On my way to work this morning, my fuel filter light came on. About 1/2 mile before I got there it was spitting & sputtering so bad that it practically died when I pulled in.
I figured no big deal, just get the wife to run by the parts store & pick me up a filter, drop it off and I'd be good to go. WELL,...... on my lunch break I wanted to see if would start before I changed the filter and to my suprise it fired right up, but didn't quite sound up to par. In my attempt to make the 3mile drive home, it died in the middle of the highway. I got it on to the edge of the road and changed the filter & started back up. I only got 1/4 mile or so before it started spitting & sputtering & lost power,..... once again.
I thought maybe there wasn't enough fuel in the bowl, so I filled it up, shot a little starting fluid to it
and once again it fired up. Set my chip on high idle and it seemed to be doing just fine, but as soon as I closed the hood, it started to die AGAIN.
I have a fuel pressure gauge attached to the fuel bowl and noticed that the pressure was reading 0.
Anyone have any idea what my problem might be?
My engine mods are as follows,.........
Stage 1 injectors (done by Jim, not me)
I've put about 5000 miles on the truck since I did these mods and this is the very first issue I've ever had with the truck.
I still have the stock fuel system and I installed a new lift pump less than 6000 miles ago.
The truck has 297k on it.
I'm at a loss.
