Re: TRUCK GAVE ITSELF GAS THEN DIED RESTARTED AFTER...
The only thing that i could think is wrong here is the cars computer or the ingectors migh be that the ingectors are staying open for to long and its giving it to much gas so its chocking the sparkplug this is all i could think of since u replace everything else that could be giveing u problems with the gas

I have a 1999 Yukon it died on my way to work I thought I was out of gas because my fuel gage stop working. I put gas in it and ever stared. Next day it stared up and died a block down the road. Fuel pumps turns on 'put gas into choke and it gust turns and turns . I see that I'm not getting spark no were not out of the distributor and other stuff that makes cars spark I change distributor cap and button fuel filter and no spark what can it be need of help bad ty Steve frommpeoria I'll.
Some possible solutions (from general experience (i'm 55 yrs old)): 1. Plugged up fuel filter; Replace it. Part costs less than $10.00.If the filter is just in front of the tank, it should take a screwdriver and 15 minutes or less to swap. 2. Water in the fuel tank; Add a bottle of "Heat" to the tank. Cost ~ $3.50 or less. This next may require some trouble shooting or head scratching first. DO #1 & #2 First. (Won't hurt & Doesn't cost much) 3a. Partly clogged fuel line. 3b. Cracked fuel line. (Sucks air into the fuel line) Depends where the fuel pump is.(Also look for fuel leaks, especially around hoses in the fuel line.) 3c. Clogged carb.Filter (if it exists). Verify fuel delivered to Carb by disconnect @ Carb. attach small hose to catch container then turn on (NOT Start) ignition.Should hav a steady flow of fuel for at least several seconds. If so, Replace carb. filter. 4. Weak/ failing fuel pump. Major pain but backyard mech can do it with helpmay take half a day.May need to have a few empty gas cans available to save the existing fuel.. Replacement In-Tank pump assembly should be less than $50.00.
I have seen this type of problem before, this sounds like the engine is not getting the correct amount of fuel pressure it needs as you accel.the first thing is to remove the fuel filter and replace it, take the old filter and blow into it, this will tell you if its restricked. the next step will be to check fuel pressure, you will need a gauge for this test, hook up gauge at valve on the injector rail, take caution wear safty glasses as fuel is under pressure and will spary out a little as you connect line for the gauge to fuel injector rail valve, you will run the engine and also step on gas pedal as you watch the pressure, i would rev the engine to around 3000rpms and hold it to see if engine tries to stall or buck when it begins to act up look at the gauge and if the pressure drops as it starts to act up then the fuelpump is bad. its not able to keep up the pressure. start there good day.
change the filter first. IF the pumpwas bad it wouldnt start at all. It could be going bad but the only way to really test it is to pull your gas tank and at that rate you may as well replace it.
you could have a clogged injector causing the lack of fuel as well. you can try injector cleaner, Lucas is my personal preference I use it at every fill-up. 4-6oz per tank of gas depending on your tank size.
hi i have a 1997 chevy tahoe that starts but won't stay running i have changed fuel pump, fuel filter,relay ,spark plugs, and just changed rotor and dis. cap ready need some help to figure this out please.
sounds to me like your having a air leak... my hose on my tahoe had a tiny pin leak in it and it did the same thing... check the small hose that goes from the air filter to the head of the motor... that was where mine was if not, check your o2 censor...
