Fuel pump issues??

Post by Happyginny » Sat Sep 09, 2017 9:34 am

My car shut off, seemed to not be getting fuel. My son changed the fuel filter, the old one was full of black gunk. It started, ran for about 10 minutes then shut off again. The new filter is not clogged.

Could my pump be clogged now? A strainer inside or something?

Any advice would be appreciated, this is my only vehicle

Thank you, Ginny

If you have a lot of gunk in the tank the new filter could be clogged. I'd check that first.

I would guess the fuel pump is going out...
