  1. does this only happen once it has warmed up, only cold only for first few miles or all the time and can’t drive it? Check engine light on?

    Could be clogged fuel filter or low fuel pressure. Have someone spray starting fluid in the air filter continuously while you try to rev it up, if it does then you know it is starving for fuel.

  2. yes light is on but the lights been on for a couple of yrs i tried looking for a filter but i think it might be in the tank cause i followed the lines and didnt see one on the frame or up near the injectors anywhere and this all started a couple of weeks ago when i let the gas go to low in gas tank but it could be something else im not sure oh yeh forgot yeh it does it all the time cant even drive it cause it will stall

  3. That’s the bad thing about letting a check engine light go without fixing what is wrong because when something does, you don’t know if there is a new problem, but your right, it won’t keep it from running unless it is flashing.

    Most likely the fuel pump is out. You can check fuel pressure.

    Repeat: Have someone spray starting fluid in the air filter continuously while you try to rev it up, if it does then you know it is starving for fuel.
