Try replacing the CTS coolant temperature sensor. Check for any vacuum leaks.

SOURCE: car stalled while running

Check under the back seat for an access panel to the pump. Might be the pump or just the level unit. Good luck.

SOURCE: 93 firebird formula wont start

A hall effect sensor senses a magnetic cylinder inside of a piston and sends an electronic signal to a processor. These are widely used in food/product packaging. I have a '93 formula myself and am unaware of any of these sensors on the car/engine.
Only thing I can think of is my firebird went through about 3 distributors in five years. So far the one in there now is running well. But you'll experience hard starts and stalls if this is tanking on ya.

SOURCE: fuel pump location 2001 pontiac grand am

The fuel pump is in the fuel tank.Sit in the car.....turn on the ignition switch to run.....listen very closely to the rear of the car...or have someone kneel down by the back wheel.....you should hear a "prime cycle"......the pump running for 2 or 3 seconds if the key was off for 15 seconds before trying this.If you hear silence you most likely need a fuel pump.Before pulling the tank down....check for power on the gray wire at the fuel tank connector just ahead of the rear axle under the car.Check for power with a test light that will last for 2 to 3 seconds as you turn on the key to run.Power means you really most likely need a pump.No power means you may need a fuse or a fuel pump relay.

If you take the fuel line off at the carb and crank the engine, does the pump push fuel out of the line ?

My truck sputters when i hit rough roads and when i press the gas pedal fast it hesitates


The cause of your Ford Ranger hesitating while pressing the gas pedal can be the fuel filter, change it first since its the cheapest, next would be bad spark plug boots cracked, or spark plug gaps to wide, then lastly dirty fuel injectors.-------------------------------------------autel ds708
