Q: Engine starting, but stalling

asked by on

The engine starts, but will not stay running. I think it is the fuel filter, but I don't know where it is located.

The fuel filter is located on the frame rail near the fuel tank on the passenger side. The fuel pump may be having an issue with not supplying enough fuel pressure to the engine. Another possibility is that the filter itself may be clogged. I recommend having the fuel system checked to see if the fuel pressures are low by a certified mechanic in order to fix your stalling problem.
