Car cuts out when warmed up and when you try to accelrate

Car will surge/cut out and some times when cutting out it will stop getting gas at all and you can press the pedal all the way with no result. I changed the fuel filter no differences. seems to only do it after being ran awhile(100 or so miles). also maybe unrelated but a year and half ago i had a check engine light that said tepeture to cool for closed loop fuel ingection. and auto zone worker said it probly the fuel cap lose and then cleared it and sinces then i got slight less mpg form 32 to 28. thanks for taking the time.
my thoughts were either fuel pump or thermasat gage reading worng and the car sending the worng amount of gas. ???

Fuel pump is not delivery right amount of pressure. When pump is cold it delivery correct pressure after it gets hot it doesn't deliver the correct pressure. Check fuel pressure when cold in between 30 and 40 psi and when u run it for a while (100 miles ) measure if the pressure is below 30 psi your fuel pump is going bad, hope this helps

Car runs when cold till warm then stalls when accelrating. if turn it off it wont start till cold once more


Sounds like either a thermostat problem not allowing cooler flow car overheating , fans not cutting in causing over heating , or the real nasty head gasket do a compression test to eliminate head .

H ave you checked for gas at carb,or injectors checked fuel filter, water in gas tank, old gas,vaccum leak if you haven;t checked for these problems try and see what happens,sound like fuel filter clogged up not letting gas thru.. do you have a inline fuel filter at carb or injectors , some times they get dirt in them, check for these problems first..then move on to another solution.
