I have a 1990 chevrolet sierra 1500 while driving it will sometime act as if it loses gas flow. it won't go dead it's still running if i ease off excellarator it responds it might do it again or if i'm...

I would go with the fuel pump and filter. If you keep the tank low the fuel pump overheats and does not last long. The gas in the tank is used to cool the fuel pump on all new cars. Filter first then pump. The only other item may be the TPS, Throttle position sensor which may not throw a code, On newer cars it can also be the gas peddle as it's fly by wire. The resistor goes bad. Easy to use a plug in to monitor the position of the peddle.

Ran out of gas. Car only runs for a couple seconds. Is the fuel line a pressurezed line?

Yes. There is a good chance that you picked some dirt or sludge off the bottom of your tank when you ran out. This can plug your fuel pump screen, located on the fuel pump inlet, or your fuel filter. Check your fuel pressure at the engine with a fuel pressure gauge. There is a port on the fuel line in the engine compartment. It will look like an oversized tire stem.

Freelander td4 power loss at 70mph

yeah, don't drive so fast!!!!...seriously i would do what has to be done anyway to start. change fuel filter, air filter, spark plugs, spark plug wires. these have to be done at some point if they haven't been.. if that solves your problem, if not look at fuel pump, injectors.u didn't say if it used to go faster, maybe there is a limiter.

Engine ****'s during accel. and tranny shutters.

Check the fuel filter. Replace at about 30k. It sounds like low fuel flow. Check air filter as well.

Acts like starving for gas

This is caused by some sort of fuel restriction within the fuel filter or, it could be a weak or failing pump as well.

I recommend changing the fuel filter and replacing the fuel pump. You can also benefit from replacing the spark plugs and wires. this will improve the performance of this vehicle.

If the engine light is illuminated, it is best to get the codes by running a diagnostic scan soon on the ecm.

Cuts out at 4000 rpm in neutral and bogs while driving

repair or, replace the MAP flap switch on your engine's intake tube this switch measures the air volume admitted into the engine so that the engine computer can adjust timing and, fuel injector speed.

1968 cadillac spits, spudders and shakes

This one has the old points and condenser system?
I have had condensers cause this same condition before but your comments of bad gas or carburetor needing work or replacement are very possible.
Is it a specific "timed" miss-fire or does it seem random.
Let me know.
