took front gas tank out and now it runs for a little while and stops. the van has new fuel pumps and filter. Is there a relay or a fuse getting hot or is it something totally different.

Asked by Nov 05, 2016 at 09:03 AM about the 1991 Ford E-150 XL Econoline

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

my dad put his van in the shop because when parked at an angle the van
would leak gas out of the front tank. So he had the tank removed. So then
he goes to drive it home which is about 45 mins. and it stops running at a
red light. He so he had it towed the rest of the way home which was 4
miles. well he was able to start it up. so long story short.....he took it back to
the shop 4-5 more times and every time the van's running would get
shorter and shorter. but it would start after it cooled off it seems.....is there
a relay or something getting hot and shutting down???????

This really sounds like an ignition module and or a distributor pickup coil heat failure. If they have never been replaced then do so as these are both high fail items. If you have some basic knowledge about car repairs you can do,this yourself, there maybe a video on how to do it on you tube also. Just search your year, make and model and then what you want to do.
