You have checked for fuel...but what about spark?

Also, make sure you have proper ignition timing. You may have spun a timing belt. If you remove the distributor cap have someone crank the motor and see if the rotor spins...if it doesnt, your belt is broken!

Checking the timing would be hard if the motor cant start. All you can do it turn the engine to cylinder 1's top dead center position and see if it lines up with the rotor position to fire that cylinder. If it doesnt, the belt is connected but has jumped time and your engine is not going to start.

If the engine is blowing air out the intake that may also be a sign of this conditon since the pistons are out of sync with the valves. Be careful!
Some motors valves can be bent if the pistons come up at the wrong time!

Truck idles fine. put in gear and apply gas it dies


Not sure this helps but I have run into several Ford pick up trucks that will idle all day but the moment it was put into gear and accelerated it would die. Fix was a new fuel pump. Had enough pressure to idle but not to take the gas. Your question did not include a make or model but first thing would be to check the fuel pressure at idle and see if it drops an acceleration. it is possible to have pressure but not volume.

Why does my 1988 gmc truck turns off when driving


fuel pump, or fuel punp relay mounted on fire wall, check the fuse in relay, also check the ground wire from fuel pump (in tank) to the inlet pipe , under the truck, where you put gas in, fuel pump needs a good ground period. fuel pump could be on its last leg ! reason why I know this is cause I have a 1988 gmc 3/4 ton. to access fuel pump, I cut an access opening in truck bed, 12" square above tank at location of pump. better than dropping tank, besides the truck is how old ? makes a hard job easy. change your fuel filter also. good luck, ken

Acts like it has no gas


The electric fuel pump in this truck is inside the fuel tank, the fuel that the pump sits in provides cooling and lubrication for the fuel pump, when you run out of gas it is like running the engine out of oil, it damages the pump,You will need to remove the fuel tank and replace the fuel pump.

i would make sure you have a half tank of gas then put in some STP gas treatment if the truck run better replace the fuel filter give these websites a try www.alldatadiy.com and www.autozone.com if all fails stop by your local library and get your hands on a Haynes auto repair manual for your truck wish you the best of luck Michigan Man.

Vehicle keeps stalling. Replaced fuel filter and altenator. It'll run good but when you come to a stop it'll stall. Is this the fuel filter??


I have had the same problem. I changed fuel filter, added fuel injector cleaner, still runs rough as hell at a idle. Didnt think it could be the fuel pump, because ran ok at hiway speeds, it only stalled when giving less gas, not more. So in theory I figured couldn't be fuel pump. I was so wrong. At hiway speeds you have inertia, engine is running faster already etc. Its the fuel pump. 90% of the time in GM cars thats what it is when it behaves this way.
to change the fuel pump:

In the tank, the following is a run down of how to replace it..

This is actualy a pretty involved repair. You have to have the car jacked up on all 4 corners, or up on a car lift. Disconnected battery, and it is recomended you have as much gas as posible drained from the tank. Then underneath the car you will find the tank with 2 staps holding it in place. Those staps should be taken off or at least out of the way while the tank is being supported. There are vacume lines, the fuel fill and vent lines, and the wiring harness that all have to be unhooked. Once you are sure that all lines are disconnected, drop the tank and pull to the side. Wash the top of the tank off, there will be dirt and rocks on top of it, and you need to get all of these out of the way. You will see where the wiring harness goes into the fuel sending unit. Around that peice is a slide ring that has to be gently hammered counter clockwise. Once it is free from its retaining clips, the fuel sending unit will have to be wiggled out very carefully. Once out, you will see the fuel pump mounted in line on the fuel sending unit. You will have to work out how its mounted in line, and get it off and unplugged. Reinstall the new fuel pump and reverse the procedure.
Parts needed:
Fuel Strainer
Fuel pump
Lock ring O-ring
Posibly the fuel sending unit if you were having problems with your gas gauge.

Hope this helps!
