1998 SC1
Dazed Gbentley 1998 sc1 update still stalls close to solving problem

Hello again..George here. I decided to start a new thread. First of all thank you for all the wise words everyone. I really appreciate this site. Ok recap: so I went and got all this work done at mechanic. Fuel pump, crankshaft position sensor,idle air control sensor, and fuel filter done, also took it to get oil change, air filter, new spark plugs,spark plug wires,one coil pack, also I went to get 2 replacement ICMs because at my local junk yard they were only 5dollars each. I put in the best looking one from a 1999 sc1 it worked fine and car ran great. I was so happy. I also replaced driver seat (wouldn't recline) and I got all kinds of things that were missing for interior and parking light and passenger side view mirror ect. Felt like I was on top of the world with a beautiful sounding perfect healthy sounding car. Oh forgot to mention also bought 2 new tires for the back .Then it happened again😱😱 same thing stalled out on highway. Now here's what's new..and i apologize for not figuring this one out long ago. Here's my new problem...If my car gets to half an inch over half a tank of gas that's when it stalls. It keeps repeating this but tends to run longer if I let it sit awhile,however, this time I was near a gas station and happened to have ten bucks left on me. I filled it up and it made it 30 more miles back home no stall at all. Now I can confirm this only happens when it gets closer to half a tank. As much as I prayed it was the cps or the icm it wasn't. I feel like maybe the mechanic did something wrong or there's a failure in fuel pump?? ? I really honestly have no idea now. That fuel pump job nearly cost me 600 with labor not to mention tow so I'm not so happy with this particular mechanic if that's what's wrong.At this point all I can say is at least now I just have to always keep it full to avoid stalling but please let me know what else I can do from here I don't have much money and was really counting on this to be fixed so I could try to get a job. I live 50 miles from town and we have now put more into this car than I've payed for it originally 1200. I really do appreciate you guys and any help or advice is welcome when you have the time thank you Sincerely George
