problem NOT the filter might be the pressure regulator or the pump going out.

the whole thing is located IN the fuel tank located under the rear passenger seat.

when you see it, it's unlikely that it'll be clogged that bad. if it is WTF are you putting in your tank?

See this topic there. I'm having a similar propblem in my 02 GTS but it's intermittant. If the engine will rev in neutral to 8000 it's not the Computer, Ignition, or timing.

^^ responded to your thread wink

--------------------------------------

I have an AEM gen 2 and collected a lot of water on the freeway over a span of about 10 minutes. when I hit a bump coming onto my street the engine sucked up water sitting in the Intake manifold. but she's good as new now.

I will be doing a write up one of these days on how to deal with rain and a possible hydrolock situation. the album isnt finished just yet. there's around 60 pics total by the time I'm fdone loadin em all lol

I usually put the stock airbox back in when it rains alot. better to take a performance loss then to lose your engine rofl

I think its your 2 sensor going bad. I had this happen and I at first thought it was bad gas, then fuel pump. It was the O2 sensor. Cost about &125 for my dealer to replace it. It is easy to do yourself though...
