Check fuel pressure and then if it is ok check for spark.

I just went through this same issue and it turned out to be the engine cooling sensor, a $50 part.

SOURCE: acting like it is running out of gas

have you tried to use an additive to your gas that cleans the injectors and carburetor? "Berrymans" fuel cleaner is the best out there.

Either fuel sensor is bad or coated with sulfur residue from inferior gas. Try a can of Sea Foam gas treatment OR can of Techuron concentrate. Both available at auto parts and , of course, Walmart ! Add to full gas tank, drive 75 - 100 miles and see if all is well. If not, condide4 sensor change

SOURCE: 95 sedan deville wont start and says fuel low with gas in tank

I'd start by tracing the fuel supply and return lines from the gas tank to the engine compartment. Make sure that they are free of kinks or other damage.

Next, check the fuse box and make sure there is power to the fuel pump. Trace the electrical connections leaving the fuel tank and make sure they weren't torn or otherwise damaged by the tire tread.

Hope this helps and good luck!

95 caprice classic wwon't start acts like its out of gas but isn


well if the motor is turning over you need to check if its getting fuel or spark or which one it is not receiving or not receiving enough of. turn the key on to the start position but do not attempt to start it, then lay down at the rear of vehicle underneath and see if there's a whining sound coming from the gas tank if it is fine high pitched noise its ok its either bone dry or full of fuel so im trusting you when you said it has gas. if thats ok then there is only a couple of things that can cause that but i believe what your issue is the optispark distributor has FAILED and you will need a replacement I have had this exact issue 4 times with my z28 camaro and that is what i had to change everytime

Acts like it's out of gas when it isn't


Sounds like you need to turn up the idle. There is a screw on the throttle and you have to turn it one way or the other. I bought an 82 convertible lebaron and the idle was all the way backed off. It took 4 full turns to get it right. Also I know my auto choke is broken so I have to rev it up when I start it or it wont start. Hope this helps

95 legacy awd with a slipping clutch


yes the problem is that the pressure plates is getting weak and doesnt keep enuf pressure on the clutch. ive replaced clutch sets on many diff vehicles and when they act like u decribe its usually the pressure plate. replace entire clutch kit and if u decent mechanically u should be able to do it. in a clutch kit they give u a diagram and directions. keep a very good note on what parts u took off where to ensure u put them back in the right place

The engine turns but does not start. There is fuel in the fuel filter, but i dont know if that matters. also, fuel gauge doesnt work so i ran it on low fuel quite often


Make sure you have spark first. The fuel in the filter helps, but might be clogged enough to not get enough pressure to start. Running low on fuel tends to allow the junk in the tank to get into the filter. Hope this helps and have a great day.

Sorry no the sending unit in your tank is bad replace it. If you are sure of amount of as you have and you know your average MPG you could wait till your tank is low so as not to waste much gas Give yourself a 3MPG reduction for error accountability.
