Nice story
Can't guess at your vehicles issues
Be at the shop & see first hand what testing
is done & how the result were obtained
Smelling gas has nothing to do with a fuel pump,
unless the tank gasket leaks
Ask what tests resulted in that conclusion.

SOURCE: STUTTERS DURING ACCELERATION

throttle position sensor .. this lets the computer know just where your foot is on the gas .. It gets worn out in that position because that is where it is used the most. I would check it first then go from there... they are priced reasonable .. always start with the least expensive first then go from there. thanks Jerry holler if you need more

SOURCE: When accelerating the engine seems to stutter.

Try unplugging your Mass Air Flow Sensor (MAFS) - you'll find it on top of the metal body immediately after the air filter. I went through an 18 month ordeal - replaced fuel filter, fuel pump, dropped fuel tank and cleaned it, ran 55 gallons of fuel injector cleaner through the system - nothing! After reading some blogs on this car/engine, gave the MAFS unplug trick a try. The car instantly corrected itself (when you unplug this sensor, the engine control module reverts to factory default, allows sufficient fuel into the engine for unitterupted performance.) However, if this corrects your problem, it's only a temporary fix. Run it about 3 days - it you notice soot in the tailpipe, the factory default is running too rich. Replace the MAFS.

Can't add gas without the pump kicking off


Most cars today have a vent line coming out of the tank to let air escape as you add fuel, it usually terminates right at or near the filler cap. If this line gets kinked or clogged, the air can't excape as you fuel and the air push back is just like the tank is full, which is why the pump keeps cutting off.

My 1995 dodge ram 1500 will bottom out going up hills. When you accelerate at about 2.5 rpms it drops out and won't gain any power


Your fuel pump is not being supplied with adequate fuel pressure to deliver to your engine on an incline because of an obstruction in the fuel tank that changes from level to inclined. I have seen this on many vehicles over 15 years old mostly from rust, debris, and just plai bad gas. Have the fuel tank removed, cleaned and a new "Fuel Sock" (a sort of filter device made of a wire mesh) installed and the fuel lines blown out from front to rear. This should give you plenty of get up and go no matter what the angle your vehicle is in.

What are the signs of the fuel pump going out ?


No pressure measured on a gauge at the engine
Low pressure at the engine
Low volume from pump
Too much current draw from fuel pump motor
Bad pattern on oscilloscope of motor running
Pump seizes mechanically or electrically when driving,
then works again
Low fuel level & you ruin fuel pump
Check valve in pump drains down pressure
and hard to start after sitting

1998 Ford Expedition XLT Eddie Bauer truck kicks/stutters after I take my foot off accelerator at 70mph-why?


You need to have the engine control computer scanned for fault codes, if nothing shows then it is very possible you have a failing fuel pump.

Misses and sputters at certain throttle position


This sounds like the same problem I had with my 87 Jeep 2 door Cherokee Sport.
Thought I had to replace the Fuel pump yet when I went under and pulled it out of the side of the tank I found that one of it's vacuum or return line had fallen/poped off. After I pushed the rubber tube line back on it's metal tube and pushed and remounted the pump back in the tank. Started up and it never ran better at any speed. Yea!!!!!

I had a 1997 saturn it starts up fine sometimes and other times it doesn't. I had the fuel filter changed and the gas injector lines cleaned. Now it does start up a little better but is still not starting...


very likely it is the fuel pump when you push the gas pedal puts car in clear flood mode resets the pump check your fuel pump fuse make sure not a hairline crack in the fuse intermitantly letting current pass through
