Be careful removing the old filter. Best to turn the filter, not the nut on the fuel line.

The problem is likely in the fuel pressure. Filter'* are hardly an issue anymore since the invention of plastic fuel tanks. (there'* no more rust and metal debris to get caught in the filter).

Checked the fuel pressure, 29PSI. I know that is it supposed to read 60-66. Tried replacing the fuel filter to see if it was just clogged up. Didn't work, reads the same pressure. So I'm guessing it'* the fuel pump. We're replacing that today. I'd hoped I wouldn't have to shell out $220.

Good luck. I assume you checked the fuel pressure regulator.

Final update: It was definitely the fuel pump. Soon as it was put in and the key was turned the pressure went straight to right around 60-62. Stuttered a second and then cranked right up. Thanks guys.
