1992 caprice on my 1992 chevy caprice the gas tank has started to expand, i mean way more than normal, and when it does that the gas gage goes hay wire, then shows empty as the tank expands more. the only way i have found to releave this is to open the gas cap, but i have to leave it open while i drive so it wont cause the problems. i changed the purge valve in the engine compartment bt the canaster, but that did not solve the problem, any ideas would be helpfull. thanks

Sounds like something might be wrong with the charcoal canister. If not that, it's definalty something with the fuel evaporative system.

On my 93 Chevy caprice the dash lights and cluster won't work. Gas gauge went so far up that I can no longer see it.


First check and see if the dash light dimmer control on the headlight switch is turned down all the way, which shuts off the dash lights. As far as the gas gage goes that is more then likely a defective gas tank fuel level sending unit.

Chevy Blazer no gas will not start. Changed filter, gas gage lies about level. Goes to zero when starting. Full tank.


Possible bad fuel pump. Have someone crank the engine while rapidly hitting the bottom of the fuel tank with your fist agressively. You can also use a hammer and hit the tank using the flat of the hammer head while the engine is being cranked. If it starts or tries to start, suspect a bad fuel pump

I have a 1992 chevy caprice.when car sits overnight i go to start it and it cranks over probably 7or 8 times then starts and runs good.i had a 1977 chevy with a carburator and it fired up in about 1.5 to 2...


No this is not normal at all and you have a problem. FI engines should start immediately and run great without any hesitation. It can be a partially clogged fuel filter. Replace the fuel filter ASAP. It can also be a weak fuel pump or defective fuel pressure regulator especially on a 18 year old car. Fuel pump is located on top and inside the fuel tank. The tank must be removed to replace the fuel pump. After replacing the fuel filter and fuel pressure test will tell you if the pump is going bad.

1992 Cevy Corsica: Boiling over out of overflow? Gage Normal


This can happen if you have a blown head gasket...cylinder pressure enters the cooling system, driving the coolant out. To check this have a shop do a hydrocarbon test for the cooling system. Problem can also be caused by a bad cap, so check that first.

Gas cap. pressurized air retentiion


Well, filling the tank will take up the space having to be pressureized. But if the cap is defective, The cap would be cheaper to replace and its needed anyway.

Also do not let tank run low because fuel in tank keeps in tank pump cool. This is why the pump is in the tank.
