When it reaches 1/4 tank and starts to act up does adding gas to the tank cure the symptom?

    Based on what your symptoms are I suspect that your gas gage is reading wrong, at 1/4 tank indicated you are really almost out of gas, the electric fuel pump inside the gas tank starts picking up air bubbles, this is a common problem on older cars as the sending units inside the tank start to develop open spots in the variable resistor that reads the gas level, to save allot of money and time i would suggest that you keep the fuel level above 1/4 tank, or you can remove the gas tank and replace the sending unit inside the tank, a very messy job, Please let me know so I can assist you in doing this is you want to change the part.

open the oil fill cap look inside (the hole in the valve cover ), is the camshaft turning? if not the cogs are stripped off the timing belt belt
note:i believe this engine is an interfearence engine. meaning when the cogs strip off the belt or it breaks, the valves can and usually do
