1996 Pathfinder stalls when momentum or gravity forces gas to front of tank.


Technically it shouldn't happen.
The sock filter for the pump is about a quarter inch off the bottom of the tank. As long as there is a couple of gallons of gas in the tank it should not matter what the truck is doing.
Its possible the filter is damaged or not in the right place, or the sending unit is off and you have less gas than you think.
I should also tell you running the truck with less than a quarter tank of fuel is tough on the pump and will shorten the life of it. The pump uses gasoline for lubrication and to keep it cool.

Put $15.00 gas in my 2001 Esteem, and the fuel gauge didn't move? I just purchased this car last week, and really love it. But I really need to know how much gas is in it! Thanks


You have to drop the gas tank to fix this. Let me know if your up to it and I will help you through it. Also the level switch is part of the sending unit, With the fuel pump. New will be seberal hundred dollars.Installed at a garge will be $500. to $700.00. If you want to replace just the switch , you can get a sending unit at a junk yard for around $75.00

When my fuel runs low, approximately 1/4 tank, my car acts as if it's out of gas and dies. I originally thought broken gauge; obvious, right? However, when I filled it up; it didn't take a full tank. ...


funny that you mention ' Dark Matter ' -- there is a possibility that you might have water contamination in the tank (?), you can try and get some gas additives that remove water from the fuel. also, there is the possibility that fuel pick up line has been damaged and is not getting fuel from as low in the tank as it use to.

Your gauge is reading high ... I think you are out of gas. You should calculate your actual Miles Per Gallon - find out what the capacity of your tank is and fill accordingly. For esample, you actually get 15 miles per gallon, your tank is 20 gallons - you should be able to drive about 300 miles between fillups. At 250 miles, start looking for a station.

2004 mazda 6 with 3.0l V6..WHen the gas guage falls below a quarter tank the car shutters really bad getting on and off the interstate. Almost as if no gas is getting pushed to the engine. Dealer ship said...


Find out how many gallons your fuel tank holds. Once it falls below a 1/4 tank and starts to shutter. Proceed to the nearest gas station and fill up. If you fill it up with 12 gallons and your tank holds 12 gallons then your fuel gauge is off. So it should be reading empty instead a 1/4 tank.

2000 Ford Expedition Starting problem


If the fuel gauge drops off when you are driving then its a sending unit problem that means you have to drop the tank and replace the float and sending unit. This is a common problem for alot of cars because of cheap gas. If you have to drop the tank check the fuel pump canster for dirt because of cheap gas. Replace the fuel pump strainer and fuel pump filter. If the car or truck has about 100,000 miles you might want to change the fuel pump at that time also just to cover your back. If you take it to a shop they will charge you at least $900 to start. But if you do it yourself it will cost you about $200 dollars maybe alittle more.

1995 Saab 900 Won't Take A Fill Up


Sorry if this gets posted twice. I have a 95 Saab 900, which I just acquired. I can get only about 4 or 5 gallons in at a time. The best analysis I found was this one where the man pinpoints a stuck valve in the gas tank, and tells of what he did to address it.: http://www.quasimotors.com/9_5_gas_fill_prob.htm

1997 Chevy s10 Pick up fuel gauge


The most likely problem is the sender unit in the tank is stuck.
Sender units are relatively cheap and easy to change.
Autozone probably carry them on the shelf.
