    My 95 Tahoe has been giving me fits - we repair one thing and then something else goes wrong! Here's the latest issue that I'm hoping someone can help me diagnose: We just did tune it up, shortly thereafter, the rear end decided to go .... well, $1400 later, it now acts like it has no power. It's not really missing out - no valves chattering - it's almost like I got a tank of bad gas. When the motor is cold, it's not bad. When the motor warms up, it starts to 'bog down' - when I take off, at about 30 mph, and if I'm cruising in overdrive. If I run in Drive at a constant speed (65-ish), it doesn't do it. I checked eveything obvious to me - plug wires, vaccuum hoses, changed the fuel filter, etc. What else should I check? Is there something underneath that may have been unhooked while replacing the rear end that maybe didn't get re-connected? Being a woman and a driveway mechanic (out of necessity, not necassarily by choice) I appreciate any advise that any one can give me.

    Try replacing the fuel pump under the drivers door inside the frame rail, mine had this problem because the fuel filter was nearly completely stopped up...

    Fuel filter clog is a common problem that could lead to your issues. Give it a try and see what becomes of it.
