I have a 93 K3500 with a 454. Truck was running fine, started no problem, ran great. Driving the other day, turn the corner and the engine quit. Cranked the engine, fired up for 2-3 seconds then quit, ...


Before starting the engine, the fuel pump should only run for a few seconds when the key is first turned, to pressurize the fuel system. Even though the pump appears to be running, you may either have not enough or too much pressure for the engine to keep running (fuel pump or pressure regulator). I think it may just be a coincidence the engine quit while turning a corner, but the gas in your tank may have been so low it sloshed away from what is likely a very old pump, starving it and causing it to failure.

2000 Ford Taurus. Would fill up with gas when close to empty or light come on. Then a couple weeks ago,gas gauge was on 1/4 tank then went a little lower and engine started bucking. Then light came on. ...


change the fuel filter for one, this is telling you that your pick up in the tank is getting clogged, I would drop my tank, and drain it, flush it, and check the pump at that time

1992 dodge dynasty 3.3 engine runs then after so many miles, it hesitate/sputters and stops


Depending on how old fuel pump is, and quite often you will notice the buzzing/humming of pump at rear of car getting noisier. If vehicle re-starts after sitting 20-30 minutes and drives for a while again before same happens, I would certainly consider having fuel pressure tested. Hard part is to get it tested when vehicle fails to start, because by the time it gets to a shop, the pump has cooled down and works for a short time again. Not uncommon for the pump to have good pressure when cool, and heat up and lose pressure when driven or been running for a while.

Engine quit when stopped at stop light. Acted as if it was choking then died. Tried restarting. Turns over strong, no start. Thought maybe no gas. Added gas after about 30 minutes. Started first try....


Sounds like the fuel pump is going out. Replace the filter first, as it's only $10. If that doesn't fix it, then it's probably the pump, which is $250.
