I am assuming that this is a NEW weber? If not, then suspect the float bowl settings (level too low, drop setting too high, bad needle and seat valve), or just too much dirt in it...
If it IS a new one, then disconnect to fuel line and run the pump into a quart glass container to check fuel delivery quantity... Hope this helps...;-)

How long since a tune-up?
If you think it is fuel issue, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure. There are some other tests you could try, but, too much liability, I can't be responsible for your safety.

Car stalls, starts up then stalls again, starts up and stalls again


This could have several problems. #1 Fuel pressure due freezing water in fuel lines add thermal aid or rubbing alcohol . If you have access to a pressure gauge there is a service fitting on fuel rail that you can test pressure while driving and see if the pressure is gone when car dies this could lead to fuel pump electrical or more restricted lines. #2 intermittent sensor failure Mopar uses 2 sensors to control spark and fuel lose one could lose spark lose the other lose injection with a scanner they call it C/C sync ok (cam/crank) if no then check for each parameters for display.# 3 relay controls ASD and FUEL pump for voltage drops.

What would cause my 1990 f250 to lose spark, power to fuel pumps and also power to fuel tank selector switch


One thing that would affect spark and fuel pump power is the EEC relay.
I would start with checking that.
The spout connector should be in the harness near the ignition module. Its a connector with a plug you remove to set base timing.

My 1990 vw golf starts, runs for 5 seconds, then stalls. It sounds like the fuel pump is working, the plugs are getting spark and the fuel is new enough. Pumping the gas pedal doesn't help to keep it going...


Checck the calibration of your fuel line. If this is perrfectly alright the fuel must be good enough too.
Then we turn to the electrics, check the spark, check the coil and the distribtuion. Clean all these points to check.
Use a tester for HT intensity.

I have a 1990 VW Golf II (Wolfsburg edition, 8 valve engine) with 155K miles. The car runs reasonably well, but the engine will stall when it is brought to an idle too quickly. Being a manual transmission,...


Start with the simple and replace the fuel filter, it's also a good thing to clean the throttle body with throttle body cleaner. Auto Zone will have the fuel filter and can give you the step by step instructions for you to replace the fuel filter with common tools. You can also ask for the step by step instructions for replacing the fuel pump if you think it's the pump has gone bad too. Good luck

Runs 5 minutes then dies. Won't start until engine is cold.


Try the WD-40 spray in intake of throttle body with air intake hose off, to see if it will kick at all, even for a second or 2. We need to confirm whether your losing fuel or spark when it dies. Ignition & fuel, can cause similar symptoms in this case.
