Try changing the fuel filter but use the repair manual to depressurize the fuel system before attempting the replacement,gas in the eyes is dangerous and painful. I suppose you could let the car sit for 4-5 hours and it will be safe to change out the filter.

2004 kia sorenta, cranks fine but after a few miles act as if running out of gas. Turn it of and recrank and it will run for a short minute then does again


Have fuel filter changed if it has one. If not it get a shop to check fuel pressure at the fuel rail on engine. If it is low your fuel pump is going bad.

My 1995 ford explorer looses power after 40 minutes of driving. I turn off wait for 10 to 15 minutes then resumes again.


Bummer deal! Sounds like the fuel filter is clogged. My motorcycle did the same thing and a new filter and a special kind of additive treatment restored its like new power - though 15 years old. The product from Mega Power is listed below and can be ordered on line. Its made for cars - and a motorcycle works exactly like any car does. Rarely, a fuel pump going dead will overheat and stop. Then restart. You can change the filter. A mechanic can check out the gas pump - Hope this helps. DIY fuel injector cleaners fast acting Ends several tune up problems

Yes it's likely the fuel pump. If that was the first time the filter was changed and it really needed it, it usually causes the pump to fail. It's in the gas tank.

My 1988 Ford Bronco 5.0 has been stalling / acting like its run out of gas. (Has always run great before) I know it has plenty. Today 7.28.10 It stalled twice, first time it did it had at least 1/4 tank,...


You might have what is called vapor lock. The fuel gets so hot that it boils in the fuel pump or the lines. Do this test spay water on the fuel pump to cool it off . ( this only works for a few minutes before it gets to hot and vapor locks again ) If you can Keep the engine heat Off the lines and the Fuel pump it might help. If you have metal fuel lines near a heat source rap them with something such as rubber fuel line sliced down the middle to keep the heat off them If you are using an aftermarket electric fuel pump relocate it down low near the gas tank ( they work better pushing than pulling ) away from any heat source such as exhaust If your using the stock fuel pump try replacing it with a new one it might be getting weak Replace the fuel filter while your at it.

My 94 jeep grand cherokee limited acted as though it was running out of gas then it died however it had plenty. now it starts some of the time and only stay running for a short while.


Sounds like a classic bad fuel pump...When the pump begins to fail, it overheats and binds. After a short wait, it cools off and runs again. However, a bad filter can often do the same thing. Replace the filter (good maintenence) and if the problem continues, change the pump.
