    I changed the air filter, it had alot of power after I did that. the filter was pretty bad. the check engine light went off. drove it for a little while then it was like it was looseing power again. do you think it might take a couple of days get it all out of there. or could it be a sencer. its not doing it all the time.

It starts fine and about 3min into driving it looses power and won't go more than 20mph and it stalls like it wants to turn off

Sounds like a fuel pump or fuel filter problem. I would replace the fuel filter first. That is the easiest and less expensive. Good luck.

1995 Ford F-250 diesel idles fine, loses power when driving more than 5 minutes. Blinking fuel filter light goes steady.

Did you ever change the fuel pump? most of the time when fuel pump is weak does that on hills, and then is hard to restart

Drives fine for about 5 miles then starts to lose power then eventually dies. pull over alongside the road, cycle the key about 6 times, then it drives fine for bout 1 mile and does it all over again

This could be due to a fuel system problem, perhaps a clogged fuel filter. Since any debris in your gas tank would be settled to the bottom for the initial startup, the fuel pump picks up clean gas and has no problem supplying the injectors. As you drive, the circulation of the gas from the tank through the filter could cause the filter to plug up with debris, gradually losing power until fuel pressure is not sufficient to keep the car running. Try replacing the fuel filter and running some fuel injector cleaner through with your next fill-up.

96 s10 2.2 4cyl. running lean . It has new fuel pump and fuel filter. I've checked the converter, new 195 degree thermostat,changed fuel regulator,changed front 02 sensor, changed coils and Diagnostic tool...

I know you said new fuel pump and filter but I would recheck the fuel pressure. Drive the vehicle with the fuel pressure gauge on it and see if the pressure drops after 10 minutes.
