Fuel coming out of the top of the carb usually means that the bowl float(s) are misadjusted or have sunk due to being filled with fuel, or the needle valve is not seating properly when the float rises with the fuel.

SOURCE: I have 1987 Mazda B2200 2.2 ltre, turns, fires, no fuel psi.

I had something like this before. There is a fuel saftey switch near the gas tank right by the rear end. Its a roll over sensor and mine fell off the mount and I guess the truck thought it was upside down :)

How long since a tune-up? Any applicable trouble codes? If engine issue and not tranny, I'd check for a blockage of some kind, fuel--air--exhaust. Something of that nature. Check throttle position sensor.

Which End Of Of Fuel Filter Connects To Manuel Pump On 1987 Dodge Dakota 6 cyl 3.9 ?


The filter should have three hoses. There should be an arrow painted on the filter showing the direction of fuel flow.
And you should be able to blow in one end and the air come out the other if direction is correct.
The line to the pump should be on the end without the extra hose.

You need to hone the accelerator pump well and adjust the throw of the pump rod as much as possible to get more fuel. Of course that is just a guess based on 100's of rebuilds i have done over the years. I have also found that Japanese carbs seldom turn out when rebuilt.

Where is the fuel filter for a 1987 Dodge dakota and the fuel pump.


The fuel filter is under the hood, center, upper engine area, above intake assembly, mounted in fuel line.

The fuel pump should be in the tank or on top of the tank. Trace your fuel line back once you find your filter and you will find it.

Truck stalls at 45 mph,gas runs out


sounds like the fuel pump is plugged up. measure the fuel pressure if you can. also would disconnect the fuel filter,and crank it for a few seconds ,draining the fuel into a clear container to see if it is contaminated.banging on the tank with a piece of wood may dislodge some stuff too.never run below 1/4 tank with an electric pump,as it uses the fuel to cool the pump.

dont take carb off, drain fuel from tank if you got bad gas, fill with good gas, pull fuel line off carb and turn on key if have electric fuel pump, this will clean out line. get a spray can of carb cleaner from auto store and spray carb. hook up fuel line and try to start, should clean out carb with fresh fuel
