Car ran great before until today, it just died for no reason. Seems it ran out of gas but still have over a quarter tank.
The car still would crank over, but dies after a few seconds. I checked the fuel pump, and could hear it whizz or humm when I switch the ignition to on. So I decided to replace the fuel filter (100K+ miles anyways). But car still dies after starting.
I called the Recall Hotline since there were issues with the fuel delivery module (FDM) in the pump, but I was informed the VIN did not match any recall or there were no active recall on the vehicle and the FDM problem did not affect my make/model.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks - Dante

They filter is suppose to be inline from the tank towards the engine so it could of been installed anywhere along that line fi it was repaired or replaced by someone else. Also a filter sock is placed at the pumps suction feed inside the tank. That can be plugged up as well
It sounds like you may have gotten a Tank of Contaminated Fuel. Try to Run a Can of B12 Chemtool through the Fuel Tank and see if it will not Clear up. You can get the B12 Chemtool at Wal-Mart in the Automotive Section or at Your Local Autoi Parts Store.
Sounds like the same thing I ran into (again mine is a Mits Mir 2001). I guess I'm late in replying though. Never knew about this site. Anyway, its probably the timing belt. My car died too just like it ran outta fuel. However I made the mistake of cranking the engine. That's a bad idea, you may end up damaging the engine.
your car has a electronic pump. sometimes in cold weather it will lag causing your fuel to be slow getting to your injectors. the humming is probably your electronic fuel pump. it could also be a exhaust leak. nothing big but just check your exhaust and all. now for the reason your fuel guage might be strange is because your float is located inside your tank, cold fuel will cause the float to stick sometimes and will throw off your guage
