The fuel pick up in the rear tank is most likely sucking up scale and /or dirt and plugging. If you take the rear tank off and clean it out your problem will go away. Make sure that when you take it off turn the tank upside down and shake it out well. also use a hose and spray around inside to get everything out of the tank. Hope this helps.

Stalling issue?

This sounds like the idle control valve or stepper motor as it's sometimes called needing a good clean out or replacement. When faulty this would cause all the symptoms you are describing.

83 ford f150 6 cylender starts but wont stay running

It sounds like the carb is flooding the intake. Any chance the float is faulty or the carb is leaking internally ?

Runs rough at idle when i drive it runs fine until i come to red light then it wants to stall. if it is idling it will stall to just bought it havent did any maintenance yet

Those El Caminos are nice. If you haven't done any maintenance, I would make sure that the oil is full, check and replace any bad carb. vacuum lines, check for any fuel, intake, vacuum, etc. leaks. Maybe check and replace spark plugs, wires, dist. cap + rotor, also check timing, etc. Good luck.

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.

Sounds like the air conditioning pump is seizing up. You should get it checked out.

1983 Ford F250 will start but won't idle without holding down gas

hi! there, its really help good of replacing old ones,perhaps the condition of current flow to ignite continously your combustion due insuffcient current supply from your ignition system could positively stop your engine,if you maintain this ignition system the engine won't stop such a case this type of model need mostly to be tune up some internal part on the head cylinder should take place of correctnes such as intake and exhaust valve,the rocker arm seat valve and spurk plug.if you done this your worry will be lessen.have a nice day.
