So I was in my way to work this morning. The car was up to normal operating tempature so I eased on the throttle to get on the interstate then its like the car lost power for a slight second then regained normal power. So then tried the same practice again going wot around 65 MPH and same effect. So any suggestions fellas I'm leaning toward the fuel filter.
I would say not the fuel filter. Your fuel pump is going to push the amount of fuel you need. But, if its clogged with something maybe. But then I would think it would do it all the time. I know expert, just throwing my $.02 out there. Fuel filters are like $15 so it couldn't hurt. I change mine every 15,000 or so.
I just went through this routine, the fuel filter was not the problem, I had poor gas and the Cat was clogged. Sounds like gas is fine which would lead me to believe that your cat is clogged. Im not a mechanic but I couldn't figure it out. If its any incentive to get the car replaced my car is running like %25 better , stonger, and quicker with the new car. It will improve your preformance if youve had a plugged up cat for a while.
