1996 Gulf Stream Sun Voyager

We recently went on a trip from TN to New Mexico.Every 3-400 miles, it would begin to spit and sputter, check engine light would come on, then would die. After about 2-4 hrs, it would start right up and run like new. We changed the fuel filter twice,thinking we may have had trash in the tank. We just bought it a couple of days before our trip and it had been sitting for awhile. Has anyone had this problem? Wondering if the extreme temps were a factor. The temp gauge never got hot and no smells. Possible fuel pump problem? been told maybe vapor lock??? Any ideas???

Hello Carl and welcome to iRV2.com and to the Gulf Stream Owners Forum. We are glad to have you join us here and we look forward to reading of your adventures and experiences. I am sure you will enjoy the website and forums.
Congratulations on your Sun Voyager. I would suspect the problem could be fuel pump and heat. I had a Aerbus that would do the same thing if I did not stay at highway speed. It was a weak fuel pump down in the tank. Are you by chance on a Ford chassis?
