    2000 Escalade, loss of power and runs horribly

    2000 Escalade, 115,000 miles.

    On the way home yesterday, hour and a half trip, it started running horribly all of a sudden. Had hardly any power and we had to drive on the shoulder because at times we couldn't keep the truck over 25mph.

    There is no check engine light. The truck will run perfectly, and then cut out and start shaking and having no power. If you let it sit and idle for a minute, it will start running normally again, and then you can drive for a few minutes and it will be fine. Then the sputtering and shaking start all over again and you have to either pull over or really try hard to keep the truck going at about 45mph.

    Any ideas? I believe the guy said it happened to him once before but the truck actually stalled and wouldn't restart.

    Also, the fuel gauge is all over the place. It will go from the actual level of fuel straight to empty, then back up for a few seconds, and straight back to empty. It does this constantly whether the car is running correctly or not.

    Sounds like it's time to replace your fuel pump. I would replace the filter as well
