1985 f150 dies driving.

Truck dies while driving, after 5 min. will crank up, drive a bit further and dies again. No sputtering, no warning, just dies. Electrical is fine.

    When you say that the electrical is fine do you mean that in the no start condition you still have good spark? This problem sounds alot like ignition module /distributor pickup related. Carb or FI ?

I have a 1989 Ford f150 drive for about 30 minutes it dies out or stop and want crank for about an hour


I would unplug the gas cap when it stalls; if you hear a hissing sound, change the gas cap, because it builds up a vacuum in the tank.

My car is sputtering and dying. If I try to restart it, it will immediately go into sputtering/dying mode. If I wait a while an hour or so it will start up and drive fine.


When was the last time that the carburetor was stripped and cleaned? Also have you checked the fuel filter? Finally, the problem seems to come and go as the engine is run (and it gets hot) check that the fuel line and any electrical cables are well away from the hot engine as far as is possible.

1985 Toyota pickup 22r non cali emissions ( Drives then dies no fuel in carb)


I had a similar problem and it turned out to be the rubber fuel lines being old and cracked. The hoses would warm up and fuel would squirt out of the cracks. I had to replace three fuel line hoses and it has been running great ever since. Good luck.

Engine sputters then dies


sounds like your fuel pump is bad, it will sputter or be hard to start because there is no pressure. if it doesn't start have someone hit the fuel tank from the bottom while you try to start it, if it starts right up then you know you need a new fuel pump.
