Question about 1988 Ford Econoline
IT'S AN 88 E-150 FUEL PUMPS AND FUEL FILTER ARE WORKING. IT RUNS FOR ABOUT 30 MINUTES AND THEN IT DIES AND IT WON'T START TILL NEXT DAY. AND THEN IT WOULD BE THE SAME THING ALL OVER AGAIN. THE IGNITION MODULE AND THE RELAYS AND THE FUEL LINES ARE GOOD TOO. BATERY IS NEW DISTRIBUTOR CAP AND ROTOR. I WOULD APRECIATE IF SOMEONE CAN HELP ME WITH THIS PROBLEM I HAVE HAD IT FOR 3 YEARS AND HAVE SPENT A LOT OF MONEY HUNDREDS ON DIFFERENT MECHANIKS AND THEY HAVEN'T FOUND THE PROBLEM. THANKS IN ADVANCE.....
Try leaving the gas caps loose for a test. If it stays running, then you have a vacuum in the tanks.
report results of test.
Also, other possibility is that fuel is getting hot in tank and vaporizing in fuel lines. Listen at fuel tank for vapor being forced through check valve in tank. WIll sound like a zazoo.
