Not getting gas to carb


It could be. Since you have a carburetor, you must have a mechanical fuel pump on the engine? Only some imports with carburetors had an electrical pump.

If your filter is in the line just before the carburetor, take the line off at the filter, then crank the engine over to see if the pump is working. Mechanical fuel pumps will pump gas when the engine is cranking or running. Use a jar or can to catch the gas. If pump is working, fuel will come out in small spurts. It's not under high pressure- carbs don't need high pressure. If no gas comes out of the line, you probably need a new fuel pump. If the pump is working, it could be the filter, but could also be the needle valve and seat at the carb's fuel inlet. Sometimes they get stuck closed and won't let gas into the carburetor.

I just installed a holley blue electric fuel pump and regulator. When I get on the highway I cant go more than a couple miles before I lose fuel pressure and have to pull off the road to refill the bowls...


Several things for you to check. I'd start with the fuel cap. Try to run the truck without a fuel cap on it and see if the problem occurs, perhaps the fuel cap is creating a vacuum and keeping the gas from flowing. Then, try taking a long hose and run it from the electric fuel pump back to the gas tank, and run the pump and see if the pump will pump continuously for 10 - 30 minutes. If this does not work, perhaps the fuel supply is blocked or the fuel line hose is collapsing between the pump and the gas in the tank.
Another thing could be is the fuel filter on the carburetor itself. Many carburetors have a screw-in fuel filter right where the gas line attaches to the carburetor that has a metal or paper filter inside. If this got dirty with all your work, perhaps that is it. Be blessed.

I have a 1984 class c motorhome on a ford e350 frame. I have no fuel at the carb. I pulled the output line on the electric fuel pump in the rear of the vehicle. ran the pump; no gas. I pulled the input...


I know this might sound odd but try replacing the ignition switch. I have a 86 c class e 350 and could not get the front fuel pump to run for the longest time. After changing everything else, I decided to change the ignition switch, and believe it or not the front pump came on and started working the way it is supposed to.

I have a 1985 Pace Arrow motorhome which I think needs a fuel filter replaced. (Stalls, then will restart and run awhile, stall again) Where is the in-line filter located? Looks like there's a little...


Go under the van, the fuel filter will be in the fuel supply line, the fuel supply line is a 3/8" steel line. I will say that this symptom is not really a fuel filter symptom

I have a 2001 saturn that ran out of gas put gas in it wont fire up checked the fuel line presure release no gas in the line checked fuse all good..... do you think its the fuel pump?


THE ELECTRIC FUEL PUMP IN THIS CAR IS IN THE GAS TANK AND IT IS COOLED BY THE FUEL IT RUNS IN, WHEN U RUN OUT OF GAS YOU SEVERLY OVERHEAT THE PUMP AND THEY SEIZE UP, WHICH IS WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO YOUR PUMP, U WILL NEED TO REMOVE THE GAS TANK AND REPLACE THE ELECTRIC FUEL PUMP.

Does my ford motorhome have a gas shutoff switch 1991 ford sprinter v-8 7.5 liter


Most pickup based motorhomes have 2 fuel tanks, you may have a tank selector valve that is electric or vacuum operated. Check underneath and follow the fuel lines from the tank to the front of the engine, somewhere in between you may find that the fuel hose goes to a valve that is used to switch between the 2 tanks ie: main fuel tank and auxillary fuel tank.

Replaced the fuel pump fuel filter , no start in my 95 S10 Blazer. add gas will run, untill the gas stops pouring in by hand . new part on top of the throtle body as well, i think it controls th O2 and...


1. Does the pump actually run (key on engine off) pump should run for 2 seconds and go off and can be heard if you listen at the filler neck with the gas cap removed)
pump not running - Check relay (replace if bad) check wiring/fusese

Pump runs... go on to #2...

2. check the gas guage. is the gauge reading in the normal area it would read in or is it way way off like WAY above full or way below empty? This is a sign the electrical connection at the pump is plugged in backwards and the pump is spinning the wrong way and not picking up the fuel... (This is easy to get plugged in backwards inside the tank when installing the new pump)

3. Check for feed, return and vent lines being installed wrong where they attach to the tank... they can easily be hooked up wrong and fuel is either pumped up in to the return line or pumped in to the fuel tank vent line..

4. check for kinked or crushed fuel lines from tank to engine.

5. check fuel pressure regulator to be sure its not stuck open.

Fuel pump does not work- 1999 ford super duty class a motorhome


Check your vehicles safeties. Your ECM is probably programed for engine shutdown if it senses low oil pressure or low coolant level. Do a preliminary check.
