Q: Car keeps dying

asked by on

My car keeps dying, even after I changed the fuel pump.

There are few things that could cause the engine to stall. If it is fuel-related, here are some items to check: There is a small filter on the front of the carburetor that should have been changed with the pump. Check the fuel line to the tank for leaks; be very thorough, as any small leak will cause the pump to draw in air, instead of fuel. It’s possible that the cam lobe that drives the pump is worn too much. I recommend having a certified technician, such as one from YourMechanic, come out to the location of your G10 to run a diagnostic inspection of your car’s stalling issue, then suggest the best path to repair.
