850 Fuel Starvation

1995 auto sedan-10 valve.Occasionally stalls when climbing hill and is hard starting(After about 3 cranks)If I park it on a slope with nose down it will start first go.

First thought is fuel pump has an attitude problem or filter needs replacing.There is plenty of fuel exiting the fuel rail with the Schrader valve depressed when the ignition is on and motor off.

Problem is intermittent and sometimes occurs on a level road after runnining for a while.

I would like to generate a list of other possible causes if my diagnosis -above-does not fix it.

Any Thoughts?

    Can't recall my old 10V but maybe FPR or filter?

    Other issues with old car I guess too.

  • OK Thanks mate. FPR good thought . I will replace both filter and FPR before I look at the pump.
