1999 MERCURY VILLAGER BOGS WHEN GOING UP HILL WHEN ONLY 1/8TH TANK OF GAS FILLE IT UP AND THEN STILL BOGGED FOR ABOUT A MILE THEN QUIT BOGGING WHAT CAUSED THIS


when a tank is empty there is no fuel for the pump and the system runs low on fuel pressure Going up hill the fuel runs away from the pick up line and the pump sucks air
After filling it takes a while to empty the air out of the system to allow full pressure again. It is an extremely costly practice to run so low on fuel as it may lead to a pump replacement

My 1988 dodge ram custom 50 I think is having fuel pump problems. It chokes going mainly up hills. or could it be the fuel filter?


There are fuel lines inside the gas tank. Over time they can rust causing them to break or leak. You have one of two options, first you can pull the tank and replace the line. The second option is to keep the gas tank fuel level above the leak. And the fact that this happens mainly when going up a hill, suggests the leak is lower in the tank. All the gas shifts to the rear of the tank and exposes the leak. NOTE: The leak is probably just above the level you usually keep the tank filled to. So if you keep it at 1/4 that's where you'll find it etc....

Car ran great,till one day on way home,ran out of gas,got more and about 5 miles or so,car started choking and cutting out,then it would start running normal ,well next morning on my way to work,ran fine...


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. If I were you, I would check the fuel pressure and check for spark. Make sure the fuel filter is not clogged and make sure you don't have a bad fuel injector. Your fuel pump could be going out also. Ev en though it appears to be fuel related, it may be s problem due to bad plugs/coils, wires, distributor cap, rotor, coil packs. Go ahead and check all your fuses to be safe. Once you test for spark and fuel pressure, you will know which way to lean. I am sure that one of them are off a little. If not, it may be something electrical. I believe it is fuel related, so start there.

98 gmc jimm 4x4 4.3l v6 replaced plugs, wires and distributor cap and rotor. Still getting P0304 code and rough idle. Higher rpms flatten out roughness but take off feels off. Any help??


spray carb/choke cleaner all around intake gasket mating surface on heads. (while motor is running) If rpms change you have a bad intake gasket.

It loses power on acceleration and serious loss of power on hills


sounds like a clogged fuel filter. you need to have the engine pressure checked for leaks, you can rent the pressure checker at autozone, it connects to ur radiator and u pump pressure into the cooling system if u find water leaking around the head u know u have a blown head gasket. if ok then check the cylinder compression should beable to rent this also. it screws into the spark plug holes has a gauge on it. alternator problem w/ the light is probaly you need to tighten the belt.hope this helps!!!

Loss of power when driving up hill


It depends: how steep are the hills? Assuming you have the standard 4-speed or 5-speed gearbox, it's likely that the tiny engine (built for economy, not for power) is simply not generating enough torque to pull the car up in high gear. Have you tried simply downshifting? If the problem truly is the engine losing power and not just lugging due to being in too high a gear on a steep grade, you should check your fuel pressure and you may also want to check the condition of the fuel pump and feeder lines inside the gas tank. A 20 year old car will probably have some disintegration of the feeder lines, they may even be partly broken off inside the tank resulting in poor fuel flow, or disintegrated rubber may be gumming up the strainer or the pump itself. Personally, I'd replace the fuel lines, fuel filter and if low pressure still exists, the fuel pump as well.

Car died and wont start


The fuel injector motor or called the Idle Air control module is not the failure. The fuel pump is overheating and dies out. Thus when letting sit a while the engine is starting up again.
I woult take vehicle to local shop and have them replace the fuel pump , I suggest not getting taken for a complete tune up. Just the fuel pump is the most cost effective way .

Will Not idle when sitting up hill.


If the car is facing up hill at an idle, it may be that the fuel pump is located on the front of the fuel tank.

I would suggest either trying to park the car facing downhill, or having a full tank of gas when parking the car.

Thank you for your question, and please let me know if there's anything else I can help with.
