Does the truck run as you spray a throttle body safe " carb" spray in the throttle body? You will need someone to help you do this. You spray it and someone else attempts to start it. If the vehical runs only as you spray ,then you have narrowed the issue to a fuel delivery problem.

Feul pump


Sounds like vapor lock. Leave the cap from the gas lid undone for a little while.

Truck is sluggish and runs out of gas early


Hi Ktyson,

Hope you will not be offended but this sounds like possibly a poor maintenance issue. Filters can seriously damage performance and consumption on most engines. Might be good to have them checked out or if you air capable change them yourself. Good Luck,

Truck just quit at a redlight intersection today and acts like it has no gas. The gas guage also goes from empty too 1/2 tank too empty too full some times for no apperant reason!!


So do you know if you have gas in your tank or not? You need to check for fuel pressure to make sure your pump is working. Inside you fuel tank is a fuel pump module which consists of your fuel pump and fuel level sender. It sounds like you are going to need to replace that. Can you hear your fuel pump buzzing. Open you gas filler cap and put your ear next to it while having a helper turn the key to the run position not start position. You should hear it run for about 5-10 seconds and then shut off. If you don't hear it you have a problem with your pump. It can be with the wiring, feul pump relay, or the pump itself. It is usually the pump. But even if you can hear the pump you still need to check your fuel pressure as the pump may be buzzing but not working correctly. Also check your fuel filter.

After running out of fuel, what is the proper procedure for restarting the fuel injected vehicle?


put fuel in tank. turn key to run position( not start) wait 5 seconds. You should hear the fuel pump running. Repeat. Then start car. If you do not hear the fuel pump hum then it may have siezed due to lack of lubrication from no fuel. Sometimes you can get the fuel pump to kick on if you bang on the gas tank with the palm of your hand_ while turning the key to start position.
