1979 Leocraft Motorhome. With a 454. When the engine gets hot it stops receiving fuel. Any ideas? Changed fuel pump and collapsed fuel line section.

Sounds like vapor lock. Vapor lock happens when the fuel in the lines gets way to hot and boils/vaporizes and causes stalling . Have the fuel lines wrapped in an insulated wrap or relocate them away from heat sources. Sometimes winter grade gasoline will cause this also.

Why does my 86 goldwing 1200I stall while riding then backfires,until it cools it won't start.Sometimes it don't do it.

The fuel line make be vapor locking if it is routed around something that is getting warm or hot. That would be the easiest thing to check first.

Vapor lock 454 chevy p30 motorhome

Its possible if you have a carb instead of fuel injection.
The engine would stall and have to sit for a while to cool off before restarting. The carb would in effect run out of gas.

Truck just dies when the weather gets hot

Try the ignition pick up inside the distributor, (not the coil) $35-$40 part. That should fix it over 75% of the time.
If its not that, its the vapor lock in the carburetor.

Vapor lock? On a 4.3. 2000. Chevy. Blazer

Not really possible.
Vapor lock was when liquid fuel would vaporize in the steel line or carburetor from excessive heat.
Since your Blazer is fuel injected, the fuel can not vaporize in the line.

1995 olds cutlass ciera 3.1 V-6 stalls when warm

Some times the fuel line may be too close to the exhaust manifold or engine and can create a condition called vapor lock. This is where the fuel is heated to a vapor in the fuel line. This is easily corrected by just moving the fuel line away from the source of the heat.
