Icon8 Check engine light problem! Help!

Hey Luders.
So I'm new around here and just getting into things luder wise as well.
But I've got this problem with my lude.
My CEL in on and atg 3500 rpms my cel blinks. When it gets low on fuel it likes to stall out, however when its ful on fuel it drives fine. Also it starts up and drops low in rpms then goes back up real quick. It also stalls out sometimes when I get on it for a little and then come to a complete stop..

Any ideas? I just put an afpr in it however the gauge on it doesn't work, so no way of telling if the damn thing even works.. before I pay my macanic to fix my fuel pump, just thought id ask around here.
????

Re: Check engine light problem! Help!

Change your fuel filter and don't run your gas tank dry.

Sounds like your car is crying for some long overdue maintenance.

There are tons of DIY here at PZ. Seek and ye shall find!

Good luck and welcome!
