I’ll start from the beginning. About a year ago after work I went to start my car and it wouldn’t turn over, just crank and crank and crank. Still 1/4 fuel so that wasn’t the problem. Had it towed to a shop and they replaced the fuel pump. Seemed to work fine after that, HOWEVER I don’t think that was the issue.
My drive from home to work has me driving at 60 mph most of the way then 75-80 for the last 10 miles. With a full tank, I have no problem. With 1/4 tank at 60, I have no problems, but after I take a long right hand circle on ramp to get on the highway, about 3 miles after doing 75 mph, the car cuts out… just dies. I put in the clutch, let it coast for a bit, then pop the clutch and it comes back on and I can get to the gas station.
I have noticed that when the tank gets lower it does get harder to start, it will crank a few times before actually firing up. I thought it might be a clogged fuel cap and I was getting vapor lock but I replaced that and it didn’t fix it. Does anyone have any idea what the problem actually is? Fuel issue SOMEwhere, but where? I’ve heard stories about people spending thousands on new lines and pumps and that still didn’t fix it. Any help would be appreciated. THANK YOU!
