91 Chevy S10

4 cylinder 1.9(?) litre (Dads truck) 5 speed manual tranny

While driving to work this morning, a few miles from home, I noticed a slight "surge" while downshifting, shifted into 3rd and was ok until 10 miles or so, when I downshifted for a stop sign and felt the same thing; however the truck eventually died and would not start for me. It feels like its not getting fuel and I'm not sure where to start. Has anyone experienced a similar problem that could possibly point me in the right direction?

simple things first, check fuel pressure. May have a bad filter, water in gas or bad pump.

Pumps are common on that vehicle. Check the fuel pressure and then power at the pump when the key is first cycled on.

Thanks for the posts - found water in gas. Being a transplanted Californian, I forget about the cold winters affecting fuel.

Thanks Again!
