I have a 95 Nissan pickup and it will run fine when it's

Customer Question

I have a 95 Nissan pickup and it will run fine when it's cool but if it's hot outside will sputter and die I was told it's my fuel pump but not sure
JA: Have you ever replaced the fuel pump, or is this the original?
Customer: Replaced it about 9 months ago. Also the fuel pump wasn't a standard fuel pump from say Autozone. They say the truck came from overseas so we found it at Napa
JA: Are you fixing your Pickup yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I am thinking of trying to remove the bed and replace myself if I can find the pump. I have replaced the battery so far
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: That's all I can think of

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
2.4
Expert:  Tim's Auto Repair replied 2 months ago.

ok.

does the engine start right back up after it stalls?or must you wait?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
It will start and it it's cool I can drive it but as soon as it gets to hot it starts sputtering and will shit off and then it just keeps dying. I then have to get a ride and let the truck cool off overnight and when I start it in the morning it will be fine
Expert:  Tim's Auto Repair replied 2 months ago.

ok

this sounds as if you may have a bad cam sensor in the distributor.

Expert:  Tim's Auto Repair replied 2 months ago.

you may just want to replace that distributor with a new rebuilt unit

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
you think distributor? My mechanic said it's the fuel pump but he said I need to get rid of the truck lol and I had replaced the fuel pump in December after having a kinda similar problem
Customer: replied 2 months ago.
That time I had ran out of gas and then I had the problem after that
Expert:  Tim's Auto Repair replied 2 months ago.

it sounds as if the cam sensor is getting hot and breaking down

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
Is that part of the distributor
Expert:  Tim's Auto Repair replied 2 months ago.

yes
