You might need a new fuel pump. with a full tank of gass it is easy to pump the gass but if the pump is bad it will struggle with 3/4 tank of gass

SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: High fuel consumption

Check the following things: air filter, wheel alignment, and timing belt, all of them if not serviced on time can affect your fuel consumption. I do not think its the heat because I drive my car in Phoenix AZ with temperatures comparable to Dubai and I still get 500+ km/tank.

Good Luck,

SOURCE: 03 honda Odyssey gas smell and check engine light

Did the mechanic check for engine codes with a scan tool? If not, u can have it done at most parts stores for free. Write down any codes they get off the honda's computer, ask them what to do to correct any trouble codes they find, and if it has anything to do w/ the gas smell. Have u checked under the car and in the engine compartment for evidence of gas leaks? Keep in mind that gas evaporates rather quickly, so it can be difficult to spot a leak. Put a large piece of cardboard under the car, and check it for wet spots or stains after parking. Let me know how u make out and if u need further help.

Why does my gas gauge needle never go below 3-4 tank?


I would guess the fuel level sending unit is malfunctioning, deposits sometimes build up on the resistor pack, or there is and open circuit in the resister pack, does the fuel gauge needle do a full sweep from empty to full and back when the ignition key is turn to the run position? This is a cluster self check mode, if it fully sweeps than the cluster is ok, I would suspect it needs a fuel level sending unit which is located in the fuel tank as part of the fuel pump modual but usually can be serviced separately

Do I have a bad fuel pump


Not symptoms of a pump. Sounds more like a bad idle air control valve. run some fuel system cleaned in it and run a full tank of gas to see if it changes.

Volvo engine shuts down when turning a corner


You have a crack in one of the flexible fuel lines inside of your gas tank that lets the pump suck air when ever the gal level is below the level of the crack in the line. It is an easy repair once you remove the fuel pump. Should cost you about 3 dollars if you do the work yourself. To test fill you tank all the way to the top and go turn a corner and see what happens. I bet it will run just fine with a full tank.

I have a 1995 Ford F-150 with a 300 six, it has a full ffront tank and runs like it's running out of gas, I switch it to the rear tank, it runs fine.How do I fix it?


You probably have a bad fuel pump in the front tank. There are other possibilities as well. I have replaced tank switches for this reason also. You need to check for power and ground at the front tank when the switch is in the front tank position and the ignition switch is turned on.

At the wiring connector that goes up to the tank, (on the frame rail next to the tank) the power wire is the RED wire and the ground wire is the ORANGE wire. (The other wires are for your fuel gauge.)

The fuel pump relay will supply voltage to the RED wire for only about 2 or 3 seconds (to prime the fuel rail) when the ignition switch is turned to the ON position, so you will need a helper to check this.

If there is no power, then you should suspect the switch. However, check for power at the switch to verify that it is the switch and not a broken wire between the switch and the tank connector.

If power and ground are both present at the tank connector, replace the front fuel pump.

Under 1/2 tank, truck boggs down when step on gas


It is sludge and water in the tank. When you fill it water goes to the bottem of the tank and the good fuel goes on top where the fuel pump is.

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

Turn 92 Escort 5 speed to right & engine goes dead even in a curv


if you jack up the right side of the car while its running does it die?...........just thinking that maybe the pickup has fallen off of the fuel pump in the gas tank so when the fuel moves to the left side of the tank the end of the pump may not be immersed in fuel.
hope this helps...keep me posted its definitely an interesting problem.....Good luck!

2000 chevy pickup


Most probably if you take out your gas pump/sending unit assembly out of your fuel tank you will find a broken fuel hose on the assembly. The actual pump rests in the bottom of the tank with hoses running to the top of the pump / sending unit assembly. It is probably broken around the 1/2 tank mark. When fuel level is higher than the break in the hose, everything runs fine, but once fuel level reaches under the break, the pump starts pushing fuel out of the break back into the tank and the engine does not recieve enough fuel pressure to run.
