Have you checked to see if gas is going to the carburetor when trying to start. If no gas is going into the carb then the problem could be clogged gas filter or it needs a new fuel pump. The fuel pump is located in the fuel tank.

Engine stalled out,would not start, pour gas in carb,cranks,keeps running,until idle falls below 12to1500rpm,than stalls out again and will not crank,repeat gas or starting fluid in carb,cranks runs and...


This truck is fuel injected, the problem sounds like a weak fuelpump, it runs when you pour gas into it until that gas runs out, the first thing is to test the fuel preasure, if the pump is weak it may run with gas poured into it but wont idle, also a common problem is the coolant temp sensor and the ground wires to thermostat housing bolt but i wont bet its the pump inside the fuel tank, if you put a fuel gauge on it there should be at least 55-61 psi if its a few pounds lower it can cause problems, you have everything else and it runs with gas poured so its a fuel problem check the preasure, theres a valve up top on the fuel line to connect a fuel gauge to it, start there hope this is helpful.

take your distributor cap off and check the ignition module for loose wires or even a ground strap thats connected to the engine to the body , you can take the module to autozone and have it checked for free, it might have a crank position sensor thats going wacky
