Starving for gas when the weather is hot

My s10 truck had tank-fuel pump replaced, it was acted like it was staving for gas then it would stall. just got it out of shop ran a dianostic and all that came up was o2 sensor and trans slipping. still is stalling when it gets hot, drove all winter over 5000 miles and didnt stall one time as soon as the weather got nice and warm, it shut off again. but if i set for 10 m-30 min. it will start and run again.

Hmmm sounds like ignition module under distributor rotor button is opening up when it gets hot.after cool down will restart suggest you replace it , it's fairly inexpensive and they are very prone to heat related failure.

Make sure you get a fuel pressure reading to know if you need to replace the fuel pump assembly...it should have 43 psi reading. If it is bad the fuel filters need replaced too. A fuel pump should never be ran lower that a quater of a tank because it kills the life of the pump, it acts as the pumps cooling system. Check for spark and see if there are any engine codes like a bad crank signal. Good luck

Car dies after it warms up, no pressure in radiator when i remove cap, and acts like it's starving for gas


Some of the information does not correlate.

If there is no Pressure, then you Radiator Cap is Bad

Stalling or Starving for Gas can be a Fuel Pump or Air Filter

Remove the Air Filter and see what happens.

Test the PRESSURE of the FUEL System

Hestitation almost to the point of stalling


I would focus on fuel delivery including fuel pressure. Any of the sensors would turn the check engine light on, but low fuel pressure would not. Fuel filter, problem with a line going to the tank, debris inside the tank blocking the pump, etc.

Runs for a while but then acts like fuel pump is not working we have replaced fuel pump and fuel filter it is getting gas from pump to motor but now it has quit agin


if it only happens below 1/4 tank this sounds like a fuel pickup problem in the tank or the fuel sending unit is off.the cheapest way to fix it is to keep the fuel level above 1/4 tank of fuel.

Acts like it has no gas


The electric fuel pump in this truck is inside the fuel tank, the fuel that the pump sits in provides cooling and lubrication for the fuel pump, when you run out of gas it is like running the engine out of oil, it damages the pump,You will need to remove the fuel tank and replace the fuel pump.

2002 Sunfire with 2.2 ECOTEC Car acted like it ran out of gas. Would crank, run roughly a few seconds, then again acted like it ran out of gas. The next day and the next 3 days it has performed...


have the fuel pressure and volume tested with a gage.this sounds and acts like a fuel pump problem.check the fuel filter as well and replace anyways.when it won`t start but cranks can you hear the fuel pump running.listen at the fuel filler neck with the gas cap off.if you can`t listen under the car at the fuel tank you should hear it running/if not hit the gas tank and if the car starts then the pump needs replacing.you should check to make sure you are getting spark at the spark plugs to eliminate an ignition problem but i think its fuel.

Truck acts like it is running out of gas? Replaced fuel filter. Ran fine for awhile but now still acts like it is starving for fuel.


my '93 f-250 (4.9L) stopped running while driving, now it acts like it isn't getting any fuel. Tried switching tanks, but still does the same. What would be the problem.
