This happened the other night also. I was working on a problem I had with the trailer wiring, and I believe the problem came from leaving the ignition on too long.
Anyone have any ideas on what to check next??? I am stumped.
Any advice would help before I drop the tank again.
Thanks in advance
I think it is called a Fuel Tank Vent Valve.........
Try this. Besides doing your homework (always a good idea regardless of fixing a car or a disease) and getting a second opinion, try carrying a digital recorder and take lots of 'notes' while you are at the mechanics place of business. Don't shove it in their faces, but don't hide it either.
Odds are good that they will suspect that you likely work for a bureau of auto repairs (California) or some other agency. Can't hurt, eh?
Modern Detroit engineering is a validation of the old adage that cousins should not be allowed to marry ... their mothers.
Everything you need to get to is under a bunch of other stuff, you need fingers like needlenose plier and elbows like swivel socket adapters.
The fuel pump is list at Napa for 324 $ and change, plus taxes of course.
Fuel pump runs for two seconds and quits - pressure is built but NO GAS ARRIVES AT THE ENGINE!
Have disconnected gas line from filter and from fuel input at engine - compressed air passes freely.
Am about to install an inline impulse pump to see if the vehicle will run on that. Advise lady to sell this so someone that she really hates and has the punishment coming - and buy a Dodge 74 van. Fixable and reliable even in the desert.
Modern cars are trash - and their design lends validation to the adage that cousins should not be allowed to marry - their mothers.... :mad:
After about 3 hour drive the car stop to accellerate. I listern to the fuel pum sound it sound fine but road patrol said the fuel dont run to injector. What can i do before i buy a new pumb whch cost about $1150 equivalent in Swiss Franc (Sfr.1350-)
Befoe then i notice my car jeck for fuellike when the fuel suppply is cutting mostly when i break in a traffic light and some time it run so low that it switch off.
If someone sold you a pump that is supposed to fit both...you got ripped off.

The truck feels like I'm towing a trailer all the time, however the odd time it seems to lighten up. All the bumps on the road are very hard, very rough ride and when I go over bumps it bounces all over. Now when I put it in 4WD and hit the gas, I hear a cluck from the front left wheel. It almost sounds like a CV joint on a FWD car. But louder and harder.
I feel like these problems are all related to the same thing, but I can't find it. I've checked if any of the brakes are draging there all good. It possibly needs an alignment. If anyone can help, please do before I sell this thing!
Thanks in advance!
