Sounds like the wrong fuel filter or the fuel filter is installed incorrectly.

It is unusual to have a real dirty filter. Consider having your fuel tank flushed out. Chances are that the injectors got some of that dirt in it. Get a bottle of a fuel tank additive called seafoam and pour it in the tank. Drive for ten miles and see if it clears up. Generally it will. J.

Check fuel pressure. If weak then either fuel pump or filter need replacing.

My 97 chevrolet s10 p/u acts like its starving for gas i checked the fuel pump, its pumping good/ i put a new filter on it and plugs, the old plugs were solid black, what could be wrong with it?


Solid black plugs usually means a rich fuel mixture.
Has the check engine light been on with the engine running ?
What was the fuel pressure at idle, and what size engine do you have ?

Acts like it is starving for fuel changed fuel filter serveral times it will sometimes run good for 10 miles


It could be the fuel pump, not the fuel filter.

The fuel pump is usually located inside of the gas tank.

Hope this helps!

3.0L 2000 DODGE CARAVAN SHUTS DOWN WHEN STOPPING AT A LIGHT OR STOP SIGN. NO LIGHTS ON DASH - NO ENGINE LIGHT. TURN KEY OFF AND RESTARTS OK. MUST KEEP FOOT ON GAS PEDAL AND BRAKE PEDAL TO KEEP ENGINE...


it sounds like it is starving for fuel, the fuel filter may be clogging up. when a fuel filter gets dirty and cuts some of the flow of fuel, it will stall out at stops. because the engine does not have the proper amount of fuel to keep it running. have a good day !

Assuming you have good fuel pressure, change the air filter if it is dirty. this will have the same effect.

I have a 1994 Cadillac Deville Concours. The car starts fine and runs great for approx. 15 minutes and then acts like it is starving for fuel. The car will accelerate with light pressure on the accelerator...


Any check engine light or codes? My first thought would be tps or possibly fuel filter. As car builds up pressure a clogged filter would cause your symptom.

Having a problem with my 93 camry v6. car shakes when it is idle, when i accelerate car makes a clunking noise and doesnt accelerate as fast as it used to. also check engine light is on. could it be dirty...


Most likely you need motor mounts for the shaking and clunking.
The check engine light being on could cause the accelerating problem. It could be something as simple as the fuel filter being old and plugged up. Have you ever changed the fuel filter? This could cause the engine to run lean making the check engine light come on. And when accelerating the engine will be "starving" for fuel causing poor acceleration.
