run the fault codes and look for faulty cam/ crank position sensor as this is indicated by the backfire/hard start and lower idle RPM. Check that battery terminals are clean and tight..

1973 dodge 318 truck starts and drives fine until 35-40 mph then dies


Sounds like a fuel supply problem. Does it pop through the carberator as it it is dying, like a lean back fire? If you drove it up a hill would it die before 35 or 40 mph? If the fuel demand excedes the fuel supply the engine will die, but would restart after cranking the engine for awhile. Possibly a plugged fuel filter, fuel line, rotten fuel hose, ( sucking air ) or tired fuel pump. Hope this helps.

2000 gmc 1500 truck ran out of gas filed up won't run. Starts than dies . Tried it for an hour still no luck. Don't think it's the fuel pump but not sher


sounds like the fuel line still has air in it. this should correct itself if you can get the engine to run long enough. fuel pressure builds on the pump side of the fuel rail and when there is an exess ammount of pressure (lack of fuel consumption) the fuel regulator should send the extra gas back to yhe tank to run thru again. try holding down on the accelerator when starting this should send extra fuel to the injectors and may help "prime" the line. you cant flood the engine so dont worry about that just dont over rev the cold engine. this should clear up on its own. the only other thing it could be is an obstruction in the fuel filter or the inlet sock on the in tank pump. if thre was a lot of sediment in the tank it got sucked up withe the last bit of gas in the tank, you may have to change out the filter.

Before you replace the fuel pump, I would check the cheaiper parts first. Such as fuel filter and injectors.
