offside tank empty near side tank full car turming over wont start seems like fuel starvation
no it just doesn't start but one tank is full and one is empty, the nearside fuel tank is full but the car wont start its like fuels not gettong to the engine.
this indicates that there is a failure either of the in tank fuel pump which transfers fuel from side to side (it may have come dislodged or clogged), or a failure of the main fuel pump itself.
you will need to have both pumps inspected
