Almost always when it is around or below 1/4 of a tank of gas. if you keep pumping the gas it will barely keep running. other than that it runs great. it is starting to happen more often.

1-The Gauge reading is not correct, Maybe the fuel level is too low to run but it didn't not report empty.
2- The fuel filter has not been changed causing the pump working harder when low fuel volume flowing in the line.
To be safe, replace the Fuel filter to have a piece of mind. After that if it still happen then I would not worry about as long as I fill up at 1/4 level. The filter is mounted on the chasis the driver side.

Almost ran my 99 taurus out of gas . After filling up the car started sputtering and barely made it home where it now wont start. It turns over. Is it my fuel filter now


Unfortunately, you need to locate your fuel rail and use a fuel pressure servce tool to determine if you have a pressure problem. Master fuel o ressure kits have the ability to check fuel pressure before and after fuel filter. When ever you run a tank completely dry it overheats the fuel pump. You should never let your tank get below a 1/4 because the submersed fuel around the pump acts as the pumps cooling system. When a tank is ran lw constantly it kills the kife of the fuel pump.

1999 GMC 4.3 when it gets below 1/2 tank gas it cuts out


Hey there, thats a real pain..What I think is that you have a fuel pump located inside the tank that pumps fuel.
As you pump fuel throughout your Journey the fuel level gets lower, What the fuel also does is keep the fuel pump cool as it runs. I would suggest replacing your fuel pump it could be getting hot and shutting the relay off..Good Luck hope this helps!

Hiccups after running below a quarter tank and then getting fuel.


For a 1989 Honda Civic, to remove the fuel pump after you've removed the tank, disconnect the fuel lines and connector, then remove the fuel pump mounting nuts. If there's a ring, unscrew it to remove the fuel pump. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dodge ram turbo diesel 5.9 1999 runs good for 5 miles then start lose power then runs for 1 mile and keeps doing the same thing.I chaned the fuel filter and fuel pump but she keeps doing it.Fuel pressure...


The only thing I can think of is some how either some gas got into your tank or some other foreign matter. ie: sugar or something else.
I know if you put gas in a diesel it will mess up and slow up the motor.
Making it want to cut out. Not sure about little trucks but the big trucks use this stuff call Hot Shot.
It helps get the water/condensaion out of the tank and lines.
Hope this helps and good luck.

Fuel pump is bad. need to replace it. do i need an eletcric fuel pump or a regular fuel pump..i hve a 2002 chrysler sebring conv. LX 2.7L


All vehicles with fuel injection use a high-pressure pump mounted inside the gas tank. This is virtually all vehicles built since about 1990. I don't know about this particular vehicle, some have an access panel above the tank that allows you to remove the pump without dropping the tank, others don't. Dropping a nearly full tank of gas is no easy task. Try asking your auto parts store or the Chrysler parts counter if this car has such an access panel.

By the way, the pump is immersed in the fuel, and uses the fuel to cool the pump. Never let your tank get below 1/4 full to reduce overheating of the pump, which shortens its life. Occasionally is OK, but running below 1/4 tank on a regular basis will cut the life of the pump significantly.

Cuts out when excelerating like its not getting fuel? also backfires when excelerating-has newer spark plugs all checked and tune up-still has the same issue


Mine does the same thing(same year) and my best guess is....
It only seems to do it when its really low on gas. On the expedition the pump is located near the back of the gas tank(when backed into a driveway the gas gauge reads significantly less gas than what is really in there) so when accelerating the gas sloshes around and the pump doesnt get enough gas to keep it running. Hope this helps.

99 rodeo ran out of gas now no start


If you can hear the pump run and you get no fuel its the pump, If it blew the fuse i would say the pump tied up. That happens when you run around on empty a lot, gas is what keeps pumps cool when you run under 1/8 of a tank pump is not submerged in gas to keep cool hense pump burns up.

Timing belt? fuel filter?


Running the tank low (below 1/4) on fuel ruins the fuel pump, it uses tthe gas around it to cool it down, most likely you will need a new fuel pump.
