Drove across country just before the problem started using southern
states gas, not sure of any reason to suspect the gas other than the
poor fuel economy it seemed to produce.
Then had ignition cyl replaced by locksmith who beat the crap out of
my steering column in the process.
Just after that the car would intermittently stall. The engine will
slowly start to sputter, gets worse where the engine will die in about
2 min. If I restart the car after a short time say 30 sec it will run
ok for around 5 to 10 min then start to misfire then eventually stall
Once the car starts to stall it will keep stalling until I get more
gas to where the tank is greater than 1/2 full.
Replaced fuel filter and no change, problem persists!
Problem seems much worse when the gas tank is less than 1/3 full
and will rarely make it to 1/8 full without stalling.
Checked tightness of gas cap when problem started but cap was tight.
Someone said they knew someone who found Ping-Pong balls in their
gas tank, who suffered a similar problem, but I can't see how they
would fit through that little filler hole, even so I can see how a
small plastic baggy or rubber balloons might cause a problem like I am
If any one has any ideas what the problem is or what I should do to try
and fix this myself please reply to this posting.
Thanks for all responces.
