That wouldnt be a filter problem at least i have never seen it cause something like that. if it was a filter it wouldnt just sit over night then start up again it would let you start it then keep doing it possibly but i dont think its the filter with the way you described the problem.

it could possibly be coil/cap and button on distributor
fuel pump could be about to go out.

Shuts off while driving but starts up


Sounds like it's not getting fuel. Check fuel pressure at the fuel rail. If low, make sure the pump is running. If the pump is running, but no pressure at the rail, check fuel, filter. Get back to us with result of these checks.

1994 chevy pick up c1500 stalled out while I was driving


This stalling is fuel related issue.When the fuel flow becomes low, the engine ask for fuel.But fuel pump does not send required fuel and engine stalls.In some cases, it stall then dies after stalling for few minutes.In some cases, if stalls for few seconds or minutes, then again get required fuel , as you accelerate more and engine starts/runs normally.But once this problem is started and it repeats again n again.This is indication f low fuel pressure.Get the fuel pressure checked and replace fuel pump and fuel filter.-----------

I have a 2001 Camaro V6 3.8L that stalled on the highway a few days ago. The car stalls almost instantly after starting, ive actually got it to run for about 20 secs a few times but still stalls. Plugs...


When you turn the ignition to on you should here the fuel pump run. If you aren't hearing it then it sure sounds like the pump. Assuming nothing has happened to the car to affect electrical connections. I don't think there is a fuse for the pump but worth checking also.

Car will on stay running for a few seconds before shutting off


It could be that your fuel filter could be clogged. You can check this by doing a fuel pressure test. After it dies, all the sediment drops off the filter so when you start it back up it does run for a small amount of time but then gets clogged up again after you start it again because it picks up the sediment again. You might also want to check your ignition control module. But my guess it's something to do withing your fuel system somewhere

Engine won't start


are you sure lack of petrol was the reason the car stoped. try leaving the ignition on for a whlie and also turning the ignition on and off and leaving it for 10 second before turning of.this will get the fuel pump working, pumping fuel to the fual rail. and building up fuel pressure again.hope this helps

Intermitantly stalls


Check fuel filter, blow back through fuel lines to tank, check lines for blockage, leaks or cracks, drain and flush fuel tank.
Make sure air intake is free from leaks or blockage, filter is clean and correctly fitted
Check fuel pump connections, try to hear if pump operates by turning on ignition (without starting engine), pump should operate for a few seconds until pressurised then cut out, any longer indicates worn or leaking pump, lines or connectors, especially if done over 300000km.
Otherwise check earths from engine to chassis, also EMS fittings for corosion, or have unit tested.
