95 OBS Sputtered and Died
I was driving home today and noticed I was having to put more and more throttle into my truck to keep my RPMs and speed up. By the time I got to a parking lot 100 feet down the road I was flooring it and she was barely staying on. Halfway into the parking lot it sputtered and died as if it ran out of fuel. Both my tanks are completely full and I even switched tanks when it was sputtering to make sure. I had a spare fuel filter so I changed it out and it fired right up but as soon as I pulled back out onto the road it did it again. I'm thinking maybe a bad tank of fuel (I've been cranking it with the other tank selected and drained the fuel bowl a few times, no luck) or the fuel pump I replaced 1.5 years ago died.
Any suggestions? I took a personal day tomorrow and HAVE to fix it tomorrow or I can't get to work and this is my only vehicle. Thanks!
Edit: I might also add that it cranks real strong so it doesn't seem to be electrical to me. And fuel bowl empties out a good amount each time I empty it so it seems like it refills.
Thanks and Gig 'Em!
