Are you sure the fuel gage is reading accurately most gages just use a resistor to gage how much fuel is in the tank over time its easy for the gage to read off could be running out of gas unless you know for sure it still has a half a tank?

    no it definitely does have gas

  • par sims Nov 10, 2010

    will it start back up after it dies? it is possible you have alot of trash in your tank when it gets lower on gas its more likely to pick up trash and cloge the filter. inside the tank your sendind unit tube could also have a hole in it and loses prime when it gets below that hole. is the fuel pump in the tank?

    It will start back up but it won't idle properly, if you keep foot on gas it will run but the minute you take foot off gas it dies. Yes the fuel pump is in the tank.

    It is an odd problem. One thing i woould check is the fuel filter tho when you have fuel related problems it is most the time the easiest cheapest and very common fix. I will do some research and get back to you as soon as i can this is a hard one when i cant be there to check it out for myself. Like a said if you get a chance checking that filter may be a good start. Thank you.

  • par sims Nov 11, 2010

    one thing to check there is a fuel check valve where you can hook up a pressure gage and see if you are getting the correct fuel pressure.

Mazda astina 323 1991 hatchback cuts out turning right but only once half a tank of fuel is reached


Your pick up line in the gas tank either has a hole in it or is broken. This allows the fuel pump to suck in air and loose pressure. The M.A.P. sensor will then get a wrong readimg and cause the engine to die.. You will want to replace the fuel pump while you gas tank out and open.

Is there a access panel for the fuel pump


No there is no access panel for the fuel pump.The fuel tank has to come out.This will be easier if the tank is closer to empty.Also make sure and relieve the fuel pressure before removing any fuel lines or you will get fuel sprayed all over.Just remove the fuel pump fuse and start the vehicle and let it run til it dies.Turn the key off and reinstall the fuse and do not turn the key back on til the fuel pump is replaced.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Car cuts off while driving will not start til after it sits for a few minutes


It sounds like it may be a fuel filter. When the engine is running there is a vacuum created to send fuel to the engine. If there is dirt in the fuel line, it soon blocks the fuel and the engine will die. After the car sits and the vacuum is released, the fuel will flow again until it soon plugs up. Replace your inline filters. It is an inexpesinve fix. If that doesn't work, it may be the in tank filter, you will need a mechanic to replace in tank filters.

It sounds like it's gonna die when i start it, like it don't want to stay running, but it don't die. could it be bad Gas? i just changed the fuel pump 3 months ago. any help would be nice


Hello and yes this can be bad gas. This also can be something that can be fixed with a simple fuel or air filter change as well. I would do a basic tune up of spark plugs and wires which may fouled out it sounds like, oil and filter, air filter, and fuel filter. I would also change the distributor cap and rotary button. These few tune up items may help your rough running automobile. If you have any other questions email me and I hope you resolve this issue.

Your fuel level sending unit is not working properly. The fuel pump and sending unit is one thing in the tank. It isn't too bad of a job to replace, it takes about 2 hours. Buy a manual for you car and it'll have step by step instructions on how to do it.
