The next day after an hour or so of driving, I seem to run out of gas again, this time at 1/4 tank according to the gas gauge. Again I put in few gallons of gas, starts right up, I fill up at nearest station and have driven 150 miles since with no trouble.
The first time this happened I had just passed another vehicle. The second time was while I was passing. I just bought this car a few months ago with 41,000 on it. It was in an accident previously and the driver airbag, hood, side panel and passenger side headlight was replaced.
I talk to a mechanic the next day thinking it is the fuel pump, fuel filter, or maybe gas gauge. Mechanic says it's an engine problem as he knows someone that replaced the head, fuel pump, fuel pressure sensor and still has a bit of a problem. He concluded that I'll probably be fine if I keep above half tank. What do you guys think?
have the same problem?
