Fuel starvation going uphill

Post #1 by dulcimerbob » Fri Mar 09, 2018 4:35 pm

My 62 sedan delivery starts surging real bad up steep grades and eventually die. On level road runs fine . Any ideas ?

:hmmm: sounds like you don't have enough fuel volume, is the fuel pump older? Try doing a fuel volume test to see how well the fuel pump is doing. Good luck :thumbup: :nod:

Hi, X2 surging under load means you are not getting enough fuel. Could be the fuel pump, filter, float setting, etc. Good luck

If the fuel pump is old, replace it with a new Carter unit.
Check the fuel cap for proper venting.
Sock on fuel sender in tank could be clogged.
