Replace the fuel filter, it's mounted above the rear axle bar, then check the fuel pressure. The pressure should be 18 lbs. and not waiver at all. You will need to purchase a kit to check the pressure on those cars because there is no port and you can not cut the fuel lines to install one -or- take it to a garage and have them monitor the fuel pressure. Fuel pressure loss is usually the pump quitting and slowing or stopping, fuel pressure that is unstable or incorrect is the fuel pressure regulator located on top of the TBI unit and easily replaced.

It sounds like you have water in your tank and/or bad gas. There are a few Chemicals that can help to remove it.... Dry Heet is one of them, but there are others. I would try to drain as much as you can first, as it seems to be floating on top of the gas. Then add the fuel cleaner. This should help. I would also replace the fuel filter if you cannot clean it out.

Switch gas Stations....
Thank you for contacting Fixya. Does this help? Let us know.

Someone will need to check it over when it fails to start. You need to know if it is not getting fuel to the injectors or spark to the plugs.

hi it can really only be two things, first is the fuel sender on the pump inside the tank it could be stuffed or sticking causing a false reading, second it can also be a faulty fuel gauge on the dash.

Check routing of fuel lines (too close to heat source like muffler, catalytic converter - check for missiong heat shield around exhaust). Sounds as you are having a fuel vapor-lock.
Could be ignition position sensor coil (not ignition coil) but not so likely.
