Yes it could. Why not replace it? It's cheap and most people never do until they stall some dark lonely night.
It depends on what kind of car and what engine you have. Go ahead and replace the fuel filter although I don't think it will cure the rough idle. If you have a carburetor, it may need cleaning or adjusting. If you have fuel injection, try some injector cleaner in the tank.
There could be a few reasons why a 2000 Jeep Cherokee would stall in stopped traffic. There could be a fuel line clogged or there could be a bad spark plug.
The oil could be old and needing change. The oil filter could be getting stopped up, or the screen on the oil pump could be clogged. An oil change and new filter is the first place to start.
the problem could be that the enegn is jamed
My dashpanel lights stopped working in your Chevy Monte Carlo ss 2001 what could the problem be
The fuel filter could be clogged. Or the air filter could be stopped up, or the choke could be stuck. these would be the first things to check.
My 98 riviera was doing the same I put some stp complete fuel system cleaner and it stopped happening might be worth a try it was only $9
Several things could cause this problem. The fuel filter could be stopped up, or a fuel, injector could be clogged or nor operating properly. Reading the computer code should show if there is another problem with the engine.
could be clogged fuel injectors or a fuel filter.
It could be as simple as a stopped up fuel filter.
it could be a stopped up air filter
There could be a ground on the body of the vehicle. If this isn't the case there could also be a problem with the relay that go to the indicators.
They could be the same, but not always. To me, there's a slight difference.To me, a traffic hazard could mean there's something dangerous in the road, such as ice. Perhaps a truck has overturned and spilled oil onto the road, and so on.One example of a traffic problem could be very heavy traffic. At rush hour, when everyone is trying to get to work at the same time, just having many, many cars on the road at the same time slows everyone down. That causes a traffic problem.Other people might see this differently.
The problem could be a number of things, including clogged fuel injectors, a fuel filter or air filter that needs replacing, or a computer problem.
could be a vacuum hose leak--had the same problem and once the hose was replaced it stopped.
It would eventually get stopped up. When this happens while driving it could be really bad!
It is a problem. If the fans don't work, the engine will overheat when you are in slow or stopped traffic. This could simply be a fuse (check under the bonnet beside the battery for the fuse box - they should be clearly labelled). It could be the coolant teperature sensor or a fault on the engine management unit. Check with a mechanic for a proper diagnosis.
The 1995 Cavalier could have a stopped up transmission filter, or a vacuum solenoid problem. These would be the two most likely places to cause the problem.
Check the exhaust ignition interface. It could be a simple problem in the core module defribilator.
Check the fluid level to start with. If level is ok, then the filter could be stopped up, or there could be internal damage.
Take the air filter off and see if it runs without the air filter, if it does your not getting enough air and need to replace your air filter.
He could be stopped and he was stopped eventually.
Bulbs? Sockets? Steering column switch?
low coolant could cause this . without some backround ?
A clicking noise after changing an air filter on a car could indicate there is a problem. You should consult a car care professional.
