Question type: General

truck has not been used for a while, if I put gas in the carb it will crank and runs good until gas is gone what do I need to do?

1 Answer


So it is not getting any fuel. May have to change the fuel pump, could be dried up, could try and prime it with gas down the line. Make sure and change out the fuel filter also.
