Check the electrical for key on power to the fuel pump relay, it sounds like the pump will only run in the start position.

1998 sts wont start unless u hit the gas then it runs rough ..u put it in drive it wont run over 2000 rpms then it dies


Is the gas tank above 1/2 tank now?

A worn / aged fuel pump will fail when it's hot and the fuel level is low (example: below 1/4)

Park your car in a cool area.

Start the car when it's cold outside,

Not enough Fuel Comming From injectors


Did you run diagnostics on your truck? a code would be helpful.Now lets see.From my experience if you have to do all of this,your ECM is probably bad.And sometimes the best diagnostian can't figure this out.I would change the computer,get one from the junk yard with matching numbers, will work just as good as a new one,and you will not continue to increase your cost much.

1992 Pace Arrow Motor Home 454 Chevy...not getting fuel to start


After you dump the fuel in the throttle body it will continue to run on its own or die as soon as it burns up all the fuel you dump in? Do you have access to (Noid lights)? Are both plugs attached to the distributor?

I have a 92 brougham and it chokes out


This sounds like a carburated car and you have a sticking automatic choke.

1991 Cadillac Brougham not getting gas


The fuel pump is located on the frame undrneath the passenger side rear door.If you have the throtle body injection used on the 305 engine the electric fuel pump puts out about 8 psi.
Sounds like you have a clogged fuel pump. Not that bad to change if you have the special tool needed to remove the fuel lines to the pump. Ask your local Auto parts store for help.

I have a 1985 fleetwood brougham 4100 V8 engine. When i accelerate I have no power from 0 to 35 or 40 mpr. Then runs normal with plenty of power. What could be the cause of this problem? Also can you...


It could be a lack of gas. That is what it sounds like to me. I would recommend changing the fuel filter. Also look at your mechanical fuel pump. Check the psi and if it is above 30 then its fine. Reason i think it is lack of gas is. Your car has a mechanical fuel pump the faster you go the more gas it is put into the carb. Also you have a set scream on your quadrojet carb tighten it down to make your gas set to rich. This will give you less mpg but also will make more gas be put into the carb. Hope it helped. Also if you just installed a new fuel filter make sure its not in backwards.
