Check fuel pressure. Your fuel pump could be at fault. Did you install your fuel filter correctly?

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

Ford Escort (1993) (EFi engine) starts, then stalls.


The fuel pump in the petrol tank has a sock that acts as a coarse filter. This sock gets clogged with muck causing the car to starve of fuel intermittently and lead to the stalling as you've described. If you pour in some injector cleaner (contains detergents) or methylated spirits it may just fix the problem. Condensation (water) in the fuel creates a slimy goop that clogs filters. It worked for me and my 1992 Daihatsu Charade, and have heard that other cars with similar symptoms have been cured in the same way, usually after expensive repairs have already proved unsuccessful . A cheap solution really! Try this first. Good Luck.

Did you do all the basic stuff ? Tune-up, fuel filter air filter, inspect wiring- If you are working on this yourself, really take a G O O D look at everything you can get access to.

My truck acts like it is starving for gas


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
