    Got a problem that hopefully sum1 can help me with. I have a 92 integ. There is something wrong with the gas gauge/tank/etc. I can fill the car up to a full tank and it shows that i have a full tank of gas but as soon as i reach a half a tank of gas, the car dies on sharp turns and sudden stops so basically i drive with a half a tank of gas and i have to re-fuel everytime it hits half a tank. My rents bought me the car with the problem but i have yet found a starting point to try to fix the problem. Any advice?

    well it works. the "little plastic thingy" isnt broken. it moves and everything when i fill it up and when i use the car, i thought it had to be something internally. idk

    get a new fuel pump and sending unit, that should solve your problem.

    just fill up and reset your odometer every time. keep track of mileage. if it dies when you know there is gas in there, you have narrowed it down to something other than the instrumentation. then shoot for the fuel pump and sending unit like welfare said.
