Thanks for asking your question. I will try and help you out.

What engine do you have?

Expert:  Cat Man replied 1 year ago.

You may want to check the fuel tank vent. If it is clogged it can cause a vacuum in the fuel tank. When this happens it will starve the engine for fuel.

Please reply back if you need more help or have more questions. I am happy to assist.
