Fuel Problem on 2001 Tahoe

I have a 2001 Tahoe. Whenever my gas gauge gets to 1/4 tank it acts like it wants to run out of gas. It starts hesitating and my check engine light starts to blink.. which is what it would do the few times i was actually about to run out of gas. A friend said she had the same problem and it was water in the tank. Does anyone have any other ideas on what it might be? Thanks...

Something with fuel pressure that's for sure! do you hear in the car a grrrrrgule sound sounds like back seat area? usual fuel pumps quit or make a racket for a while and quit or do what yours is doing any how be sure to hook up OBD 2 scanner to avoid gue$$ing your trouble scanner will show your fault code

1996 Tahoe 4x4 5.7 Vortec dies when I turn the steering wheel periodically, when I start up and pull into the street, then will start up again and then dies, or if I get gas, and pull out and turn wheel it...


The 1990's chevy trucks(all of them) had fuel pump and grounding problems:

1. Check the fuel pump ground strap next to the gas tank as it could be broken from the connector or just loose.

2. Have a fuel pressure test done on the fuel lines at the engine top. (Note: if there isn't enough fuel pressure, replace the fuel pump.)

I have fuel in gas tank-after shutting off will not start unless I put gas into fuel tank. Is it a fuel filter issue. or?


Just a question. Do you run your car on empty. If so that could be your problem with an empty tank you are sucking all the dirt through the filter and making it plug up. It is better to keep your tank above half full and does not cost any more than to run on empty. All mechanics will tell you to always keep your tank above half full.

99 chevy tahoe, 5.7 starts and idle fine, slowly give it gas it accelerates, step on the gas and it faulters, stalls sounds like it will die and bogs down


I have seen this type of problem before, this sounds like the engine is not getting the correct amount of fuel pressure it needs as you accel.the first thing is to remove the fuel filter and replace it, take the old filter and blow into it, this will tell you if its restricked. the next step will be to check fuel pressure, you will need a gauge for this test, hook up gauge at valve on the injector rail, take caution wear safty glasses as fuel is under pressure and will spary out a little as you connect line for the gauge to fuel injector rail valve, you will run the engine and also step on gas pedal as you watch the pressure, i would rev the engine to around 3000rpms and hold it to see if engine tries to stall or buck when it begins to act up look at the gauge and if the pressure drops as it starts to act up then the fuelpump is bad. its not able to keep up the pressure. start there good day.

My car will start to hesitate when the gas gets below 1/4 of a tank.


If the gauge is incorrect,then it is running out of fuel,or there is a contaminate in the fuel,use a additive called Heet,two bottles of it,and a additive called Lucas,the.And add fuel.

Golf 2000, hesitates, goes into limp mode, feels like no fuel?


It may also be water in the gas. Gas after a while will go bad. and the tank also condensates. You may want to try some HEET or some gas additive that reduces the water in the gas. And it maybe the pump pickup is bent wrong or something and is actually starting to come out of the gas. Remember the gas gauge is only an indicator. I doesn't accurately tell you how much gas you actually have. I have ran out of gas a couple of times because it trusted the guage, only to find out that my sensor in the tank was on consistant from one tank to another.


I hope this helps
