These Sapphires came first with the fuel pump external to the fuel tank, then later on, they were introduced with the in tank pump. Check the operation of the fuel pump at the rear of the car near the fuel tank. I've had some of them where the electrical connector was not secured or plugged in correctly. Check also for blockages on the pump intake. This could also be caused by the sieve that is in the fuel pick-up in the tank that is blocked.
