It can be but their is many more various parts/components that do the same--bad gas--egr valve-restricted exhaust-air filter-fuel pump-catalytic converter--bad wires-plugs-etc. usually u will feel the loss of power on acceleration or feel the car starving for fuel --check fuel pressure or a fuel filter is easy and inexpensive enough to change and if it hasnt been done in a while good idea to do so

98 mustang gt cut off after get warm

H ave you checked for gas at carb,or injectors checked fuel filter, water in gas tank, old gas,vaccum leak if you haven;t checked for these problems try and see what happens,sound like fuel filter clogged up not letting gas thru.. do you have a inline fuel filter at carb or injectors , some times they get dirt in them, check for these problems first..then move on to another solution.

My car cut off while driving. wouldnt start back up. check the gas line to the engine and no gas is coming through. what could be my problem and do i fix it

its the fuel pump going bad and also your fuel filter might need a new filter because if the fuel filter is plugged up to the point that the fuel pump is working too hard to try to pump the gasoline through the filter and can destroy the fule pump so if there is no gasoline coming through the gas lines that means check for filter and pump. Usually some times you can hear the fuel pump working on some models like a humming sound in the back of car.

Has began cutting off in midmotion. Have put fuel

if it were the fuel filter you would feel the engine starving for fuel. If it just cuts out its not a filter. Its most likely a fuel pump or one of three ignition parts. Only testing will reveal the faulty prt unles you just want to throw parts at this.

My 2004 kia optima was skipping last night then the check engine light came on and it cut off. after it set all night it started back up this morning only to cut off again. where is the fuel filter...

OK, the gas cap and fuel filter things are fair W-A-Guesstimates...but you need to supply more info for any of us to help you accurately.

How were you driving when it "cut off"? Were you driving along smoothly at a fixed speed over 35mph or on the freeway at cruise? OR, were you accelerating from a stop, or pressing hard on the gas to accel hard or to go up a hill, were you turning...had the engine been running awhile(Was it fully warmed) or was this immediately after startup?

Fuel filters dont come and go. If its plugged causing loss of power, waiting 1/2 an hour or overnight wont unplug it and make it run better. The Catalytic converter could plug up and the symptoms are nearly IDENTICAL to a plugegd fuel filter in most cases. If the car cut off only under heavy load (acceleration or up a hill) then it still may be the fuel filter restricting flow. However if it cut off at idle or when coming to a stop, the odds say it isnt as they rarely plug instantly (Only if some kid dumped sugar or **** in your tank). They plug up slowly and regularly so you will 1st noticet he problem usually for days or weeks as only under acceleration, but it will usually idle FINE till it plugs completely. If it even IS a fuel problem. You REALLY REALLY need to get the trouble code that turned on the Check Engine lamp pulled for you with a scan tool. Any repair shop should be able to do that for a diagnsotic fee, or some auto parts stores still will do it for free or a fixed rental charge (like 10 dollars plus security). It may not even BE a fuel problem. It could be a crank sensor, sticking EGR, an electronic throttle problem, spark leakage...or 1000 other problems that can make it misfire, stall the engine, and cause general unhappiness and sore feet. We need to gather evidence and data to accurately direct you.
