Change filter first, its cheaper and easier. But from what Ive been hearing this ethenol gas is the culprit for all these fuel issues in cars. Especially in '98 and older. Unfortunately you will most likely have to change the pump too. Hope this helps and if you change both try to stay away from ethenol.

Van acts like the fuel filter is plugged, and losses power when going up hills

Do you have a fuel pump? If its bad or weak, you aren't getting enough gas to your engine. Has anyone thought of the filter in your gas tank?

1996 Chevy Lumina overheats. Radiator replaced, water pump replaced, thermostat replaced, heater core bypassed, temp sensor replaced. Air blowback into the overflow tank. Looks like it is boiling but it...

Pressure in the header tank with cool water is a classic sign of head gasket blowing between cylinder and water jacket. Not bad enough to blow water into the oil yet.

I over heated my van it shut it self off antifreeze every where changed the waterpump the two tubes from the pump and the thermosstart it dont over heat any more but the over flow bucket is always empty...

I'd watch to make sure water isn't getting into your oil.
If it overheated, a head gasket or warped head could allow water into the oil pan.

Water would seem to mysteriously go away.
Just make sure after adding lots of water that oil on the dipstick doesn't look like a chocolate malt.

Otherwise, a leak is somewhere else.
Heater cores, water pumps, and radiators need to be looked over for hairline leaks.

As more and more water has to be added to keep levels correct...problem will show itself soon.

Hope this helps...

It is tough to tell without looking at the engine, but I would recommend checking your spark plugs. If you hear a chugging, at least you know that your fuel pump is working. The gas sounds like it is not being ignited properly. Hope this helps!
