It may need to have the fuel injectors cleaned, try a good brand, like lucas. Could be water in the fuel, try a gas line dryer.

Do you have to take the tank out to replace the fuel pump?

Although I have never personally removed the fuel tank from a 1999 Chevy Lumina, on most sedans you must first RELEASE THE FUEL PRESSURE FROM THE FUEL SYSTEM (follow standard safety precautions in doing so)*, hoist the vehicle on a lift, position a support under the tank, then undo the two fuel tank straps to free the tank. Once the tank is free, CAREFULLY maneuver the tank out of place, and disconnect the pressure line, return line, gauge lines, and vapor line from the top of the tank, before lowering the tank fully from the vehicle. It is also recommended that you siphon as much fuel out of the tank before proceeding to reduce the weight of the tank.

* A good way to relieve the fuel pressure in the system is to either remove the fuse for the fuel pump or disconnect the inertial switch in the trunk so that the fuel pump cannot engage. Once you have disabled the fuel pump, start the vehicle. Once it stalls and cannot be restarted, the pressure has been relieved from the fuel system. NOTE: You will need to cycle the ignition key several times after you have finished your work, in order to restore fuel system pressure, prior to being able to restart the vehicle.

When I try to put fuel in my 04 f150 it kicks the fuel system over flow on the gas pump

Don't put the fill nozzle in all the way... pretty common problem.... fuel vapors come out the neck fooling the nozzle into thinking gas is overflowing. Not only is it annoying, but the vapor recovery system in the pump is actually sucking gas (vapors) from your tank, essentially robbing you of gas. Always try to fill when temperatures are cooler, like early morning or night, to reduce vapor recovery.

I have an intermittent problem with engine power loss/lack of acceleration in my 1999 chevy Lumina. 3.8 L vin K. problem only develops on warm/hot days after sitting in standstill traffic idling for long...

Normally that would be classic vapor lock. But I don't know how that could happen since fuel injection recirculates so much? I try to think of how gas tank vent valve could do this and also draw a blank. Leaving the fan. It is electric and possibly not working? It is mechanical and have a bad clutch?

My 1999 toyota camry turns over well but wont start. new fuel filter, fuel pump works good.

Are you one of those people who TOP OFF the tank when filling up?

When the EVAP recovery system soak with few ounce of gasoline......the trap vapor will take few days escape.

EVAP system is design to handle fuel vapor. Few ounce of gasoline can damage the fuel vapor recovery relay and decrease the service live of the recovery lines.


You can accelerate the process by locating the charcoal canister (near the nose of the car and same side as your gas filler door)

MOVE the car to outdoor.

Disconnect the EVAP line and let it air out by itself.

DO NOT introduce any heat source or fan to speed up the process.

Reconnect this EVAP hose and use a small amount of starting fluid at the intake manifold.

Please post more information by Clicking on the comment link.

I will follow up.

Sounds as if your vapor recovery system is plugged, although you should have a trouble code if you have this problem. Go to an Autozone and have them pull your codes for you.
