Change the fuel filter. You probably picked up some stuff in the tank. The fuel pump may need to be pulled out to clean the screen as well. You can also pull the battery cable off for a few hours to reset the computer if the check engine light came on. It may be in limp mode

well hope fully your injecter are not plugging up because thats what it sounds like all it takes to plug it up a spec of dirt in the right spot

these are good suggestions, the only other thing I can say is that you might have toasted your fuel pump. they don't like to run dry. fuel lubricates and cools them. if it was original or older pump, one time running it out of fuel could do it in.

if it is cold enough you could have ice in the line. Drag it in and warm it up

Ok, I replaced the fuel pump and in line filter and it's still doing the same thing. Will run like it's running on one cylynder if the pedal is the whole way down. If I let off the pedal it dies. Anymore clues?

Clogged injectors? Is the check light on?

I pulled the front 3 plugs they looked fouled. Cleaned them up and tried again. Same results. If injectors are dirty how do I clean them?

They have a machine they can hook it up to that'll clean them out but thats a 50/50 chance it won't be good enough
