99 legacy wagon won't fuel tank

most commonly the evap systems vent solenoid is plugged or inoperable causing pressure to build in the fuel tank as you fill up. this high pressure triggers the gas pump nozzle to shut off as it would if the tank had been filled. replace canister vent

1990 subaru legacy wagon fuel injectors are not getting fuel to start it

Check the pressure to the fuel rail then check it at the line before the fuel pressure regulator, it should be between 55 and 80 psi at the rail and 100 psi before the regulator, if you don't have pressure before the regulator then you have a fuel pump issue, if the rail pressure is low then you may need to replace the regulator.

Fuel gauge doesn't work. checked fuses, didn't help

The issue may be the the in tank fuel gauge float. Over time these can corrode and/or get gummed up which would cause it to get stuck. Another issue maybe the wires running from the in-tank pump to the gauge cluster, if one of the wires has become loose or broken, this would cause the issue as well.

hi it can either be two things, 1st being the fuel gauge itself in the dash it maybe sticking or need recalibrated, and second it maybe the sender itself which it located on the fuelpump in the tank

After buying a 1995 subaru wagon 2 weeks ago i notice when i go around corners it stalls the guy i bought it from tells me that its because it has a two sump fuel tank and that gas cannot get to the...

Hi they do have a two sump fuel tank as they have the rear driveshaft running through the middle of the fuel tank so they use a transfere pump to pump fuel from one sump to the main one with the pick up tube so he is right in a way, however the only problem that would cause this is the transfer pump and it would do it all the time if that were the case id would think the prob maybe the main fuel pump itself maybe having a loose wire

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.

Ack like it is running low on fuel while driving or stop

Crazybonezz, check your fuel pressure, should be 50 psi from the pump or 30 psi within the system 'loop'.
