When ur manual says dont operate under a quater tank, they mean it. Wen doing so, particulates in the gas get more condensed & clog the filtering sock on the intake of the pump. Low fuel also makes the pump run hotter&burn out because the gas cools the pump. Some cars hve a trap door in trunk or under r. seat so u dont hve 2 drop the tank. I clean this sock , the tank itself, change fuel filter & try again, pumps also become weak but still operate so its good 2 check fuel pressure after this clean out.

Sounds like it may be bad gas. At least it is the first place to look!

Get a good bottle of Gasline Antifreeze. Pour it in the Gas Tank. Bounce the car up and down a little to get it mixed up with the gas. Start it up and let it run for a little while. Adding ONE bottle of this to your gas every time you fill-up will also help clean your engine and, if you are lucky, get you a few more miles to the gallon. If this does not Fix the problem at least it didn't do any harm. I use it religiously.
It is what I have done for years...

Has the 'Check Engine' light come on? I had this problem at 30,000 miles and the trouble codes set were transmission component slipping. Ultimately required replacement of the transmission.

Have you tried replacing the fuel filter? They're pretty cheap and easy to do and if they get clogged they can cause problems. If that doesn't work get a fuel pressure tester you can rent from parts stores like auto zone and you can test your fuel pump

the O2 sensors can be pretty expensive, and it's his guess that those will fix it. It's not common for all 3 to need replacing at one time. I'd pass on this vehicle and find another.

by missing gas you pick up all the dirt in the gas tank if the gas pump dont start there nothing else then dirt in the gas pump if it was running good before so there no other reason then gas pump you try something get somebody to crank the truck at the same time go underneat the truck with a hammer hit the gas tank many time while the engine crank with the shot of hammer the vibration activate the gas pump check it out let me no pierre
