I have been battling a loss of fuel problem..."I Think!" and have been throwing parts at it for some time and had no luck yet. The truck runs great for a while and then acts like it's running out of gas. If I keep pumping the gas peddle it sometimes stumbles a while and then smooths out and runs fine again. One time while it was stumbling I pulled the air filter and one of the TBI injectors were hissing air, no cone shaped fuel spray. Replaced both injectors and the problem still exists. I have replaced the fuel filter and the cap and rotor. Someone suggested that I try to recycle the ignition several times and then try starting it when it stalls and strangely enough that worked, after cranking away forever with no luck I tried the recycling trick and after three recycles it fired right up and has ran fine since. However, I know it will raise it's ugly head again. I think I only have the fuel regulator and fuel pump left to replace but hate the thought of pulling the tank to find yet again it stuttering. I am still not sure it's not an electronic problem but I'm at the end of my wits and hope I can get some help from this forum. Thanks in advance! Paul K.
