[DML] RE: Strange acceleration problem

Can someone explain to me how a bad fuel filter can cause hesitation and  
back firing only when the engine is cold? 

D² & 6530


Before you try to trouble shoot the fuel injection I would  suggest changing
the fuel filter. That corrects the symptoms you describe  more than half of
the time. Do you know when it was last changed? A bad CPR  won't allow you to
accelerate at all for a few minutes with a cold engine so  I doubt it's that.

Here is something ponder over. When I start my car  after sitting for
the night it starts up fine. When I give it gas to get out  of my
driveway and up the street, I notice I lose acceleration. I then  here
a slight backfire in about 3-4 quicks pops. After this the car  runs
fine and I don't get it again until the next day after  sitting
overnight. Any thoughts on the cause of this?  Thanks!
