    I replaced my fuel pump 3 times and now the newest one only has 34k miles on it and it is dead once again. Is it me or is it the fuel pumps? I know that it will start and stay running for about 5-10 seconds before it stalls again. Hecho en Mexico could be the problem. I wonder. Another $600 because I have nothing better to spend my money on, this truck

I WOULD START WITH THE CHEAPEST WAY OUT. FIRST GET A CAN OF SEA FOAM FROM YOUR LOCAL PARTS STORE AND POUR IT INTO YOU GAS TANK, THIS WILL COST YOU ABOUT $9.00. IF THIS DOESN'T HELP TRY THE FUEL FILTER, AND THEN THE PUMP.

It's losing one of two things - fuel or electricity. I would check and or replace the fuel pump and fuel filter first.

1973 dodge 318 truck starts and drives fine until 35-40 mph then dies


Sounds like a fuel supply problem. Does it pop through the carberator as it it is dying, like a lean back fire? If you drove it up a hill would it die before 35 or 40 mph? If the fuel demand excedes the fuel supply the engine will die, but would restart after cranking the engine for awhile. Possibly a plugged fuel filter, fuel line, rotten fuel hose, ( sucking air ) or tired fuel pump. Hope this helps.

Engine idle troubles on ram 1500 V8


What is the engine code/s that are coming up?
Just state the digits that you see, I don't need the definitions. I would guess that it is a either a fuel or emission related problem. Possibly A broken vacuum line, MAP,EGR, IAC,EVAP, or so on. If by resetting the ECM, it makes the symptoms disappear. Then try to look at the readiness status. And as each system shows "COMPLETE", try to conclude which system may be connected to the low idle issue. The more you find the closer we should be able to get. Good luck.

1997 Camry - Possible Fuel Pump??


this is a dirty idle air control valve, clean it using the following procedure.
Here is the common cause of surges, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake

most of times stalling problems are related with crankshaft sensors have your crank sensor replace and see if this will take care of your problem
