Vapor lock is when the gasoline in the fuel lines gets hot enough to boil away before it reaches the engine. This condition is unheard of in vehicles made since the early '60s. Unless, of course, the fuel lines have been rerouted by someone and are now too close to the hot exhaust manifold. HTH. -Jim
