I have a 2003 VW GLI with approx 227,000 miles.
I've been having an issue with what (seeming like) running out of gas when the gas tank is below 1/2 tank or less. Sometimes the car will just "sputter" & then re accelerate. When the tank is lower (1/4 or less) the engine will die completely. When it die's, I pull over...wait anywhere from 30 seconds to 3 minutes & the engine starts right back up. (There are usually repeated attempts to re-start the engine & it will not fire) Once it does...I am then able to travel multiple miles again (till the next stall out) Once I fill the tank to full again....no "interuptions" occur again till the above scenaro comes about.
I have changed the fuel pump, fuel filter, O2 sensors (ft & rear), mass airflow sensor, crank speed sensor, master motor relay, fuel pump relay, & had the tank completely "peered into" to look for foreign matter. This issue has been occuring for at least A YEAR!
Thank you in advance,
