Hi,
Replace the fuel filter as the fist action. Often this is charged for - but not done on a service, and if blocked will starve the engine. Just done mine after 3 years - would not believe the cr@p that was in it.

Try again.

If not much difference, check the fuel pump in the tank, and any cables to it.
If this fails, the engine needs to **** the fuel more - and can lead to starvation problems too.

Change the air filter every year, as this is cheap and will give you better MPG anyway.

You need to check spark plugs/wires/distributor cap.
Also good idea to check/replace fuel filter/air filter. It might be also bad fuel pump.
Good Luck

The truck is acting like it is starving for gas although i have alrready replaced the in tank fuel pump.


Have you checked to make sure the fuel filter isn't clogged (in fact, check all the filters). Sometimes it's really that simple . . .

Car dies after it warms up, no pressure in radiator when i remove cap, and acts like it's starving for gas


Some of the information does not correlate.

If there is no Pressure, then you Radiator Cap is Bad

Stalling or Starving for Gas can be a Fuel Pump or Air Filter

Remove the Air Filter and see what happens.

Test the PRESSURE of the FUEL System

I have to keep pumping the gas pedal to keep the engine running, it acts like it is starveing for fuel.then after it warms up a bit it will run at an idol. then when i step on the gas pedal it boggs down...


2 things to try-
first- change fuel filter(maybe this- is cheap)

second-more likely given what you said- partial melted catalytic converter-
when it warms up- passage expands enough to let it run a little

My 1996 Ford F150 Super Cab wont start without stepping on the gas pedal and when you put it into gear it dies..please help!!


I would check your fuel pressure at the motor on the fuel rail see if you are getting enough pressure. The fuel filter might be getting plugged causing lack of fuel. If it seems to get enough fuel just won't stay at the proper rpm throttle positioning sensor on the intake might not be working properly.

Truck acts like it is running out of gas? Replaced fuel filter. Ran fine for awhile but now still acts like it is starving for fuel.


my '93 f-250 (4.9L) stopped running while driving, now it acts like it isn't getting any fuel. Tried switching tanks, but still does the same. What would be the problem.

1995 F150 bucking and hesitating


look at the EGR valve.it should move freely..listen for hissing sound of an air leak,from the intake manifold...with that kind of mileage,it is likely .check the wiring on all the sensors,the map ,air flow,coolant temp,and the idle air speed controller on the throttle body.

1976 Ford F150 Bogs down when accelerater is pressed.


if it has a converter on it.....it may be stopped up, but before you replace it have the fuel pump checked, as it may not be getting enough gas at higher rpms. It will start and idle fine, but starve out when you press the pedal. Have you changed the fuel filter?That will cause the same problem.....
