Check Fuel Pump/Pick Up Line & Filter in tank, if the Tank is Dented or Damaged that could cause it not to pickup that last 1/4 Tank. It could MAINLY be your fuel pump though. Because with the car full of gas, the fuel pump does have to work near as hard. Hope this helps, James Booth

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.

My jeep keeps losing power when it's being driven. Occassionally it also stalls when it loses power. When it does lose power, no gauges change or no dashlights come on. We've have it checked...


PROBABLY YOUR FUEL PUMP IS GOING OUT MY FRIENDS DID THE SAME THING.GO TO AUTOZONE AND RENT THE FUEL PRESSURE GAUGE TOOL AND SCREW IT INTO THE PORT ON THE FUEL RAIL YOU SHOULD GET AT LEAST 45 50 POUND OF PRESSURE.IF NOT REPLACE FUEL PUMP AND BOTH SCREENS IN TANK. TOTALL PRICE OF ABOUT 125.00 DOLLARS AND 2HRS OR LESS IN LABOR. IF CANT DO YOURSELF EXPECT TO PAY BETWEEN 350 AND 450.DONT TAKE TO DEALER 700 OR 800.

Backfier and sputtering,almost stalls going around corners


couple of things, does this problem occur with a full tank of fuel?if it happens with a quarter tank or less i would remove fuel pump to inspect the sock filter,sediment in tank sloshes around and clogs this sock up when fuel level is low,another possibility that the air /fuel ratio sensor maybe out of spec usually causing "lean" misfires, good luck

My stratus 2004 seams to work find but smoe times when acelerate to start moving the engine stalls then works ok, engine light at the panel does not come out when stalling


If your problem seems to be worse when the fuel tank is at a quarter or lower, then your problem is the fuel pump. I had this problem on my daughters car, asked every car guy I knew and a couple of dealer service techs no one could help. Since everything else worked and there was no problem if the fuel tank was above a quarter tank I decided to check the tank baffles. It turns out there are no baffles in this tank the fuel pump has a little reservoir built into the bottom with a little flapper button that is supposed to let fuel in, but not out. Anyway a new pump fixed my problem. Good Luck!

Loses of power and engine miss


it may be fuel pump ? how much fuel is in the tank ? these trucks are famous for their fuel pumps overheating when the fuel level gets below half or sometimes evem a quarter tank. if the fuel tank is full you may want consider replaceing the fuel filter (as a good routine maitenance procedure)and see what happens then.
