There is a strainer in the pickup of the tank that gets clogged. Also there may be a filter along the frame rails, follow the fuel line and see.

It sounds like your problem may not be fuel. It could be the ignition coil, rotor or module. The fact that it quit right after you put fuel in the front tank is likely just a coincidence.

99 gmc wont start

check electric fuel pump operation ( located in the fuel tank ). Occasionally a fuel pump will burn out when running out of fuel, due to the fact the pump runs DRY for about 30 seconds till the fuel stops flowing out of the injectors, the engine quits, simultainously losing oil pressure which FINALLY shuts off the fuel pump. Sometimes TOO LATE. Hope this helps

1984 chevy luv 4-wheel drive desil, is there a rear fuel pump somewhere, our lines go directly to the injector thru additional filters for bio desil. ran out of gas but have been having trouble with trash...

if this is a 1984 vehicle then i would assume it has a lift pump on the side of the engine driven by the camshaft and this should have a primer lever on it ? Sorry never seen one of these motors as iam on the wrong side of the pond .Also this fuel tank is metal so a certain amount of rust will be inside and also muck from the bio fuel degrading so it may pay to drop the tank and swill it out with petrol .also if need be fit a rubber pump for priming .Sorry i cannot be more specific as never seen one .biofuel ? yuck if not used for 6 mths this stuff clags everything .
