I have a 89 trecel, it runs when u put gas down the carb, then it dies. Is that a float problem?
Sounds more like your fuel pump went. Have someone turn the key to Accessory while you have your ear to the fill hole after removing the gas cap. Do you hear a humming noise? If not, you need a new fuel pump. If it has a carb, you should be able to turn the key to the ON position and grab the throttle cable under the hood, shine a light down the carb and see if you can see gas squirt into the carb. If no gas is coming in, that should tell you that your fuel pump is shot.
