Martha Galarty , Wisconsin - 1998 Chevrolet Van
This is the family van. Occasionally while driving, it will suddenly act like it’s run out of gas--stops moving, and kind of sputters. If she pushes the gas pedal to the floor and releases, it will jerk forward. Then, if they turn the car off and let it sit for a while, it will be okay. Tom and Ray think this is a classic failing fuel pump, but there’s also a small chance it could be a clogged fuel filter.
