I have a 2001 Seabring. I went to strart it today and it would not start. It attempted to turn over, but was slow and sounded like it was skipping a little during the starting process. It has 189,000 miles. I have had nothing like this happen before. Also, when my gas gauge gets to 1/4 tanks, I am actually out of gas. The electronic reader in the dash reads when the tank reads, but I have ran out of gas before having 1/4 tank full of gas. Suggestion on these two issues?

Car started and idle, when I would press on gas pedel the engine would stall. Let up on gas and engine would idle, but it sounded like it was running on 3 or 4 cylinders. Pressed on gas again engine would stall again and let up on gas the engine would idle roughly, when I let it idle the engine reduced in RPMs and then stopped. It would not start again. So I left the car for about hour, tried to start it and it started right up. It had a rough idle pressed on the gas the engine stalled I let up

Sometimes when I try to start the truck, it won't turn over the first time, then the second time it will start fine, can't idle for too long; engine will shut off on it's own. When driving about 10 to 15 miles, it will shutter like it want's to shut off and I step on the gas to get it going. Driving and the gas petal will push back at me and the car feels like it want's to shut off again, but I gently put gas to it and it goes.

My 2002 Pontiac Montana had been parked outside in 20 degree weather for 3 days. I drove it without letting it warm up very much and as I was accelerating to pull onto the highway, it started jerking and the engine started knocking very heavily. It was like there was a clog in the gas line or like a car does when it is running out of gas. Feels like something needs to be cleared. I pulled off the road and let the car idle for a while, then revved the engine a few times. The same thing happened.
