I have replaced the tank,fuel pump, fuel filter at engine and behind pump. what could be the problem? I am a frustrated 17 year old wanting to know how to fix his truck
It dies sometime and has trouble starting. I have replaced the fuel tank, fuel pump, fuel filters behind pump and on engine. as if no fuel is reaching the carborater but when i check if lines are pushing fuel through to filter at engine their is fuel present. I am a frustrated 17 year old looking for advice/help
i remember that year truck use to have what is called a vapor lock which means the gas is dissipating before it reaches the carb so some where near your gas lines there is a heat source causing. Lines could be to close to exhaust manifold
check your timing chain
and your ignition timing
Have you check the carb? Is fuel being delivered there? You could have carb problems. Begin checking there and work yourself backward.
