It could be that you have picked up a batch of dirty fuel, or there is some dirt or rust inside the tank, that has clogged the fuel filter that is in the engine bay. Try replacing this filter first. If that only improves things slightly, it could also be that the dirt / rust in the fuel tank has clogged the gauze input filter that is part of the fuel pump inside the fuel tank.

To clean the tank filter, you will need to remove the pump assembly from the tank. Access to it is usually through a removable plate in the floor in the rear of the vehicle. Disconnect the wiring plug and the fuel hoses, noting which hose goes to which pipe and undo the screws holding the unit in the top of the tank. You may have to juggle it a bit to get it out. Once you have the pump assembly out, allow the gauze filter to dry. You can assess the amount of clogging by shining a torch through the gauze and see how much light comes through. Clean it by brushing with an old tooth brush and blowing clean with compressed air. If there is a lot of dirt/rust in the tank, try draining it. Replacing is the reverse procedure. You may have to repeat the above cleaning process in a few months if the symptoms appear again.

I have a 1997 SAAB 2.0 Turbo and it has started to run rough after it warms up and when driving it loses power and runs very rough until power taken off. Any ideas?


suspect low fuel pressure to the injectors
run the fault codes to determine where the fault may be before you spend money

I have a Mazda MPV 2003, i bought from japan, 7 months ago, this van was running well until two days ago, it stsrts and cut off, starts again and while driving it is losing power then it will speed up


Before any diagnostics, I would run a tank of gas with a bottle of fuel dryer and injector cleaner to ensure that the engine racing isn't resulting from moisture and clogged injectors.

My 2000 buick le sabre jerks and loses power while accelerating.


first scan for any codes if it comes up po 300 just a guess it could be random misfire puts the car in limp mode . the igniton modual underneath the coil pacs the coils sit on could be redy to go or if not that check fule pressure by puting fule pressure guage on shrader valve located on fuel rail on top of injector assembly and check fule pressure with fule pressure guage. car of key on pump reading should be around 48-55 key on car on reading should be around 55.minus -3 to 10psi = reading of 38 to45 only if the fule regulator has vacume line atached to it on fule rail dubble check psi reqirments in car manual for co mpleat accuracy. If it doeint have vacume line pressure stays constant 48- 55psi

its not loosing the fule its running back into the tank, you have an air leak in the suckshion side of the fule line, a pin hole some were or a leaking joint it could even be in the fule pump itself or the fule filter "o" ring is leaking air but thats were the problem is try fitting a none return velve to the fule pipe upto the pump

How to check if fuel is getting to the engine


time to clean out the system
you should probably try running reg diesel through the lines
so drain the fuel tank and put some reg diesel in rem the fule line recently replaced and allow it to pour our into a bucket then after the fule starts running there then hook line back up and start pumping it through the injector pump remove 1 of the cylinder lines and see if you have fuel there using a clear hose and a bucket
attach hose to end of fuel injector line and see if it is pushing fuel through the injector body
remem ber you are still pushing reg diesel

now that the system is clean and clear hook all lines up and try and start the truck up on reg diesel
if it runs then your off to the races
if there is no fuel check the fuel filter it may just be full of gunk
or the pump might be cooked
but rem line b4 filter and check for flow
