You have a faulty TPS (throttle position sensor). It controls the idling speed for all conditions i.e.cold, warm, AC on It's not uncommon for a TPS to work perfectly under one condition and fail under another for instance, it will idle fine when cold but once it warms up you need a foot on the gas to keep it running. Best of luck with your problem.

My 2001 Chevy Cavalier acts like it is not getting gas, a new fuel pump and fuel filter and line was put on and it quit again on me, another fuel pump, spark plugs or points was put on and still will


Check your lines, specifically where your filter housing goes into the fuel tank. I had the same issue and I just had to replace that filter along with a hose. It seems the line somehow got clogged. I hope you find this helpful.

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.

Replaced the fuel pump in 1988 ford f250 and the engine still seems to not be getting fuel


follow fuel lines from gas tank to engine are any lines crushed. next replace fuel filter. check to be sure fuel filter is installed in right direction. arrow on fuel filter should point toward engine. double check that fuel lines are connected properly, some fuel pumps have three fuel lines one for pressure , one for return and one vent line.last possible bad fuel pump from factory

2000 1500 Sierra will not stay running step on gas act like its running out of gas. Popped top fuel line gas came poured outbut didn't pump out when i rolled the engine over. Got underneath the fuel cell...


Replace the fuel pump and fuel filter to correct the problem you are having. Without the proper fuel pressure the engine will not run at all. Hope this will help you. You might check the fuse/relay panel for a blown fuse or relay in it to make sure you are getting power to fuel pump before you go to the trouble of removing the pump and fuel filter. Hope this will help you.

Wont start unless you pour gas into intake


Time for a fuel pump, but make sure chg. fuel filter and do a fuel pressure test. Thats the only sure way of knowing if its the pump is by the test.

I would check to be on the safe side the fuel filter is going in the right direction. The arrow is pointing towards the engine away from the fuel tank, Then you need to make sure the fuel pump wiring connections are good contact and did not come loose when driving.
