Start your car and with the hood open, give the mass air flow sensor a hard tap. If the engine stumbles when you hit it, the air flow meter is bad. It's located right after the air filter, inline with the air intake hose.

From your description of the problem, I would suggest you check and make sure the ground to your fuel tank and fuel assembly is clean and tight, and no wires are broken. It sounds like you have a bad (loose) ground, which would cause both the fuel gauge to jump around, and the fuel pump to quit unexpectedly, like on a hard corner. Dropping the truck could jiggle the loose connection so that it worked, again. Before spending the $600, make sure your ground is good. If the bad ground is inside the unit, then you will have to get it replaced, but make sure it's not just a loose wire, first.

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

Engine runs bad at half tank or less


Ok ready for this one,new gas cap,its true cars with bad gas caps will cause the check engine light go on,or your problem,it has to be pressurized when full and no air in the tank its ok,but as you use gas and have air in the tank with the low fuel the air pressure is leaking pass the cap,thus losing pressure,too bad you had to fix all the other stuff but look at it as an investment,after this works please give me a fix ya thanks
