There are many possible causes for this kind of problem.

1. Clogged fuel filter - just change your fuel filter
2. Dirty air filter - replace it or just clean it with compressed air
3. faulty throttle position sensor - this will be the extreme case but usually its just the fuel filter or air filter.
4. Used up fuel pump - its also possible that you fuel pump has given up
5. Bad spark plugs - check the spark plugs, see if they are still okay

How do I get fuel from fuel pump to carb on a 1994 Isuzu pickup truck after I install a new few pump?


The fuel pump is electric? It should feed the carb with a few pushes on the accelerator peddle with the key on. If not, try "starting fluid" available at local auto parts store. Comes in a spray can and you spray it into the top of the carb while someone else turns the key and pumps the gas peddle.

Why won't it accelerate?


You should have it check for diagnostic trouble codes stored in all the modules on the vehicle , ABS , BCM ,PCM . Doing this would probably give an insight to what is happening ! Most shops only charge 25 buck to do this ,you need to check around ! Stay away from pep boys they charge 90 buck ! Don't go to auto zone or any auto parts stores for that matter ,they just want to sell you parts !

Have diagnostic codes read at a local shop or auto parts store and go from there. noise in back is fuel pump, it's probably ok, most make a whining noise. Probably needs a complete tune up or some minor repairs. guessing will not help. have someone qualified help you.

Gas peddle won't produce rpm's. kind of a rough idle. Vehicle will move when put into gear and brake released but pressing gas does nothing.. (automatic)


did you check and see if the cable snapped for the accelerator, have someone push the peddle a few times and you watch to see if the accelerator lever that the cables connect to move if not they obviously broke and need to be replaced
