    I also have this problem. I have 2 gas tanks and when I push the toggle switch inside the cab, I can hear the fuel pump runing for a few seconds. The truck starts for a few seconds but then shuts down no matter how much I pump the gas. I checked the gas feed cable from the foot pedal to the carb and it works ok. When I put gas directly into the carb it runs for a few seconds but no amount of pumping on the gas pedal gets gas into the carb. I recall that on the Fords there is a button inside the cab that needs to be reset when the ignition system shuts down. Is there a similiar buttong/switch on the Chevy? Thanks. Email me at: merlinoaks@gmail.com if you have any suggestions. Thanks. JC

If you can hear the pump come on in the tank when you turn the key then it might be your ingnition module under the distributor cap

Car died then started to chug. who not speed up like it wasnt getting enough gas. had the car floored and would chug along. service engine soon light was blinking til i got home. now it will not start


So many things that could cause this problem,have the fuel pressure checked,and then maybe a stopped up cat(converter).If it has jumped time it will have this symptom also.

Car runs fine when cold, when warm it stalls


My first guess is a vacuum leak or maybe a defective IAC. Tests need to be run to narrow the search down.

take the truck to autozone and have them run the diagnostic machine on it, but make sure to take it when the light is on. I hope that helps you out.
