I had an engine from a 98'Suburban put in & in my ignorance I had the engine switched from efi to carbureted instead of the car switched to efi. It ran fine for about 1 month & then one day while driving, I couldn't get passed 60mph without the car starving itself for fuel. The next week, I couldn't get passed 50. Then 40, 30 & so on until it wouldn't even idle in my driveway. I was told by a mechanic to have a fuel pump installed by the tank instead of the one by the engine so I had that done and the same course of events followed. Couldn't get passed 60, then 50, etc. The fuel pump pings loudly as if there is no fuel getting to it. I've been told I need a fuel pressure regulator installed. Would this fix my fuel problem? I would like to find the solution before I sink anymore money into the car. Any info would be much appreciated.
