I think your car has fuel injection and the fuel pump isn't working. Listen at the fuel filler and when you turn the ignition on the pump should run for 2 seconds. If not check the relay first then the pump. They are known for bad fuel pumps.

I have a 95 K1500 suburban and I put 285/75 R16 on it and they fit just about right. Don't think I would try any larger without a lift kit of some kind.

Bad switch? Bad motor? see if you are getting power to it Open wire usually found in door jamb area

the door hinges are welded so you have to use a small hammer and small punch to tap out the pins that look like big nails.

On my 1999 Chev Suburban the answer is the fuel filter. It appears when going uphill and trying to give it a lot of gas the engine is not get enough and misfires. I replace the fuel filter and the light goes away. It comes back after a while and I just change the fuel filter. I have 227,000 miles on my suburban

Could be, a bad thermostat, low on engine coolant (leak), a faulty fan clutch, a missing or damaged fan shroud, a plugged radiator,

I would replace the ignetion module that is in the distributor.

That would be the 4L60E transmission.

Any lower than 15 psi would indicate a problem. But as long as you have at least 10 psi you are getting lubrication. If you have low oil pressure then change to an AC/Delco filter and 5w20 weight oil.

A red filter blocks every color except red from getting through, so you would see red.

Yes. Had a 1994 Suburban 4X4 with 350 V8. Started loosing power at about 184,000 miles. Had fuel filter changed by rear gas tank, frame, mount. It cost $64 at Jiffy Lube to have it changed. The old filter clogged and blocked about 1/2 the fuel flow at 184,000. Trunk ran like new after that, so I have them changed at about 100,000 miles now. What a difference!

The setting of the sand filter should be on filter for a normal vacuum. However if you are getting rid of the results of using clarifier from the bottom of the pool you would be beter of vacuuming to waste.

The odds are that you have either a defective fuel pump that is not getting enough fuel pressure to the injector system, or the fuel filter is clogged and is preventing fuel getting through. If the fuel filter is the problem, you may hear the fuel pump (located in the fuel tank) run for several seconds after you shut the engine off. If you don't hear this, my guess is that the fuel pump is bad. I had to replace the fuel pump on my 1996 Suburban last year. If you do replace the fuel pump, spend an extra $12.00 and replace the fuel filter after you have driven the vehicle for a 100 miles or so. This will get rid of any material that was stired up when the fuel pump was replaced.

What was your clean starting pressure? When was the last time that you backwashed the filter? When was the last time that you broke the filter down and cleaned the grids in the proper manner? Sounds like your filter is getting dirty. k

A 1989 Ford Escort would not be getting fuel if the fuel pump has failed or the filter is clogged. A local mechanic or dealership can diagnose and repair the problem.

I would first look at the fuel filter and make sure it is not stopped up. If it has a check engine light then I would have a repair shop diagnosis it for you.

bad fuel pump, no gas in the tank, pluged fuel filter.

User Avatar

dirty fuel filter, bad fuel pump,or clogged fuel lines.start with the fuel filter

It would if it is so clogged that is blocks the flow of gasoline to the engine.Yes, if an insufficient amount of fuel is getting through the fuel filter.
