Car will sound rough at stop sign, and die out right after I leave the intersection. My dad says that it sounds like maybe fuel pump or idling issue, only does it if we have 1/4 or less gas in the car, anybody with suggestions contact me please!!!
whenever I am at a stop sign or stop light car idle very roughly.
