If your fuel filter was considerably blocked with debris, sand of foreign material, then it is highly possible that your fuel pump would also require looking over (check/replace). In most instances, there is a strainer (a filter of sort) incorporated into the pump. Should you decide to do this, it may also help if you add "fuel injector cleaner" to your tank so as to clean the other fuel lines.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

I just replaced my intake gaskets and plenum gaskets,new plugs,cap,rotor,wires,refined the distributor. now I have an engine miss fire at low rpm speeds,what could be happening?

you more than likely have a dirty or bad injector in this situation, you can change your fuel filter and run a can of royal purple maxflow fuel system cleaner to a half a tank of gas if it is not too bad this will probably clear it up, if the low rpm miss is still there you need to bring it into a repair center and have a decarbonization done to the engine this will clean the injectors top end of the motor cataletic convertors and pretty much the intire engine

My 97 tahoe the rpm's start going funny engine startes running like its missing popping and ******* and die's it has new fuel pump ,sending unit ,rotor, censor ,fuel relay everytime i c

I'm assuming you replaced the fuel filter when you did the pump.
You'll have to try to figure out if you are loosing fuel to the injectors or spark to the plugs to proceed.
Its possible something is failing inside the distributor among other things.
I'm also assuming you have checked the computer for trouble codes.

My 95 7.3 turbo runs and idels good no miss but something is holdeing it back when u push the gas I have changed the fule filter and air

Here is what my Haynes Diesel Engine Repair Manual says for a noticeable lack of power, which is what you are describing.
1. Blocked air intake
2.Incorrectly adjusted timing
3.Blocked or damaged exhaust system
4.Obstruction in fuel filter
5.Blocked fuel tank vacuum vent in fuel cap
6.Insufficient fuel supply from tank to injector pump
7.Obstruction in fuel tank filter
8. Pinched or restricted fuel return line
9. Incorrect or contaminated fuel
10.External compression leaks ( glow plugs or injectors)
11. Obstruction in injector nozzles
12.Low compression
This book has an excellent diagnosis and repair section for your engine. It's Haynes part #10330 and costs about $20. Hope this helps.

Engine stalls out on occasion like the key was shut off have change air flow sencer mapp sencer new vaccum lines

Check your plugs, wires, distributor cap/rotor, fuel filter, and air filter.

If I had to take a guess, I would try replacing the Distributor Cap & Rotor, as well as the Fuel Filter. Also, try running some Gumout Fuel Injector Cleaner and a tank of good gas through it.

I hope this helps! Best of luck to you :-)

Best Regards,

Runs & idles rough has no power when cold gets better when warm

Spluttering and missing is usually one of two things Fuel or spark ?
Fuel problems will be traced to 1/ in line fuel filters .. 2/ tank run low on petrol throwing dirt and grit into tank filter ( if Fitted ) and blocked or restricted injectors a good fuel additve sometimes cures that problem , but replacement is a far better option .
Poor spark plugs breaking down under preassure oiled plugs due to overfilling or incorrect fuel mixtures .. poor or cracked distributor caps dirty or damaged rotor arms in said cap .. leaking HT leads damaged by rubbing and contact with hot engine causing sparks to fly to nearest earth disrupting the spark and ignition timing ... hope this helps Regards vortash

Fuel injectors or Distributor Cap?

the blinking CEL light is an indication of a miss-fire, run the code retrival test to find out what cylinder is the one missing, at your miles it could be almost anything from a low compression issue to a bad distributor cap, a fuel injector could be the problem, run the test and get back to me, Kragen and other chain parts stores will test the system for codes for FREE!

Still missing

hi there i seems that you have replace alot of components after driving for a few days to let the ecm relearn with the new components . is it still missing at low speed ? seems you may have a spark plug thats not offering up its full potential please isolate what plug is the weak one by removing one spark plug wire from plug at a time to listen to the engine and see what plug is causing miss ok good luck you could replace all but this is an extra expense take a look

Engine still missing

I am very happy that I can help you, check the vacuum hose, maybe the vacuum is leaking. Vacuum hose is a 1/4" hose.
