Could it be that your tank has accumulated some dirt/ water or even some additives into the system. Sometimes all these gets pumped into the tank from the fuel stations tanks that could accumulate in a period of time. check your fuel filter but since the fault noticed is at a quarter tank, I suspect you need to remove and check, clean the tank. I will only be good to do so , hence you must proceed. If this wont solve , check your fuel pump and distribution. But lets hope the culprit is here. Helpful ? Good day.

Nissain Terrano Runs pourly when under quarter of a tank of diesel but fine when over quarter


the fuel tank may need cleaning, sediment appears to be blocking the pick up tube when tank is at quarter, or the pick up tube may be broken at that height and the system cavitates at 1/4 tank

Well, the fuel pump may be going bad. There's a fabric screen on the pick up tube in the gas tank that may be plugged. Look in the gas tank for sludge build uo.

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. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Truck dies, acts like it is getting to much fuel, used a quarter tank of gas in 8 miles


Clogged Gas Filter

Worn out & Blocked Exhaust Converter

Bad Ground at Fuel Pump

The different gas gauge readings would indicate a ground
issue with the sending unit in the fuel tank & possibly the
fuel pump shares the same ground or it is worn out.

I would check fuel pressure with a gauge & the fuel may be
there, but not enough volume

A fuel pump can last 4 years or 18 years

I was parked on a slight grad in a driveway. The gauge registered there was a quarter tank of gas. The car would not start. We added 3 gal. of gas to the tank. Still would not start. Called On-star road...


It is possible that the car was at an angle enough to keep the pick up tube from picking up fuel,But with a 1/4 tank of gas you would think it had enough gas in tank, could be that the pick up tube is broke of short in the tank. I have seen it a few times in the past. Pick up tube gets to vibrating no question, it can and has happened..

I have a 1995 dodge dakota v6 sport truck that starts skipping when it gets to a half or a quarter tank of gas?


Hi There. Let's see if we can help. If truck runs normally after filling the tank, next time it acts up and you add fuel, record how much fuel you added. You then need to determine how many gallons your tank holds. A quick phone call to your local Dodge dealers parts dept with the VIN number will usually get you that info. Next, refering back to your notes, if you have a 20 gallon tank, it acted up at 1/4 full, then you should have added approx 15 gallons! This simple test verifies that the fuel gauge is reporting fuel level correctly. If it is, then there is most probably an issue with the fuel pick-up tube or fuel pump strainer in the tank not extending to the bottom of the tank. Inspect the exterior bottom of the tank. Are there indications of damage to outside bottom of tank? Is it pushed up or deformed? Fuel tanks, especially on pickups, are prone to damage from running over something. If no visible damage is apparent, have you had the fuel pump replaced or did the problem arise after the fuel pump assembly was replaced?. Summary: If fuel gauge reads right and no visible damage to tank is apparent, then the tank needs to come down for removal and inspection of the fuel pump module. Good Luck!

Fuel-spit back from my 2005 Dodge Durango


WOO stop there is a major recall with the 05 durangos the check valves get stuck they are recalling the gas tanks on thousands of those car. that is a big fire hazard. Go to the dealer I garente ur vehcle is recalled u may have not gotten the notice in the mail yet. Please rate if this helps.

Here is a copy of the dealer recall notice.

2005 (HB) Dodge Durango
NOTE: This recall applies only to the above vehicles built from October 13, 2004
through November 30, 2004 (MDH101300 through 113023).
The fuel tank inlet check valve on about 18,900 of the above vehicles may stick in
the open position. This can cause fuel to spill out of the filler tube when the
vehicle is being refueled. Fuel in the presence of an ignition source can result in a
fire.
The fuel tank inlet check valve must be tested for proper operation. Vehicles with
a sticking check valve must have the fuel tank replaced.

When fuel drops below 1/2 tank wont start, sometimes stalls when running. Can fuel pump be losing prime when tank gets lower? When I add fuel then pump accelerator it starts


You may have a problem in your tank....sounds like a faulty pick up tube? maybe screen is dirty and if you have a pinhole in tube, it would act like that.

Runs rough when low on fuel


Probably a leak in the flexible line that connects the pump to the metal line. Or the pump itself.
