Bad Fuel Pump?

Hello Austin.
I was wondering if you could help me. My car starts fine idles ok but when you try to give it gas it wants to spit and sputter like it isn t getting gas. I have already changed fuel filter, pump inside tank, computer on fender well .and still no luck at figuring it out. All vacuum lines seem ok any help would be great.
Thanks, Rod

Hi there Rod,

Do you think you have an engine misfire? I would replace the spark plugs AND the spark plug wires, and if you have a distributor, I would replace the distributor cap and ignition rotor as well. If things look ok there, I would probably check compression on each cylinder and rule out any internal engine damage like a blown head gasket.
