Hey Tom, gonna try and help ya here...typical vapor lock/overheating is what your describing and i sure hear a lot of it w/harleys...are you using a very high grade synthetic oil , like castrol Syntec Actevo ? are you filling up w/ premium gasoline ?
make sure your timing is not too far advanced and don;'t let it idle too low...when you come to a stoplight stand up for a strech while letting your engine get air not blocked by your legs....all these things will help greatly......Good luck to you friend...Tim

SOURCE: Road King fuel pump will not prime?

You have a couple of electrical checks you can do first. Yes this will be somewhat painful. The other item is if you go through these troubleshooting steps you won't be happy if your fuel pumps DOA.
First replace your fuse, I know it may look good, but replace it anyway. Next check your relays, then under your speedo console there is a connector on the tank. If this connector has been unplugged it is very easy to bend the pins inside, check for that. Check for power to the pins. If you have power and still no working pump, then it is an entirely different task and somewhat costly.
A bad fuel pump is not a real fun replacement sometimes it is however not a bad idea to replace the whole ball of wax which can run you about $400 for parts at retail. If you conclude your pump is bad just post with your year and model. Hope this helps,

Why is my 2005 subaru forester is hard to start?


Your car is fuel injected, so pushing the accelerator pedal won't actually do anything. That's from back in the days when cars had carburetors and that was the only way to get them started. But I'm wondering if your mechanic is talking about the Air/Fuel Ratio sensor, that will cause a drive-ability concern. Also, you can have your mechanic check to see if your car is equipped with and EGR system, if you have a problem with the EGR valve sticking open it will do exactly what your describing. I hope this info helps!

My car seems to be starving for gas


Yes you may replace your fuel filter and check for the adjustment of the carburetor float level. Try also cleaning the whole carb specially the metering orifice and other small passages.

Its hard to start then when its running as long as you keep it wide open it runs if you let off it stalls and is hard to start again if it does


The engine is starving for fuel--check the fuel filter for plugging and the condition of all fuel lines. If still no help, then the carburetor likely needs to be cleaned inside and out with spray carburetor cleaner. Pay attention to the condition of the lower chamber diaphragm--it should be flexible with no holes or cracks. Hope this helps!

05 Malibu Classic won't start. Seems to be starving for gas. Have good charging system. I was on road traveling and car just stopped running.


Replace fuel pump, may be in the gas tank. Some cars have gas shut off in case of accident, this may have tripped, not sure where it is located on your car.

Very hard starting, also stalls intermittently. seems like starving for gas at times


Probably is starving for fuel. Replace your fuel filter. Most cars it is near the rear passenger tire. Follow the gas lines near the rear. Most of the time they are long as your hand and round, and black. Almost guarantee this is your problem.

If it is hard to start after it stalls, it is probably getting too much fuel. Could be dirt in the float valve. Also try running a hotter spark plug
