If the vehicle in question is not fuel injected there is a possibility that a float can be stuck or a valve not seating in the carb and that can cause the fuel level in the carb to be too high. An improperly adjusted float can also cause this. But without anymore information, your guess is as good as mine. Good luck.

Fuel filter

It should be near the carburator. A line that feeds your Carburator comes from the fuel filter area. it has to go through your filter first than to your carburator unless its missing a filter. Just follow the gas line

The gas is not going into the intake but has good gas presuer

-Check the fuel filter inside the carburator and the cut off fuel plunger inside the carburator. It might be stuck in or lose from it floating arm.
That's why it doesn't let fuel flow to the caburator recevoir.

Is it carburator? I had the same problem with mine 85 ford ranger. I had the carburator rebuilt but it still took the shop 3 tries before they got the adjustment right. It's either your fuel pump (most likely). Inside the carburator, there's a float that adjust to much gas is needed and that could also be the problem. The float might be defective so it stalls when you step on the gas. I suggest replacing the fuel filter as well if you gonna work on it
Other unlikely culprit could be your ignition wires/coil/spark plugs. Check to see when they were last replaced.....
good luck

What is it when I am going up hill and step on the gas the truck starts cutting out?

Inside your carburator is a mini gas tank (float bowl) that keeps a specific amount of gas in reserve to accommodate changes. It isn't getting enough gas. The most likely culprit would be the fuel filter, so get it changed first. If that doesn't make the problem go away then the fuel pump is likely getting weak and not pushing enough gas into the carb. You can get it tested before you change it to make sure. If it tests good or you change it and still have the problem you will have to get the carburator taken off and rebuilt. Over time there will be a certain amount of crud acumulate in the float bowl that is interfering with gas delivery or it's also possible the float has become "waterlogged" and is not keeping gas at the proper level. Rebuilding carburators is not a job for rookies. It may cost more up front to have it done by a shop, but it will save you a lot of grief in the end.Hope this helps.

MY 2003 Toyota Echo ran out of gas and I put one gallon in and it won't start.

If it has a carburator. Take the air cleaner off and pour a very small amount of gas into the top of the carburator. Like about a teaspoon's worth. If its fuel injected I have no answer for you.

Change gas filter

is this a Carburator motor or a fuel injection system...if carburator them the fuel filter will be at the end of the gas line going in to the carburator..if it is a fuel injection systam then it should be on drivers side some where in front of the rear wheel along side the frame will look like a bell

Gas peculating in carburator and running into motor.

there is exhaust that runs from head to head under carburetor . there should be a damper that opens when cold and closes when hot . when it stays open after motor reaches operating temperature gas in bowl boils and gas is a vapor instead of a mist and causes motor to run lean .

To my knowledge, the gas tank vent does not hook up to the carburator, it is just a means of escape for trapped air inside the gas tank, so normally it is just left hanging.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
