Not getting gas!!
1987 Caprice classic, if I pour gas in the carb it will
start, but every once in a while it won't receive gas
on it's own. If I pump the gas pedal I don't see any
gas spraying into the carb.i replaced fuel pump,.
You don't mention the size engine, so does this have a TBI or a carburetor on this? If it is a TBI you will not see gas when you pump the throttle. It is electrically controlled by the ECU. Never the less, change out the fuel filter, a plugged fuel filter will restrict the gas flow.
Sounds like the float in the carburetor is sticking. Probably time for a carburetor rebuild. DON'T buy a rebuilt carburetor and turn in the old one for the core charge!! Have the original carburetor rebuilt by a reputable shop. I learned that lesson the hard way many years ago!! HTH. -Jim
