Changed fuel pump and inline filter,starts like its flooded and will run at high rpm,but surges at low rpm then dies like its flooding out,dont know what to do,could it be fouled plugs?

Any applicable trouble codes? Clean the throttle body and idle air system. Check for vacuum leaks.
I don't know year--make--model?
If a fuel problem, use a fuel pressure gage, check for correct pressure, then with key off, see if the pressure holds for a bit. If pressure drops like a rock then check for fuel pressure leak.

97 nisson pathfinder won't start some times after sitting over night.

The next time this happens have a can of spray starting fluid handy (available from any hardware or auto parts store), spray it into the air intake of the engine if it starts you most likely have a sticking in tank electric fuel pump problem.

diesel engines high pressure pumps not suppose run dry.diesel fuel keep high pressure pump cool and lubricated.problem could be fuel pressure regulator in the fuel filter water separator housing.replace fuel filter see if it helps problem could be fuel pressure regulator in fuel filter housing, the fuel pressure regulator has a air bleed orifice that allows vent to the fuel tank.make sure fuel pump fuse okay pump getting power. i would let garage or dealership check it out if all fails because your diesel engine fuel timing is pcm controlled if let fuel system go dry you probably have to have fuel injection timing reset or could have damage high pressure pump letting it run dry i hope thats not the case because high pressure pump not cheap part i hope it not that.

1998 gmc jimmie 4.3, 2 wd. wont start. getting no gas at the fuel bleeder valve. has new fuel pump and new fuel filter. started and ran fine after new pump and filter install. drove 15 miles and parked all...

Check to see if fuel is getting to the filter. Maybe too much dirt in lines & plugged filter? If fuel at filter, put hose in place of filter JUST LONG enough to see if fuel is getting to fuel rail.

Starting for a second or two is quite possible that the passlock system is causing it. I've seen this happen before. There are a lot of videos on youtube about bypassing this system. Have a look. bypass GM anti theft YouTube

Wont stay running

hi, i need to know something about your car in order to help you.
does your car have a distributor or 2 coil packs under the manifold.
there is 2 different problems.
i think your prob is your fuel pump breaking down under load, its common, get back to me 1st with my question before u do anything.

Losing power and died. im thinking fuel pump.

when you first cycle the key on (without starting the vehicle) the fuel pump turns on for about 3 seconds. You can usually hear a buzzing noise coming from the fuel tank area, sometimes you need to be right next to the fuel tank to hear it because it's quiet.

Also, if your vehicle starts, that means the fuel pump is working. It could however fail during driving; if (for example) your fuel pump does not have sufficient volume output to run your vehicle at a higher RPM.

There could simply be a clog, or restriction somewhere in the system (most likely fuel filter) If you have not changed fuel filter recently (or within about 7000 miles) you should do so, they are pretty cheap (compared to a few hundred for a pump)

Also, keep in mind there are several other things that could happen to cause the exact same thing. So don't buy a fuel pump until you are sure.
