Hessitation w/ Low Fuel Level
About 2 months ago my Jeep Started hesitating while having low fuel levels. Its only when you are going around corners, or if its really low going straight and stomp on it, you can put the pedal on the floor and it does nothing then BAM theres the power- its not a transmission problem. I did drop the tank around the same time the problem started to check for a fuel leak witch i was unable to find (It pisses fuel out the top when very full- have read i need to replace my fuel pump gasket) Anyone have any ideas???
I would think that this is normal. When you go around a corner the gas will slosh to the side and if its low enough there wont be any fuel reaching the pickup. Same with accelerating in a straight line, as you move forward from a stop or lower speed quickly, the fuel is pushed to the rear of the tank.
Clogged fuel pump filter. or bad fuel pump. That is NOT normal, it doesnt happen from the factory so why would you think that it is normal? If it is leaking, you either need to replace the gasket, or if you have had the fuel pump out recently, the top probably isnt tight enough. (its pretty tough to get it tight with out the tool, but it can be done with a BFS and rubber mallet)
