my car will fun fine for a while and then all the sudden it will slow down and cut out and will barely go and then a little bit later it will kick back in and run fine again i changed the plugs but had no change. is there a fuel filter that may be getting plugged up or do you think it is electrical? 4cyl 2.0 fuel inj

does the check engine light come on? How is your fuel pressure? Change fuel filter to rule it out if it hasn't been changed in a while, could also be the pump or regulator. If you have no codes, change the filter, if it still does it, check the pressure and let us know what you find.

check the fuel filter. just remove it and try to blow thru it. should be almost no restriction in it. the filter is under the car buy the gas tank.

the check engine light does come on once the car kicks back in and starts to run better. i took off the fuel filter and tried to blow through it at first it was kinda hard to blow through and then got easier i blew through it with an air compresser and put it back on still no change
