tank get into the red. I filled up 10.6 gal of gas at a 76. As I drive , I sputter, jump and stall the entire way home. What is this about? Never had this problem before. But I also never let the gas tank get below 1/4 of a tank. I had to keep my foot on the accelerator. Even when I was driving the car would sputter and jump then die...in mid drive...

The car had a major checkup 1500 miles ago (2 months)

Any ideas?

Check your fuel filters, you probably sucked up some crud out of the tank (may need to flush tank also) Thats my guess.

The ol fuel filter is always suspect especially if you get sputtering, missing, etc when you mash on it or are going up hills etc -- or any load situation.

best of luck!

What about the fuel return tube inside the trunk (at the wall, next to the fuel fill funnel). I tossed some stuff in my trunk once, dislodged this and had a rough ride home. It was resolved immediately upon reattaching the return tube at the wall.

...pull a spark plug and see if there's a faint orange/brown color on the ceramic part. If so, drain the gas tank.
