Hello, welcome and thanks for asking your question. My name is*****'m a Certified Auto Technician with 31+ years experience. I will do my best to assist you. please keep in mind that I may need to ask questions of you before I can answer. When you reply please feel free to add as much detailed information as possible pertaining to your concern.

How many miles on the vehicle??

If the fuel filter has not been replaced recently then I recommend to at least pull the fuel filter for inspection. The filter should be able to be easily removed for inspection. if the filter is dirty then I HIGHLY recommend to replace it first before doing any further diagnosis. After replacing it road test it and let me know if the problem is solved. If the filter looks new, go ahead and reinstall it and post the results here...

Keep me posted...

Thank you,

Robert

Keep me posted and let me know if you have any additional questions...

Thank you,

Robert

What Customers are Saying:

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
