Sounds like you may be running out of fuel. I would change the fuel filter to start with.If continues check fuel pump pressure.

Yes it could be the pump, but also it could be a leaking injector or a clogged up diesel filter.

If the injectors are leaking they will be sucking in air and forcing the fuel back to the tank,

you can pour water around each injector to see if any are bubbling. Get the fuel filter changed and have the system bled through before replacing the fuel pump. they are very expensive.

Hope this helps

Dan

Testimonial: "leaking injectors sound logical and will check. anything which saves buying the very expensive fuel pump is great. Thanks"

1987 toyota pickup with 22r keeps blowing head gasket


Your head bolts are stretched, when it got hot it weakened the metal in the bolts which means that the bolts cannot hold the needed tension on the head. Replace the bolts and you will stop blowing head gaskets. Also use Genuine Toyota head gasket, It will be a bit dearer but they are much better than aftermarket options.

Car stalls will not restart for a few minutes ,motor is warmed up stop at red light and motor will not start for about 5 minutes and runs very well starting good for about a month, then stalls again.


Have you tried putting some gas additive like sea foam into the gas tank prior to filling it up? It may be a bad or clogged injector.

When is the last time you did a tune up, spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor cap with rotor etc?

Is the engine surging in rpm? if so, try replacing the mas air flow censer and or O2 censer.

Continous surging and stalling


Per your description, I would suspect a fuel pump issue. When the fuel pump is running the pump impeller heats up. On an older pump the impeller can begin to seize up and momentarily stops and starts. Some times it just stops and has to cool down for a couple of minutes, then is ok for a while.
To test this theory, when the engine stalls and stops, your mechanic can use a rubber mallet and hit the bottom of the gas tank, this will free the pump impeller and the car will start again.
Or, have him install a fuel pressure gauge and go for a drive. If the pressure begins to fluctuate and drop, you know the pump is causing the issue.
Good luck, let me know.
