The fuel gauge in the fuel tank is simply a float connected to a bar connected to the sensor. Take a look at that and see if that float is stuck in one place causing a false reading.

Terrano running ruff when under quater of a tank diesel


Depending on your year it could be a weak lift pump not being able to lift the fuel to the injection pump, in which case the injection pump will be quickly damaged as it relies on a steady flow of fuel to lubricate and cool it.
on older models there may be a break in the pickup line inside the tank. Suggest you keep tank above quarter full at all times until you decide what to do..replace lift pump or remove tank and check pickup......

Shuts off when idling


You may have cooked the fuel pump. Or the gauge may be off.
I would check fuel pressure with a gauge and make sure you have gas in the tank. Anything less than a quarter of a tank is rough on the pump. It needs liquid gasoline to keep cool and lubed.

its probably the gauge in the tank if they put the pump in and not moved the wiring when fitting it get court on the float so does not move, had this before, but if it been like this for a year i would remove the gauge as its not been moving about to keep the resistance board clean so would need to be cleaned up, oil spray and a cotton bud should clean it up ok with out damaging the board.

dip your tank with a wire. if quarter tank indeed fuelpump or safety valve not opening in supply under hood. Check connection. Valve is on all modern cars for fire hazard. Check the valve by takening it out and testing it. Could be wire harnes problem also. Or filter blocked.

The most likely problem is the sender unit in the tank is stuck.
Sender units are relatively cheap and easy to change.
Autozone probably carry them on the shelf.
