Fuel line clogged, Fuel filter clogged, fuel pump not working. Sounds like you have two of the three conditions needed for a running engine, spark ignition and air flow, the third component is fuel. You are manually feeding it, which means it is not getting on it's own. So, if you are not out of gas, check the fuel flow system. On that model you should be able to turn your key on and hear the fuel pump priming the system before you turn it all the way to start. Hope this helps.

Sounds like a large vacuum leak,low fuel pressure,fuel pressure regulator failure, idle air control valve stuck open,plugged fuel filter.Also check for good consistent blue spark at spark plugs or jumped timing chain.Hope this helps!

Is it an engine with a carburetor? If so, I can help with this information:

SOURCE: I have a 87 ford ranger and i put a fuel pump in

there are 2 fuel pumps, a low pressure in the tank and a high pressure on the frame rail. the high pressure pump is probably bad. Check your relay and inertia/cut off switch first.

SOURCE: 1998 subaru outback started sputtering and now

It could mean a number of different things... faulty maf or map sensor, throttle position sensor, fuel injector leak, etc.
Is there a check engine light on? I would be happy to further assist you if you were interested in diagnosing it yourself.

91 ford ranger custom v6 3.0 it run great for about 20 mins. then it starts spitting n spuddring when u give it gas wat can be wrong with it ?


Check ignition module under throttle body. Fords have history with the module, on older engines getting hot, then causing the the spark to stop. This may be the case if the truck starts again only after the engine cools. If so, possible bad module.
