04 X3 full all the time

I don't have the luxury of running the 04 X3 2.5 200k down to the refill amber light. It must be kept full or at the least half. Once past the half she acts up drives with burps, on sharp turns she threatens to stall and any lower she will stall. She'll start back up but will not go over 55...maybe 60mph. Fill her up and she eats up the road . Replaced fuel filter and pump little over a year ago. Relay maybe? Change out the fuel filter again? I have confidence in the gas I buy.
Anyone have this experience or know of...help is greatly appreciated...Thanks!

Wel.today I drove her past the shakes and hiccups. Then she smoothed out for city driving. I'll drive her down to where the pic shows... quarter tank...then I'll fill up again.

Why did you replace the fuel pump in the first place?

Were you experiencing these issues and then replaced the pump or did this start happening after you replaced it?

Sounds like a fuel starvation issue if it doesn't happen with a full tank

Thanx. C-Bass
Research is pointing directly to fuel suction jet pump. Is that what you're trying to say?

Pretty much. You're not getting enough fuel after it drops to a certain level.

You said you had replaced the fuel pump, why? What issues were you having?

Just curious what issues you were having that made you change the pump.

Was it a new fuel pump?

Check this link out. Lots of good information
