Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I've changed fuel pump, screen, fuel sending unit, plugs, wires, fuel filter, O2 sensors, throttle position sensor. I don't know what else to do and am about to give up.

It sounds like the catalytic converter is plugged up in the exhaust.


I hollowed it out, that's not it. I also replaced the EGR valve.


It sounds to me the injectors are bad. Runs fine till you hit the gas. Try that and let me know what happens. I had a s-10 do the same thing


The fuel injection spider on top of the engine is bad or it may have jumped one notch out of time.
