Be certain the fuel filter has been replaced on your vehicle at least every 30,000 miles, if not this is the sort of drivabilty problem a plugged fuel filter can cause, the fuel system is under pressure so it is not recommended to have a novice try to service it.
Firstly it is located near the fuel tank under the car and the fuse for the fuel pump needs to be pulled before attempting to replace the filter(metallic cannister) pay particular attention to the input and output ports of the filter reverse installation can create havoc on your repair attemption, also be sure the vehicle sits over night without being run before attempting to remove the fuel filter and be sure to remove the gas cap in order top relieve any residual tank pressure that may have lingered in the fuel tank pressurized system.
Again be sure to work safely wearing eye and hand protection, no open flames and the vehicle safely blocked and or jacked up being supported by jack stands as well.

Engine cuts out while driving on the highway


JUST SAW, the most common cause of your engine dying and backfiring while driving on highway would be low fuel pressure. check fuel filter for foreign debris. filter may be clogged or restricted, also a weak fuel pujmp. the other thing could also be a stuck e.g.r. valve, this would have some exhaust carbon deposit stuck on the seat of the valve producing a vacuum leak, but it would not idle properly.faulty fuel pump would give you a good engine idle but would starve for fuel at high highway speeds, when the engine needs for fuel for proper operation.

I have a1995 s10 with a 4.3 five speed non vortech. While on the highway the fuel gauge will jump way past full and die then go down back down and run fine then repeat again every few minutes.


the engine dies or the fuel gauge dies? has anyone replaced the fuel pump? maybe check the ground wire , its attached to the frame near the fuel filler inlet. (left rear wheel area)

Check the IACV, its located at the throttle body, facing the firewall. They get junked up with carbon. Just clean it up with carb cleaner and bleed out the air from the coolant.
