Question about 1984 Ford F 150
I have a 84 ford f-150 2 wheel drive,think its a holley 4 barrel carburator, with a 5.8 liter motor.. when i go to start the truck i have to pump the gas like 30 times just to start the truck it then starts and runs for a bit untilo it seems it burns up what i pumped and then shuts right off. any ideas whats wrong would be greatly appreciated thank you and have a great day
Check the fuel filter, if ok, disconnect the fuel hose from the carb and ask someone to start the engine, if fuel comes from the disconected hose the problem is in the carb, if not, check the fuel pump.
Make sure before you disconnect the fuel hose to disengage the coil.
