What part of the country are you located in? is it hot in that area alot? see if you can follow your fuel lines if they are not inside of a frame rail from the fuel tank forward. you could wrap your fuel line once it comes out of the rail going to the fuel distribution area of the motor. it might be to close to a heat source which boils the fuel before it get to atomized.

1972 olds 98 455ci starts and runs fine when its cold but once i've driven it for awhile it starts sputtering like its running out of gas


sounds like a vapor lock. older cars needed a set of points . they kept firing times in sync with fuel delivery , valves opening/closing try that.

1978 monte carlo would not start until i blowed air back toward gas tank.. starts but wont stay cranked,,,,run rough and wont idle,,then shuts off. changed sparkplugs and wires..took off distributor and...


Sounds like vapor lock in the gas tank. I would try replacing the gas cap before doing anything else.

Sometimes the only solution is the easiest and last thing you try.

A vacuum hose brokegoing into carb. cut some exses off car started but stalled again. got a new vacuum hose on it but now the car turns over but wont start?


Possible vapor lock, try using some starter fluid, spray just a touch in carb. Another thing, is keep gas pedal to floor, and trying to start. Do not pump pedal, just keep to floor as you crank over motor.

Truck after engine gets hot starts sputtering


You're getting a condition known as "vapor lock" or hydrostatic lock. This happens when you run your fule lines too close to a heat source (exhaust, engine, etc). You can solve it by re-routing it away from those heat sopurces...this should help.
