I had the same problem with my 89 grand am it was caused by a faulty crank position sensor. Initially it would cut out when accelerating and eventually wouldn't start at all, replaced the sensor runs great again.

You need to get the engine trouble codes by performing the "keydance" or using a code reader, then start checking fuel pressure at pump and regulator. Best luck. Amclaussen.

98 chevy sub. k2500 to accelerate poorly


Likely a clogged fuel filter or defective fuel pump. Confirm correct fuel pressure with a gauge. If the pressure is low, remove the fuel filter and check for obstruction. If it's hard to blow through it, replace it with a new filter. Then retest the fuel pressure. If pressure is still low, then it's likely that you have a defective fuel pump.

Starts fine and the engine will idle then it will die from idle try to accelerate and it seems like its out of fuel replaced feul filter no change friend says its the catyletic converter but it happened...


here are the converter symtoms: decreased low rpm power, engine runs a little hotter then normal at cruising speed, exhaust leaks near header, bucking or jerking during accelerating, cats exterior surface temp cooler near outlet. if you suspect the cat of being bad take it to a garage, to find out for sure if it is, have a good day !!

Check your throtle postition sensor. It monitors what postion the throtle is at and sends that info to the ecm. It will go bad and cause that problem.
