[STEP 1] Check air pressure with proper gage
[A] Adjust air pressure to correct specs as shown in the manual
[B] If that doesn't show anything follow STEP 2
[STEP 2] Take the rear plate off by the air adjustment that has 4-5/16" bolts. Start the heater and see if you have air coming out the vent hole on the left side under the top bolt.
[A] If you do the air pressure gage needs to be cleaned. keep plate off and blow air through with an air line.
[B] If that doesn't blow air through the vent hole follow STEP 3
[STEP 3] Take the next plate off that has a bunch of 5/16" bolts.
Carefully pull that off and inspect that plate.
[A] If that plate has gouge marks look at the manual for sanding proceedures and follow those carefully.
[B] If it still doesn't work call mfg.

Check the fuel line that goes into the tank.If it look the least bit cracked, replace it. It will suck air instead of fuel

When tank is below 1/2 full the car is hard to start and when driving it seems to lose power. My check engine light does not come on.

the problem maybe a problem with fuel pickup at 1/2 tank, if the line has blockage, the filter is clocked up, the leveling or device that keeps track of fuel level is defective, there issue with the floater, the part that suppose to float has or full of fuel and when it gets to 1/2 tank, the floater full of fuel and sinks like your out of gas.
i think most likely clogged fuel filter in the fuel tank if your car has this type of system.
if not the fuel filter most of the time its near intake of the injectors, underneath the drivers seat under the car.
or by the inlet and outlet of the fuel tank.

2007 armada running out of fuel,when gage says otherwise

The 2007 nisain armada has a bad habit of acting like it runs out of fuel when the fuel tank is just below half a tank,maybe a quarter of a tank.,if this happens with yours,it is the fuel pump,hose connecting it to the assembely,that has deteriated,just keep the tank full,to half full,and you will be fine,and wait for september to get it fixed at the dealer,they are replacing the whole unit,and are out of them at the moment,this is a recall.

1998 klr 650 acts like it is out of fuel

When you have to go full throttle does it accelerate like a normal one when given full throttle, or does it just barely keep running? Is there a carburetor or is it fuel injection? Try some fuel system cleaner. But you say it's intermittent, correct? If so then it's a real mystery.

My heater runs great for about 15-20 minutes and then raw diesel comes out and it shuts down. I thought maybe the tank vent might not be working right so I tried running it with the tank cap off and it...

The transformer gets hot and stops making spark... then fire goes out....transformer cools down and it works till transformer gets hot...

Here are a couple of tips that I wrote that tell you how to troubleshoot a Torpedo or Reddy heater...

Truck acts like it is running out of gas? Replaced fuel filter. Ran fine for awhile but now still acts like it is starving for fuel.

my '93 f-250 (4.9L) stopped running while driving, now it acts like it isn't getting any fuel. Tried switching tanks, but still does the same. What would be the problem.

Turns over and starts momentarily and then dies. It acts like its running out of fuel but has a full tank.

that my friend is most likely your fuel pump... like you stated it sounds and acts like it is running out of fuel... well even with a full fuel tank the engine is technically running out of fuel

I have a 1995 dodge dakota v6 sport truck that starts skipping when it gets to a half or a quarter tank of gas?

Hi There. Let's see if we can help. If truck runs normally after filling the tank, next time it acts up and you add fuel, record how much fuel you added. You then need to determine how many gallons your tank holds. A quick phone call to your local Dodge dealers parts dept with the VIN number will usually get you that info. Next, refering back to your notes, if you have a 20 gallon tank, it acted up at 1/4 full, then you should have added approx 15 gallons! This simple test verifies that the fuel gauge is reporting fuel level correctly. If it is, then there is most probably an issue with the fuel pick-up tube or fuel pump strainer in the tank not extending to the bottom of the tank. Inspect the exterior bottom of the tank. Are there indications of damage to outside bottom of tank? Is it pushed up or deformed? Fuel tanks, especially on pickups, are prone to damage from running over something. If no visible damage is apparent, have you had the fuel pump replaced or did the problem arise after the fuel pump assembly was replaced?. Summary: If fuel gauge reads right and no visible damage to tank is apparent, then the tank needs to come down for removal and inspection of the fuel pump module. Good Luck!
