Nothing happens when I press accelerator

Asked by Aug 17, 2014 at 11:59 PM about the 1997 Mercury Grand Marquis 4 Dr GS Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 1997 Mercury Grand Marquis. The car starts and runs at idle, but I cannot get any
fuel when I press the accelerator. The engine bogs a little bit but nothing happens, it
actually runs smoother at idle.  It had run just fine for the 140 miles prior until I slowed
down and turned off of the interstate.  I am thinking it is probably the fuel filter, but would
like outside input before I start tearing into it (or sending it to the shop)

Replacing the fuel filter is fairly easy, something you could do yourself if you don't mind a little fuel running down your arm, that would be the first thing to do and then see what happens.
