Cure for vapor lock

Asked by Nov 19, 2016 at 06:21 PM about the 1988 Chevrolet Caprice LS Brougham

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My car stalls out when it gets hot in warm weather.
When it's cold it runs just fine. I've replaced fuel
pump, fuel line, ignition coil, and new elderbrock
carburetor. I live in Colorado springs.  Once the car
stalls it starts and then goes back off. In an hour I
can crank it right back up and drive again.

Try insulating the fuel lines and make sure they are not near sources of heat like the exhaust system. If the engine is running hot you need to service the cooling system.
