Question about 1999 Ford Escort
I actually have a 2000 model. I have been having some surges and sputtering when I would push the gas. I assumed there was trash in the lines or tank as I tend to run the fuel way too low at times. I put in some gas treatment, filled up and made it about 5 miles when the engine suddenly died while driving. I managed to pull over and the car will not start. When I turn the key over it gives the impression of being out of gas. Help!
Running the tank low (below 1/4) on fuel ruins the fuel pump, it uses tthe gas around it to cool it down, most likely you will need a new fuel pump.
