Sounds like the injectors ...they are located on your fuel rail on the top of the motor....

Go to the auto parts and get a container of Heat fuel treatment and get a new fuel filter also. Then pour in the proper amount of fuel treatment and change the fuel filter. This should fix your problem. Also when was the last time you changed the air filter. This would help it run better and increase your mileage.

From red light truck started sputtering and and stalled out


Hello. The GMC Sierra has an electric fuel pump so you should ensure that its fuses and relays are working before checking it. You may need to clean your fuel pump or replace it if your gas tank is not empty, but your vehicle has difficulty getting fuel. The GMC Sierra comes in a variety of styles and trim levels that can affect the replacement fuel pump you choose.

Not likely your problem. Sputters are usually spark and or fuel problem. Here is what we recommend to our customers with a drive problem like yours. First fill up with known good gas like Shell Premium. Not $5 worth, not regular, not plus, PREMIUM and fill it up!!! See how she does. You may just have a slightly dirty injector. Of course there is the tune up, which if due, should be done anyway. We have seen the 4.3 do this with a faulty or dirty EGR valve, bad dist caps and rotors, a huge amount of them had bad plug wires, bad injector but rare, plugged fuel filter, weak fuel pump, The 4.3l chevy engine is a beast and will run and run and run. They have their quirks but they last. I pray I've help.

Car spits and sputters and stalls after driving a while


sounds like a fuel pump problem,with fuel pumps u can have pressure but not enough volume,try goin up a steeper hill in 2nd gear and get about 3000 rpms on the engine and see if it really drops out bad and is really gutless,if that happens without a check engine light coming on it might be yur pump and u should also replace the fuel filter at the same time,hope this helps
