Customer Question

1995 GMC Sonoma with 4.3 TBI, 2-wheel drive, automatic. I have no power, it goes about 20 MPH tops. Had a code of 32 which indicated a faulty EGR Valve. Bought and put on a new EGR Valve and took it out for a drive. Couldn't get more than 20 MPH yet. Stepping on the gas pedal makes it bog out and die. I was 10 miles from home, it finally got down to 2 MPH and died totally. Letting it rest a while and you can start it again but no power. Need help! Maybe plugged catalytic converter or fuel pump? Please give some advise.

Expert:  Tims Auto Repair replied 1 year ago.

you need to check the fuel pressure..it sounds as if the fuel filter is clogged or the fuel pump may be weak and needs replaced

Expert:  Tims Auto Repair replied 1 year ago.

if it is a tbi engine,,the pressure must be no less than 9psi at all times
