    Unhappy 02 Suburban Engine lost power shut down when it is in Low rmp

    Any advise, what was the above cause was? tow it home last night, lost power on the freeway exit and stepping on gas pedal but rpm is low and engine shake with very little power.
    Try to start it this morning, engine shake and vibrate on low rpm and shut off.

    Sounds like low fuel pressure. Fuel pump, filter, pressure regulator.

    Thanks for advise, took it to the mechanic this morning, fuel pump need to replace. I bought it brand new and it had only 98k miles on it, is it normal wear and tear?

    That seems to be about right for that year range. It's a good time to do all the other normal stuff. Filters, maybe plugs etc.
