Did it do this before you installed the fuel filter? If it did not, then you might want to double check and make sure the fuel filter was installed in the correct manner. They do go in a specific way.
goodluck

You also might want to check the fuel relay, see if it's been burnt out.

If the truck is still having issues, you might wish to look at the TPS (throttle position sensor). If it's sitting at too low of a position (broken spring usually), it could be killing the truck.

SOURCE: 1999 Grand Am 3.4litre idle problems. Starts rough

it sounds like you have a injector leaking down into one of your cylinders so it is flooding out a cylinder thus runs rough and long cranks.

My 03 kia sedona starts up and will idle for 30 or 40 minutes and die out ad start up again and run a few more minutes nd die again then not start for a few hours


Change the fuel filter and see it that helps. It sounds like a fuel supply problem, and the filter is the least expensive most likely place to start.

1994 Ford Ranger Starts runs for 3-4 minutes then dies, changed ignition mod, fuel pump, fuel filter, fuel pump relay,checked vac hoses, totally lost!!!!!


As with any no-start or stall problem you will need to figure out if it is a fuel or ignition issue.
The high idle usually means you have a vac leak or a problem with the throttle body or idle air control valve. The control valve is how the computer controls the idle speed.
You'll need to watch the fuel system and spark to see which is being affected when the engine dies.
You might want to hook a test light up to the coil to see if it is loosing voltage for example.

Sounds like the fuel pump going bad. You will need to check to make sure you have the correct fuel preasure for at least 10 mins. You can find a fuel preasure tester at any auto parts store. Same thing happened in my 2002 Escalade, replaced the fuel pump for around $650.00. Good luck

1983 Mazda RX7 lacks power rough or no idle


Sounds like carb idle air or fuel jets are clogged.. Test pressure with a gauge to be sure. Float level and drop needs to be exact.. Operation of the whole carb relies on this. Probably why you are not getting any change in your air/fuel adjustments.
