pull off fuel line at carb and put end in a container and crank engine and see if fuel is coming out if so then carb needs to be cleaned or rebuilt

check the float in the carb.

Thanks for the answers..... check float and is at good level, fuel is flowing thru the filter and in to the carb, but the funny thing here is hat when the car is hot, gas doesnt flow constant, it starts to starve like when tank is empty (and its not).... i thougth pump was bad and changed but keep doing same thing when reaches full temp!! (temp its ok, its not overheating) any more ideas??? please???
