I had an engine put in. When I try accelerate the truck hesitate as if it is not getting fuel. Once it catches up it runs fine.
Do you

Scan for codes and check fuel pressure with a gauge auto parts rent it. you have to start there to see what is wrong. also check vacuum leaks.

Hi Betty,

Here is a link to a couple of articles form this site that feature written step by step instructions and pictures explaining how to do the scan yourself, also I have included a link to our YouTube channel with a how to video on code scanning. In addition I have included a link to another article from this site explaining the process of checking the fuel pressure yourself. If you decide you would like do this yourself you can purchase a fuel pressure gauge online from sites like Amazon.com. Most scanners are fairly inexpensive to purchase. . For your convenience I have included two links to Amazon.com one to Amazon s code scanner page and the other goes to Amazon s fuel pressure gauge page.
Once you have the codes please get back to us so that we can further assist you. We are always happy to help.
