chev s10 v6 driving along and quit running like i run out of gas, put can of gas in did not start, put little gas in carb and it will start and quit any idea what is going on ,thanks
Sounds like a fuel filter or fuel pump
fuel pump have some one listen to the gas cap for buzzing, or if it had some life you can cycle the key back and forth a couple time then start it
yea its the fuel pump turn the key and get some one to put there ear by the hole were you pump gas and listen if you hear the fuel pump
likely a fuel pump.
if it is carabated,manual fuel pump,if fuel injected ,check ecm fuse if not blown fuel pump in gas tank.
Before you check out the fuel pump, check out the Fuel Pump Relay, this module turns on the fuel pump when the key is turned on before the engine starts. Much less expensive and easier to replace than a fuel pump. Some auto parts stores will allow you to take the part and test it, then return it if it doesn't fix your problem.
the most overlooked maintenence problem is the fuel filter,if high milage this is esy fix. aaacar
If your fuel pump is quiet do this .Get out your tire tool and hit the bottom of your gas tank a few time .It might shock your pump enough to get it spinning for a little while longer.
i had somewhat related problem in a custom made car , Found out it was only bad lines btw the fuel pump and carburator/or injector because some of the lines r of rubber they melt or something after a while and clog the lines Hope This helps !!
