Suddenly the car stalls while driving down the road sometimes it will start after a few mins sometimes it wont. It acts like its out of gas but has had at least 1\4 tank in it every time its happened


I had this happen to my car..loosen the gas cap.and see if this helps.it might set off the check engine light .but if it goes away then you know to get a new cap.it sorta works like a gad can with a weep hole ...if you put your thumb over the hole the gas doesn't run out as fast your thumb is the cap.let say ...most caps today have a diaphram.that let's air into the tank.so gas cam flow...most caps are plastic.but the diaphram is stainless.after awhile something is gonna break. .....anther thing could be the sending unit in the gas tank has lifted.it's not all the way down or reading gas level in tank correctly.do this with a rubber mallet.smack the bottom of the tank .but not to dent it see if this fixes your problem. If it doesnt.you'll have to take it to your mechanic.

Why does gas pour from bottom of car when it is being filled up and reaches full


Check your fill hose for holes or where the hose and tank connect.
If not there. Might have to drop tank and check all lines and
fuel pump gasket.

Thee new fuels today go bad after around 3 weeks because of the ethonol content. Put a can of Sea Foam in the gas tank see if that helps clean it out. Best bet is to drain the tank put new fuel in it with a can of Sea Foam, then give it a good long run until the tank is empty. Re fill the tank and put the correct amount of Stabil in the with the gas, this will stop the gas from turning into sugar and it works for years.
Good luck

Where is the fuel relay for a 1993 volvo 850 glt located? Ran out of gas a few weeks back, car wouldn't start a week after that. Replaced distributor cap and plugs, went to change fuel pump but it seems...


THE RELAYS SHOULD BE UNDER THE RADIO ON THE PASSENGER SIDE LEFT KICK PANEL. JUST AS A REMINDER, A FUEL PUMP SHOULD NEVER BE TESTED UNLESS IT IS INSIDE THE TANK. THEY TEND TO FAIL IF TESTED OUTSIDE THE FUEL TANK. HOPE THIS HELPS YOU. LET ME KNOW. BEST OF LUCK. THANKS FOR USING FIX-YA. I''LL BE HERE IF YOU HAVE ANY OTHER QUESTIONS.

Need to replace fuel pump for my 1998 dodge ram 4x4.


there is an easier way to replace the fuel pump than dropping the tank. I replaced mine last week in about 30 min. I simply took the bed off only six or eight bolts depending on bed size, a few tail light wires and filler neck and over flow. might need someone to help get the bed off though.

Maybe jack it up and look at it. That might be a good start. And no it is not a difficult task to change if you are have mechanical abilities. And a few tools.
