lost all power

this morning started truck up let it run for about 10 mins while i finished getting my stuff together and when i went to leave it had no power, didnt want to move. no high rpms with foot to floor and took about 3 miles to get up to 45mph. got to where i was going shut it off and about 35 mins later went to start it up again and it conked out. 3 times. finally ran enough to get out of the way.

came back a few hours later and truck ran fine.

now about 10 mins ago im doin 70mph let my foot off the gas and the truck pops, and spudders hard and has no power and starts to slow down and didnt want to move.

WTF IS THE ISSUE NOW?!? or where do i start atleast... :c onfused::b anghead::b anghead:

no truck has no gauges. bone stock. im thinking either air starvation or fuel starvation. it has an old k&n filter. not the greatest.

last night i took the top of the fuel bowl off and clicked the key and the bowl drained. but never refilled.

its a 96 and yes i relized that portion after the fact. and no the truck doesnt smoke a bit just runs like ****.

on the side of the fuel bowl it has a shrader valve. i put a tire gauge on it and got zero fuel preasure with the truck running

is there a way to put a electrical fuel pump on this truck and eleminate all these problems and not have to spend an outragouse amount on everything else

Yes there's lots of write ups on E-fuel. Can be done on the cheap for around $250 I believe.

Your fuel bowl won't fill up when trucks not running because your stock fuel pump runs off the cam shaft and is located "under" your turbo.

Should only be a pick up tube and a return tube and a sending unit in your tank.... Now that said you've told us your tanks have been swapped out with god knows what and are small, you would have to look and see what's on the sending unit.

Any chance your ebpv is sticking on your turbo (truck sounds like a jet engine) and at higher Rpm's it opens up?
