Why engine hesitates or stalls lightly when running?


Could be a fuel pump going bad or partially clogged fuel filter. It could also be a dirty air filter or some of the few electrical components you can replace in the distributor. You might also have a bad spark plug wire that needs to be replaced. The most expensive fix is the fuel pump/filter as it is located in the gas tank and it has to be dropped to fix it. I would try the cheapest options first. You may also have a bad spark plug and I would try putting in a bottle of fuel injector cleaner as well. Sometimes they get a little gummed up.

Well, the fuel pump may be going bad. There's a fabric screen on the pick up tube in the gas tank that may be plugged. Look in the gas tank for sludge build uo.

98 dodge ram 1500 Truck ran out of gas. It will start w/ starter fluid sprayed in filter but will not stay running.


Since the fuel pump is in the gas tank, your pump picked up debris, and dirt on the bottom of the tank and ran it into your fuel filter.
Replace fuel filter, and check fuel pump fuse.
Running your vehicle with less than a 1/4 tank of gas is hard on the pump, because the fuel pump uses gas to cool it.
Please let me know what you find.

Cannot get 1987 chevy van 20 to keep running... stalls out


Best do a fuel pressure test. Should have chg. fuel filter from the get go. The only other filter is on the end of the fuel pump in tank. Bad gas and dirty gas will plug up fuel filter, hense burn pump up.
