in Naperville, IL on January 04, 2011
I have a 96 chevy express. yesterday while idleing, it stalled and would not start. a few minutes later it would start it ran for about 2 miles then puttered out. would not start again, waited a few then it starts but only gets me about .25 miles.
I made it home after many stalls... any thoughts? Please.

sounds more like a fuel pump. you should have the pressure checked to confirm.
even if the filter was blocked, it has a bypass to allow the vehicle to run, not well, but run .

Given the reported problems with the in-tank fuel pump, is there a way to install an electric fuel pump outside of the fuel tank?
