    My northstar hesitates at low speeds but runs fine after about 1500 rpm. It's not my head gasket, there is no water in my oil. could it be my fuel pump? or filter? my pump has been louder than usual at some times. it also has a spontaneous popping noise at low speeds. Help please.

    You are likely having a problem with fuel deliver or air delivery. There could be a fuel pump, fuel filter, or vacuum leak issue. There could be other issues, but if the car runs ok above 35mph, it would indicate that at slower speeds, the reduced vacuum and fuel demands are casusing the engine to stall, whereas at higher speeds there is sufficient vacuum and/or fuel to keep the engine running. Sounds counter-intuitive, but sometime car problems are.  You need to diagnose a few issues before you can fix the problem.

    Does the car idle smoothly?
    How is the gas mileage (compared to when car ran normal)?
    Do you have sufficient power above 35mph?
    Has the car been worked on recently?
    What, if any, major issues have you had with the car?

    Please answer the above questions. Thanks.

I have an 88 Cadillac Deville. 2 months ago I had a new fuel pump put in. It's making a whining noise and the car keeps dying and sputtering. What else could be the problem to make the pump go out?

Clean your MAF (mass air flow sensor).
