3800 v6 pump


The pump could very well be shot. Running the vehicle that low allows the pump to get hot. Then when you add fuel, the coldness of the fresh gas can seize the pump. The best place to start would be checking fuel pressure.

Need to fix 1988 Ford Econoline E350 jamboree motorhome starts right up runs good for about 6 miles then it starts acting like it's straining for gas it's a fuel injection 460 engine I redid the...


You say you redid the whole fuel system which means what? From the sound of it the in line fuel filter may be blocked. If you replaced the pump this would be ruled out, if you were not in the tank the strainer on the pump may be blocked. Without knowing what "replacing the complete fuel system entailed" this is where I would start.

The car ran out of gas one day so i put some in it and went to the store and put more in it then it drove fine till it got low then it started acting like it was out of gas sputtering and what not.so i...


first replace the filter this is the least expensive repair..when u ran out of gas u may have sucked up (dirt) in the fuel tank.....if that doesnt work bring it to a service repair station an have a fuel pressure gauge hooked up to it....this willl tell u if the fuel pump is starting to fail...when u run low or out of gas the fuel pump can over heat an cause premature failure....u should never allow ur gas to go below a quarter of a tank since the fuel is what cools the fuel pump

Truck acts like it is running out of gas? Replaced fuel filter. Ran fine for awhile but now still acts like it is starving for fuel.


my '93 f-250 (4.9L) stopped running while driving, now it acts like it isn't getting any fuel. Tried switching tanks, but still does the same. What would be the problem.

Engine starves for fuel after running about 50 miles or so...


Has Neon do same, I ran fuel at low level, on hot day, ran engine until it started to act up & threw a fuel pressure gauge on it. Was at approx 5 psi. Cold next morning, 48-50 psi. Always hot day about 30-40 miles into work in morning, o.k. Sit in hot sun all day & would happen 3-4 times on way home. Sit and let cool, 20 minutes or so & go again for a while. Cool day, no problem. Change pump I would.

1989 S10 Blazer acting like its not getting gas.


I had the same problem with my blazer and it took me to completely rebuild the throttle body and put over $300 into the top end, new filter, and it still didn't stop. I finally dropped the tank and started to go through all the proper steps to remove the new fuel pump and i found that the rubber tube from the pump filter to the intake tube had a crack down the middle of it, replaced that and it ran perfectly fine. if that's not the case make certain that you didn't accidentally switch the small fuel lines like i did.(you'll notice that EVERYTHING smells like gas and you'll have fuel draining out of the charcoal cab emissions filter). hope that helps out a little bit!
