|I have 1984 chevy s10 blazer.The fuel system vapor locks when engine is hot.Any info is apperacated. |

|Test fuel pump pressure and flow. The fuel pump is usually the problem-the less pressure there is the easier it is for the fuel to vaporize in the fuel lines, thus causing vapor lock. good luck|

The first thing to try is premium fuel. Premium gasoline is less likely to vapor lock due to higher vapor pressure. It works well on my aircooled VWs, all with carburetors. Next, make sure filters are recently replaced. If they are OK take a look at where the fuel line itself is running, make sure it isn't near exhaust manifolds etc.

|Last year I was having a big problem with vapor locking. I got a Holley electric fuel pump (Red Label) and it solved it. I don't know if it was luck, but it worked. Hope this helps.|

|I have an 1986 chevy van 350(I think), just got the air conditioning fixed, on the way home, the van died. acted like it wasn't getting gas, and would not start up again, I am waiting for it to cool down now, and hope that it will start. What worked for you? anything in particular? I noticed the engine compartment was hotter than normal, and the outside temp is @ 103.|
Thanks for any help
