SOURCE: 1996 nissan quest runs good for the first 15-20 min

it does sound like a fuel pump, i am not 100 percent on that ,
as annoying as it is, u might have to start eliminating possible causes. also try checking your fuel pump relay fuse etc. another possibility check your fuel lines could be a blockage. fingers crossed

Running with fuel tank very low,you will pick up the dirtest or water in the tank.
check your fuel filter, it maybe plugged.It is the least expencive and labour.

I used to own a older datsun pickup that had similar problem. The solution I found that fixed the problem was the points and condenser had grounded out when the engine reached high enough temp. replaced them and set gap a little tight to compensate for the expansion.

Driving along just fine, then surged and died. Restarts fine, idles rough, give it gas and it just chugs and sputters. No power to move itself. had to use 4 low to get it off the road.

I would suggest you try replacing the fuel filter usally located under the driver side of the truck inside the frame. If that is ok then you may consider the fuel pump in the gas tank.

Has the Fuel filter been changed? Clean the MAF the IAC and seafoam the intake. These things would be cheap to do first. Does it feel like a misfire? If so Id look into testing the coils Might need new plugs.

try replacing the gas cap first and see if it helps any, on some vehicles, the fuel pump builds pressure inside the tank so it has the correct amount of pressure to send the gas to the engine. if the cap is missing, it can't build pressure.

1.5L mitsubishi engine still missing/sputtering..etc

Ok there are several options such as water in the fuel or dirty fuel for starters. Another option would be clogged fuel injectors or a dirty map sensor. Check the spark plug wires to be sure that they are on tight and none are worn at contact points such as rubbing against a sharp edge. Let us know what the code(s) say.
