1994 G20: Chevrolet..Van..gas and if you push down hard, it bogs down

Customer Question

I have a 1994 G20 Gladiator series Chevrolet Van. It ran fine until I ran out of gas - since then, it starts but does not idle - must keep foot on gas and if you push down hard, it bogs down. Replaced fuel filter but is not the problem. Can you help?

Have you tested the fuel pressure? The most likely problem is the fuel pump. It may have overheated when you ran out of fuel. And when they are already old this can cause them to fail.
