Chevy 350

Could a old fuel filter on a 1994 Chevy 350 cause a truck to cut out and only stay running if you pump the gas pedal?

It could be the filter ,but i had 73 chevelle with same problem.the fuel line had pin hole rust in front of tank.I replaced this &the rubber hose & solved the problem. Rplace the fuel filter but your fuel pump may be getting weak.

A plugged cabin air filter could cause poor air circulation coming out of the ac vents but you would still hear the blower motor running.

It starts by missing and running rough when pulling a load, and worsens until the engine won't run at all.

If the fuel filter is clogged, it will act like it is running out of fuel. It can also cause the fuel pump to fail. The clogged filter will overheat the pump and destroy it.

YES. Bad fuel pump pressure can cause that problem too.

Could be a fuel pump going bad or a clogged fuel filter,

The fuel filter would not be clogged. Running completely out of gas would cause air to get into the fuel line causing some performance issues.

Perhaps a clogged fuel filter. If a car stops running--or won't start or stay running--it's either a fuel or a spark problem.

Anything that could cause a cylinder misfire can cause the check engine light to flash. A restricted fuel filter is one.Anything that could cause a cylinder misfire can cause the check engine light to flash. A restricted fuel filter is one.

There are many things that would cause a 1999 Chevy Lumina to stall. The car could be too low on fuel, have a leak in the fuel line, or an old fuel pump or filter.

A bad EGR valve should not cause the engine to not start. There is most likely another problem that is causing the engine to not start.

Plugged fuel, air filter, or catalytic converter can cause that.

you could have a bad alternator or faulty plugwires ,or even a dirty fuel filter check for breaks in wires.

The bypass valve in an oil filter allows the oil to bypass the filter if the filter becomes clogged. Some filters also have an anti-drain back valve when the filter is mounted in such a way as the oil could drain out of the filter. This valve prevents the oil from running back into the engine out of the filter which would cause the engine to be started with an empty filter every time.

Replace the fuel filter every 36,000 miles. A clogged fuel filter can cause the fuel pump to overheat and fail. A costly repair.

It could be fuel pump, fuel filter or out of fuel. To be certain, you can always use a code scanner to see if there are any stored codes.

Bad fuel filter or pump?I would check the filter first cause that' s the most likely cause and the cheapest fix.

There are several things that can cause your 2000 Mercury Mountaineer from running. The most common cause is a lack of fuel. You might want to start by changing your fuel filter.

Running lean usually refers to a condition where insufficient fuel reaches the combustion chamber. A clogged fuel filter could cause this. Swap it out for a new one before you ruin your spark plugs or, even worse, a fuel pump. Also, vacuum leaks can cause this condition. Go ahead and change the fuel filter since they are cheap and you will need to soon enough anyway. But, I think a vacuum leak is a more probable cause. Mention your car and engine type for better answers.
