Then there is a blockage in the fuel line, like a plugged up fuel filter. And it is not necessary to drop the fuel tank to check the sock on the end of the sending unit. There is a access hole to go threw to get at the fuel pump and assembly. The fuel pump needs to be checked with a fuel pressure gauge hooked up in the fuel line to see if it is good or not, but first replace the fuel filter.
