Could be a fuel pump, a fuel filter or even a dirty fuel tank( on the inside of course). It depends on how long it runs too.

I have a 1990 daihatsu applause. It has not power. The only thing that works is the hazard lights. Battery is good and all the fuses are good.

Have you run a fault code test to see if any thing shows up? You will need to know how to run an OBD1 test, it may require a special tool, not sure due to age of the vehicle

Truck start up run great couple minutes then shut off let set few minutes then crank up run great 30 second shuts down like you cut key off let set few minutes crank right back run fine then dose same

Sounds like it is running out of fuel. Maybe a bad fuel pump, or clogged filter. If it is carbureted, a stuck float valve or clogged float valve might be the problem.

Telling us year, make and model would allow us to help you more.

My 92 tempo gl smokes like crazy when i first start it and some times runs rouhg for the first mile then clears up and then drives fine???

The valve stem seals are probably shot, if it is blue smoke-oil burning. What happens is when you shut the car off, oil slips down past the bad seals and pools around the valve seat. Soon as car is started, that pooled oil goes into the cylinder. When you shut the engine off, oil under the valve cover will do the same thing again-it will pool around the valves because of the bad stem seals. A repair manual can tell you how to replace the seals without pulling the head off. An air compressor is necessary to keep pressure in the cylinder, so the valve won't fall down into the cylinder.

I have a 91 chevry lumina 3.1 v6 i put and new fuel pump and filter and relay and check the coils they are fine i can start it it will run for about 5 mins and stops then restart fine and dose it again...

You've done well by ruling out the most likely things first. You need to next check the condition of the "ignition module". When this module starts to heat up, if bad, it will cause the engine to shut down rather quickly.

I think my timing chain jumped time my truck died going down the road kinda like it bogged down then just stopped running and it wont start back when u try to start it it will turn over for couple seconds...

well first off you need to start by checking the compression on all 8 cylinders!!!! to rule out internal engine failure as oppose to jumped timing. its very rare that timing chains will jump especially a double roller chain. get a compression gauge take the plugs out and get a reading on all the cylinders. you should be no more then 10-20psi difference from cylinder to cylinder. but on the chevy motors if there is a problem they usually show well on a compression test! good luck post back up the results then we can go from there.

Will not start I ran a code reader and it came back as p300 random misfire

Realy PO3001 would not keep the engine from starting its a misfire on # 1 cylinder that coudld be a lot of differant things or it could be nothing. Simply driving down a bumpy road could set that code off the crankshaft tends to slightly wipe on these engines or if one wheel comes off the ground for a split second the VSS sensors will give a false siginal to the VCM. Your going to have to tell me some more like dose the engine crank over can you smell gas dose it back fire or fire at all or is it just dead in the water nothing happens at all when you turn the key do you have lights. Get back to me and well see if we can figure it out i've got the manuals to do it

My path finder only reaches 100 kilometeres per hour and drives real sluggish, what is most likely to be the problem?

Dose it run on all cylinders or run rough when idling or jerking when taking off or engine getting hotter than it used to, when going from gear to gear dose it pull as good as before,do you use any oil in 1000 km's or coolant ,dose the exhaust blow black smoke or blue smoke .
IS IT A DIESEL as all these things come in to it plus air filter bunged up ,air leak in intake manifols ,fuel filter or fuel pump needs checking and or replacing ,.
Without seeing it we can only say what it could be.
So let me know how you get on.

Sudden loss of power while driving

One thing you should notice that could tell you if the the engine is misfiring is that the check engine light will flash. If it dose it is saying you have a misfire in either one or more cylinders. If the check engine light dose not flash then it could be more of a fuel pump related issue. but as I said 1st thing would be to check the code... then i could tell you whats going on. good luck
