Hi, A common problem with these trucks is the sending unit mounted on the fuel pump in the tank. The sending unit is a variable resister which tells the gauge how much fuel is in the tank. this resister is not made very well, my sending unit failed after 5 years. I waited till my fuel pump failed(2 years later) replaced the pump now my gauge works great.

Did you ever change the fuel pump? most of the time when fuel pump is weak does that on hills, and then is hard to restart

My truck turns on, idles fine but when i give it gas it only goes about 3 mph. when i want to excellerate it goes nowhere


Not quite everything is fine.
Is the check engine light on ?
When you push on the gas pedal, does the engine speed change ?
Can you rev up the engine in park ?
What have you checked so far ?

Cannot accelerate 1987 E350 motor home


If it idles but bogs when the accelerator is pushed, it has carb issues(if it has been sitting for a long time probably has carb issue) or low fuel pressure. If its low fuel pressure then it could be a bad/clogged fuel filter, fuel flow problems from the tank to the fuel pump, or a bad fuel pump.

2002 kia rio cinco. With full tank it runs good. At 3/4 full it starts idling fast,around 3000rpm and cutting out. when fuel is low you can hear fuel pump run for about 10 secods after tuning on the key....


Yes anything can happen with a fuel pump that old an trash builds up over time an fuel filter could bad as well. Get a code reader an see if it gives you something. Could be a lot of things.

When at a stop light the car idles fine when i go to take off it sputters and back fires. I changed the spark plugs, but it is still doing it. It idles fine otherwise.


Does not sound like ignition, but fuel.
Idle needs little fuel.
Could be a clogged filter, water in the gas, bad pump, vacuum building up in the tank, bad sensors, etc.
Start with a gauge on the fuel pressure.
If it is low, that will point to filter or pump. Filter is cheaper to try.
If not low, then check the sensors with ohmmeter from Harbor Freight for $3.
There are O2, water temp, MAS, air temp, etc.

Engine warms up and idles at 2000RPM


If you checked as suggested for vaccum leaks and have no improvement or only little... Assuming here its KE-Jetronics fuel injection.... on the excellerator linkage is a microswitch that gets activated when the excellerator hits idle position (decel fuel shutoff)... it has an influence on your idle quality, also the electronic component in your air/fuel mixture body (Airflow potentiometer) could be the 'guilty' party aswell as your Idle valve (on single belt engines) that is stuck between the inlet pipe of number 3 and number 4.12001b5.jpg Anyway i hope this helps to locate the problem
