SOURCE: runs when cold, stalls when hot

Have you tried changing your fuel filter. Not saying that is what it is but when you first start your truck it runs good and the longer it runs the more your fuel pressure drops. It is possible that the longer it runs the more trash the filter is picking up and begins to stall but when you turn the truck off the sediment in the filter settles allowing the truck to restart.

SOURCE: fuel pump relay

Relays aren't usually thermally sensitive. Is the check engine light on? If so, rent a scanner, read out any code(s), and pursue to repairs. How hot does the engine get? Does it quit when it gets hot, or does it not start after shut-off? The fuel pump should run for a short time, then stop when the key is first turned on (engine off). If it continues to run, the pump is near it's demise--replace it. Replace the fuel filter if it hasn't been changed recently. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Car runs great till you apply the brakes then it

If it has that pressure when it dies, or is losing power, then it must not be fuel-related.
Just a thought: Do you have a large air leak from a faulty brake booster? I think you would hear air hissing when brakes are pressed if it's bad.Might check that.

How do you prime the fuel on a case 445 series 3 skid steer?


WELL MOST BOBCATS NOW HAVE ELECTRIC FUEL PUMPS NOW , SO REPRIMEING FILTER IS EASY YOU JUST KEEP CYCLING KEY (NOT TO START) WHEN FILTER IS PRIMED (NOTED IN PITCH CHANGE OF FUEL PUMP SOUND) THEN YOU CAN LOOSEN ONE INJECTOR SUPPLY PIPE (NOT REMOVE) TILL A HINT OF FUEL DRIPS OUT OF IT , CRANK ENGINE TILL IT TRYS TO START , THEN STOP AND TIGHTEN THE INJECTOR PIPE , THEN START NORMALLY ALLOW TO RUN FOR A FEW MINUTES BEFORE RESTORING TO SEVERVACE EVERYTHING
CAUTION : AS WITH ANY DIESEL THEY USE VERY HIGH PRESSURE PUMPS TO INJECT FUEL INTO ENGINE ALLWAYS KEEP EXPOSED SKIN AWAY AND SHIELD FACE/EYES WHEN WORKING ON THIS FUEL CAN AN WILL ENTER YOUR SKIN AND CAUSE YOU FATAL PROBLEMS !!!! SEEK MEDICAL HELP RIGHT AWAY IF FUEL ENTERS YOUR BODY !!!

I have a 86 camaro 2.8L run good till it gets warm then die's won't start again till it cools. getting fuel and spark.


I have a 1985 Camaro and if the switch for the fan is off then it overheats. There is a fan that can be installed. My switch is on the left of my steering wheel. Tune up is always good. Have your alternator checked, if it's old can be a problem maybe. New spark plugs can't go wrong. Good Luck!!!

1985 vette starts and runs great untill you shut it off and try to start it again...i have to wait 15 - 20 minutes before it will start again, whats this all about???


when it won't start do u hear the hum of the in tank electric fuel pump when the key is tured to run, it will only hum for 1 sencond, so turning it back off and to run repeated times helps to hear the pump.

Not adjusted right what is a good spot to start at. As far as the adjustment for the air and the fuel. It runs but the mpg is way lower than it should be. and it also takes some time to get it started


turn screw in till it starts to run rough back out 1 to 1 1/2 turns. hope this helps leave comment. check your choke adjustment for starting problem. should be 1/8 of inch between butterfly and carb.

1985 volvo 740 gle no turbo-main fuel pump humming


if it works leave well alone till it starts getting noisy,its a 1985 ,over 20yrs old so it wont last much longer till it fails the annual vehicle technical inspection,then when you need a part for the suspension or steering its obsolete.

1985 corvette wont start


NEVER use either!! EVER! It burns very dry and can destroy a gas engine! Just give it a bit of gas down the intake.But keep the can away after each try! Far away! Not sure how you are getting 32v?? That can't be volts! Silly question, but is there fuel in the tank?? Have seen this before! It would be great to learn how this all started?? [or should i say stopped] lol Check the fuel line for a pin hole. It sounds like it is sucking air. Really need a bit more info. OK Frankster016
