Well I got my 68 chevelle on the road again, so I thought. when i driving my car home from the body shop due to some minor dings on it, the car started to sputter on me and eventually turned off on me half way home. checked out the the electric fuel pump (which was mounted in the engine compartment by the previous owner) & was not pumping when i turned the key. got it home finally after driving and dieng 3 more times on the way home, moved the fuel pump to the back by the tank. it seemed okay and started to drive off 4 blocks later same thing sputter and die. Fail! also i noticed my temp light in my chevelle would come on and it wouldnt craink, and the fuel pump connected to the fuse box was making the fuse box incredibly hot. thinking the electric pump was going out, i drove it til t died then connected the fuel pump to my battery til see if it still pumped and it did! so my mechanic thought it was the pump not drawing enough amp from the fuse box to run it, so he connected a switch that runs off my battery to turn on the pump manually, so i wouldnt be drawing power from the fuse box any more. well just picked the car up this morning drove it home fine. BUT when i got here i turned the car off and thought i would turn it on again to see if it would start. I DIDNT! same thing temp light comes on doesnt craink. turned the pump it didnt pump. waited 10 sec pump came on but car wouldnt caink with temp light on. 30 mins later it starts right up no problem its amost like the car is overheating and needs to cool down. any input would be greatly appreciated I have no clue at this point???????
