Default 2001 Protege issues

Hey guy, I am at my witts end with this car, it has an issue where the car car gets low in fuel (about 1/4 tank left) and it behaves like it has completely run out. We have changed the tank, a new fuel pump and a new fuel assembly and it still does the same thing. and yes the car has fuel in it. If i put gas in the car it works like there is no issue at all. I am at a full lost.

What i might try and do is to put a long screwdriver on the top of each fuel injector and check if they are consistency on each one in each condition (full/low fuel). Also it might be the computer's fault, or the emissions system. I hope i can help. If you have any other questions let me know, and give as much information as you can lets try and get you to a full win!

Well, try this. Next time you run low and it starts to starve, stop, open the gas cap, don't add any gas, then close again and see if the runs.
