I think theres something wrong!!!!!!

So last Sunday I got in a car accident, and now my gas tank has to be full all the time or it will die on me~ and I am terrified to drive it, because I go to the gas station and fill it up the rest of the way, and it only cost me 1.00-3.00 to fill it up. If anyone knows anything about cars please tell me what this means and how or if I can fix it!
Thanks alot!
Alicia

93 plymouth sundance

Its a 1993 Plymouth Sundance. And its kind of a funny story. I was backing out of my friends driveway onto a street of course, and this guy comes barreling down the street. he crashes into me, and the cops and ambulance come, but were both fine....at the time, just a little, wellfor me....more than a little freaked out. So we exchanged info and everything, and then the next day at work I was taking my last break and he walks into the break room, and was like.."its you!" I couldnt believe that he works at the same place i do! It was pretty funny tho!

ha! Maybe you will get married and have a great story to tell your grandkids!

Make him fix it whatever the problem is. You might have a leak in your gas tank, or something wrong with the distribution system, or that little gas gage thingie might be off caliber. I'ts an older car, we had a buick skylark once.

I say sell it and get a new one!

golf 3's don't usually start to make bubbling noises.. a golf is almost indestructable. why don't you have it checked out, so they can tell you what it'll cost to fix it, and then try a different place to see what it costs there? that's what i always do!

1997 VW Golf

Jeremy used to have one...I am making him write his thoughts...







The first thing I would check with gurgling sounds would be the Radiator & or the the Heater (the two on VWs, ,especially water cooled, are notorious for failing). Is it running hot more than occasionally for this heat? These are the hottest days of the year, so cooling system failures I understand you can't get a new one now, but from now on consider VWs as expensive as Beemer, Volvos, Saabs, & Benzes.
