MY HAS SUDDEN LOSS OF GAS TO ENGINE IN ANY GEAR AND STARTS********.

1987 Volkswagen Van • 155 miles

It feels as though the gas line is clogged or the pump is bad. I just replaced the pump. When it happens, I have to put it into neutral and rev the engine many times.

Check to make sure the micro switch on the throttle body is adjusted property and that you can hear a click right off of throttle and at full throttle, with the engine off of course.

Could be poor fuel or poor spark or EGR malfunction.
