shut off switch is located in the trunk tucked up under the wheel well I think on the left side for that car. you need to feel around for it and press a button on it to reset it.

I changed fuel filter, fuel pump, runs go for a minute then acts as though its running out of gas again boggind down in park


Try changing the fuel filter but use the repair manual to depressurize the fuel system before attempting the replacement,gas in the eyes is dangerous and painful. I suppose you could let the car sit for 4-5 hours and it will be safe to change out the filter.

1989 S10 Blazer acting like its not getting gas.


I had the same problem with my blazer and it took me to completely rebuild the throttle body and put over $300 into the top end, new filter, and it still didn't stop. I finally dropped the tank and started to go through all the proper steps to remove the new fuel pump and i found that the rubber tube from the pump filter to the intake tube had a crack down the middle of it, replaced that and it ran perfectly fine. if that's not the case make certain that you didn't accidentally switch the small fuel lines like i did.(you'll notice that EVERYTHING smells like gas and you'll have fuel draining out of the charcoal cab emissions filter). hope that helps out a little bit!
