ok, some of u may hav read my "fudged up night" post in OT....
i think something is wrong with the fuel system
i recently changed my fuel filter 'cause my car was choking a bit..
it helped out alot, but it still didn't seem to run quite right...

i hit a patch of constrution work on the road kinda hard n the alty cut off....

it would start, but it would sputter then die, like it wasn't bein' fed enough gas
i doubt it's electrical, but i'm open to ideas
my distributor looks fine, n the symptoms were a lil' different wen i had problems with that...

maybe my fuse for the fuel pump has a glitch since i didn't pull it out with the proper tool but instead with a screwdriver, i don't know....

first thing to do is to make sure you have gas! Sounds silly, but it could just be an oversight!

I would check the fuse for the gas pump, then check the connections on the fuel filter and make sure the hoses are hooked up right. Clogged cylinders maybe?

has a quarter of a tank...
i think all the hoses were in, 'cause i didn't smell any gas...
it was too dark (12:30-1:30am) to really check it out..
i didn't even bother going to check it out today
i didn't want to even deal with the car..
i'll see about it tomorrow...

my engine light stays on 85% of the time, i'll check it....

well, the fuse is ok...
i guess i'm gonna hav to take out the back seat to check the fuel pump....

anyone else got any thoughts??

i made sure the vacuum between the throttle body n the intake filter was sealed up good....

oh, n the screw that allows me to see the flashing check engine light and reset the ECU is broken :(

isn't there a light attatchment or sumthin' i can hook up to see the codes??
