My son has a 95 Chevy s-10 pickup with a 4-cyl since we changed the fue
pump and filter he has a problem it dies as if it is running out of ga
when temp outside temp is above the upper 80s he waits 10-15 min it fire
up and goes. It sounds like vapor locking but is that posibile with fue
injection? I have not been around when it happens. Thanks for any idea

Throw a pressure gauge on it. Monitor the pressure with the pump on and
watch the pressure drop when you shut off the key. If the pressure drops
fast you will need to check a couple things. One is the pressure drop
through the pump itself, the other is for the pressure drop through the
regulator. Could also be that the new pump isn't any good.
Thanks for the ideas the fuel pump was replaced last fall. He was using
ethanol he switched to just regular unleaded and has not had a problem in
over a month. Lanny

It will come back. The Ethanol lowers the boiling point of the fuel. The
lack of pressure going through the system allows the fuel to boil even
faster. Run the tests on it and see what you get. I'll bet you find a
low residual pressure.
Oh and I just had 3 bad pumps in a row, straight out of the box. One was
a GM factory pump (pressure slowly dropped over a 10 minute period, near
as I could tell the motor was starting to fail) The next was a Carter,
that one had a bad return valve and the main line leaked, the last one
was an Airtex - It had a bad regulator on it.
Oh and all three were Made in the US!
