Here is a small list of possibilities. Fuel pump starting to go bad causing a low fuel output. Coil has a winding starting to go bad. Throttle position sensor starting to fail after other temperature controlled sensors light up. Oxygen sensor(s) bad, however this is usually symptomatic in a n engine that runs bad all the time. EGR valve bad, getting bad signal, or stuck open by a loose piece of carbon. Good Luck.

My 92 saab runs fine with over half tank,but under half it acts like no gas.


Your fuel pump works better and last longer when the fuel in your tanx is more than half filled because it makes the fuel pump to be fully submerged in the fuel and it cools the fuel pump in that process.

When stored outdoors for any length of time, you can get a substantial amount of condensation to form inside the fuel tank (as much as a half gallon) It will remain at the bottom of the tank and really mess with how it runs. Check fuel filter...Pour contents into a clean glass jar...If any water is found at all, you can bet there is quite a bit in the tank.
