Recommended Posts

ok on my 2000 grand am it has like a a weird feeling as i drive it going down the highway and go to give it more gas it seems like its getting just short burst of gas instead of a constant flow does any one have any ideas on why it is doing this i have had many people tell me it seems to be the fuel filter?

id definantly start with a fuel filter. they tend to be cheap and not too difficult to replace. plus if youve never done it or cant remember the lsat time its worth a shot

no going to lie i think its the original one and my car is at 108000 miles

Does it "chug" off the line and in the lower gears but fine when you get up to speed? if so one of my cars use to do that and it was a loose spark plug wire. check that too but it could be the fuel filter.

Replace the fuel filter then do a fuel pressure test on the system. A worn fuel pump may still give the same symptoms that you described.
