Have 93 s10 w/4.3 ltr auto 2wd starved for fuel between 50 & mph 60mph.


Has the fuel filter been replaced? If not replace it,also have the exhaust system checked for excessive back pressure due to a failing catalytic converter.

1986 Ford Bronco, 302 EFI. Surges in idle. Speeds up then slows down.


Probably a loose or missing vacuum hose. Check the vacuum diagram under the hood and look for loose or cracked hoses.

87 chevy 350 tbi will only start if if pour gas in the throddle body then keep it running by pumping the peddle. It seems to starve at higher rpms, and when it does idle the rpm's swing from hig


Sounds like the fuel pump is going bad(or in this case,has gone bad). I suggest that you change the fuel pump and use a fuel cleaner in your gas tank as dirty gas may have caused the problem to begin with.

Does it idle properly? If it idle properly and surges when you mash on the gas,you have a fuel pressure problem,you will need to measure the fuel pressure it has to be at 35psi to 45 psi

Just changed map sensor fuel filter idle control valve and when you press the gas it hesitates like its bn starved think its a bad injector all the vac lines are connected checked relays still having probs...


check the fuel pressure and volume with a gage and check to specs.it could be a bad tps sensor.if it was a bad injector it would run rough and not feel like its starving for gas.it could be that all the injectors are dirty and need to be cleaned or if too dirty replaced.

Engine surges when cold - Once it warms up it runs fine


If carburated, I would suspect a sticking choke, making the fuel mix way too rich.
