Re: Stalls when fuel is under 1/4 tank
Update: so I've quite possibly found a cure for my trucks symptoms. First, a big thanks to Jugernaut for his assistance. I've been lost up to this point but his expertise has proved very valuable . If you've been keeping up with the thread the original problem was the truck would shutter and die out whenever fuel was below 1/4 tank. It was brought to my attention a diaphragm on the pickup in the tank can sometimes be jarred loose causing air to get into the fuel system. I had to remove the fuel tank to fix that problem , however after it was fixed the stalling problem persisted.
I hooked up a scanner to the truck hoping to find the culprit but everything was fine. FICM was reading 48.5v batteries were good , deltas were only 4* apart....so Jugernaut suggests letting the truck run until it stalls again and then check the fuel bowl/filter to see if fuel is getting to the motor.
I did just that and the thing was empty..... The point of the story is the fuel pump must have crapped out on me when it was sucking air, thus I need a new fuel pump. Ordering one in the morning and hoping to be installed by the afternoon.
On a side note this forum is amazing. Jugernaut didn't know me from dirt and took the time to help out. Thanks again.
