    My car had this issue, after I replaced the in-line fuel filter. Much car emust be taken when replacing theis filter, once the car has been in teh salt for more thatn 5 years. The gas tank sending unit will rust at the output steel tube stub, and replacement is very expensive. Also see rough idle and stalling issues.
