It's always bad to let the fuel system dig into whatever lies at the bottom of the tank. You have fuel.. or something.. getting to the motor but I suspect that the carburation system has got some serious issues.
Not being inclined to mess with these, I would give call my favorite mechanic up and take it from there. If you are mechanically inclined, you might entertain getting a carb rebulid kit.
If this machine is fuel injected the injectors or some other part of the system may be clogged.
Good luck.

SOURCE: not getting fuel ,cracked open fuel lines on motor


The fuel filter is o the LH chassis rail.

Also it will take about 30min to swap out the fuel pump which is in the tank. But get the fuel pressure checked first then look at replacing it.

Let me know if you need more information.

SOURCE: Starting problem, VZ commodore V6

Hey mate, I have the same problem. Try switching that relay with one of the other relays first to see if its that.
I have a suspicion that it might be ignition related as I though I smelt unburnt fuel in the exhaust. I could be wrong though.
Im going to have a look today, and will let you know how I get on.

SOURCE: 97 f350 5.8 disconnected fuel line from tanks to inline filter turn on key pump runs momentarily then shuts off only supplying small amount of fuel from either tanks

Generally speaking, its supposed to do that.
The fuel pump(s) is powered by a relay that turns on for 3 seconds when you turn the key on. If the engine does not start and produce oil pressure, thats all the power the pump gets. If you were in a wreck the pump would shut off when the engine dies even with the key on to prevent a fire.
You would need to jumper the relay to make the pump run beyond the 3 second time.
