My 89 f-150 300,000 miles starts great runs great with good oil pressure never been hot loses power at times and will die when idling. the check engine light comes on immediately when this happens and

check all vacuum hoses for deterioration /hard /loose. Check power brake booster for air leaks with the foot on the brake (idle will drop or stall)

The pump seems to be running but the water is not coming through with any increased pressure, therefore the cleaner is not being propelled within the pool. What could cause the pump to suddenly lose...

You have spun the center out of the impeller. Get a new impelleer at your pool supply place. While you have the pump open, replace the seals as well.

Air cleaner ok

I would check you oil pressure with a manual gauge....It has a saftey devise built in the system. If you don't have so much oil pressure the pump will shut down....Hope this helps you figgure it out !!

My pool filter runs fine when skimming, but when I attach the droid or manual vacuum the basket has sucked air. Do impellers ware out? Is there a seal between the motor and the impeller that can leak air?
