318 running bad

Unread post by BillMcKay » Sat Jun 07, 2014 2:51 pm

I have a 1986 ram van B-150 . After driving a few miles, It starts to spudter like its running out of gas. I have replaced all gas in tank. new fuel filter and new ERG valve. But no luck.

will this only happen while you are driving or can you make it happen when you are stopped?

"86 so you are running a carb, correct?

check your fuel pressure and volume between the fuel pump and the carb. it could be that you are using the gas faster than the pump is refilling the bowl.

Do you have a catalytic converter on your truck? A restricted exhaust could also cause a problem like this.
