Some times the simplest answer is the best. Don't let your gas get below 1/4 tank. You shouldn't run your tank that low anyhow since you will start sucking up sediment shortening the life of the fuel pump and engine. When a car is very low on gas stopping, starting and cornering quickly makes the gas slosh up the side of the tank and out from under the fuel pickup. So the car sucks air into the fuel lines and the car stalls. By the time it stalls the fuel has moved back under the pick up and thus the car will restart.

I think the fuel pump filter is partially plugged.

Car shuts of suddenly while driving. Starts back up after 20 minutes.


When the gas-cap is plugged, you build up vacuum in the gas- tank and cause the gas flow to stop.
Use premium gas only, ETHANOL in the mix is attracting moisture/water which is part of the problems.

Try pouring a 8oz bottle of regular alcohol into the gas tank, into about a 1/4 tank of fuel and take out on the high way and open it up ( floor the gas pedal and open up the pistons and let the alcohol clean the heads and this probably will solve your problem!

Night be vapor locked..What's that? It when your gas tank pressure becomes greater than your gas pump...You'll be driving then it just shuts off like running out if gas... Quick fix? Open your gas cap and leave it Lise to get air into your gas tank..Clue if this is the problem...Your car will start immediately. Hints...Listen when you loosen gas cap...Can you hear air sucking back into your gas tank. Cheap fix..Take the smallest drill bit and drill a hole into the center of the gas tank..It also could be a replacement gas cap that someone put on the car..Buy the original cap..What caused the problem to start with? Over filling your gas tankk..Putting that extra 75cent to top it off..Your cars gas tank is designed to burn fumes...When you over fill a tank it sends gasoline down those vapor hoses then into a charcoal canister..Over years if doing this...It gets clogged up then the fumes can't get out the tank...It builds up pressure and becomes greater than your gas pump...Then it shuts off...If you wait long enough....it will start back...This sounds crazy....But this could really be your problem...Next time the car shuts off... loosen gas car...If it starts...BINGO....You have solved your problem... Drill a hole in gas cap or buy another canister... Usually behind the headlights... Some under car..Follow the gas line... Hope this helps you or someone else....Stop over filling your gas tanks...You'll keep this from happening....Tell others

WHAT CAUSE A MERCURY VILLAGER TO BOG GOING UP A HILL


when the tank gets low on fuel(under 1/4) or less.. the pump, which uses the gas to keep cool, will get hot and start to cavitate(run at slower speeds and cause a severe fuel pressure surge)..the engine will respond accordingly..most will do this as the system gets older..to avoid it and possible premature pump failure, keep the tank at least 1/4 fll..

My 05 Volvo XC 90 shuts down in mid drive or idle mode


So did they put more gas in the car and did it run fine. It's happened before. And just cause the gauge says whatever. It's not perfect and could be a hose leaking inside the fuel tank and may need to be taken apart to find out what's wrong. Has the fuel pump been worked on and maybe done something incorrectly. Can't tell you what's wrong cause we don't know. How long did the car run before it happened again. If you keep the gas above half does it run fine.

In my opinion it is caused by having too little gas in the tank. You are not suppose to run it it with that little gas anyways because it is bad for your car since all the contaminants can be sucked into the injectors and cause all kinds of problem.

check all of the vaccum lines and the one behind the throttle body also try some STP gas treatment and if this helps replace your fuel filter also make sure you have at less a half tank of gas before you add the STP.

Car won't start


Your fuel pump is sticking and not pumping, this is common if you run the fuel down to less than 1/4 full, the fuel pump needs the gas to cool itself, below a 1/4 tank the pump is not getting cooled and after repeatably running low on fuel it overheats and fails. Running the car near 1/2 tank extends the pump life to many years more than running tank below a 1/4 full..
