Help, Possible Fuel Pump Problem?
Hi, let me just start by saying that i am new here and relativly un-informed when it comes to cars. I drive a 2008 SS Cobalt and this morning i pulled into work and SLIGHLTY hit a curb going no more then a few mph head on (id say 5 MAX). My car then slowly began to idle lower and lower until it died. Now i can start it but it revs up then dies. I let the gas run to just about Empt and this morning before all this happened put a few bucks in on my way to work and had about 1/8th of a tank. I KNOW this was stupid to let it run so low. I am not sure if my hitting the curb had anything to do with it as i have done some research and it seems that my fuel filter may be the culprit or (hopefully not) my fuel pump. I have 28k miles on it and live on a dirt road (which i have heard can cause the fuel filter to need changing alot sooner then normal). Any insight or help would be greatly appreciated.
