Try e85 again as longas your car supports the flex fuel... also sometimes fuel will act weird when weather changes from hot to cold because of the additives fr fuel line freezeup...

I thought my 2008 Escape 2.3L 4cyl could run on E85, but when I got through the 1st 1/4 tank, my ck eng lite came on. Is this a result of the fuel or something else?


I don't think any of fords four cylinders are e85 compliant. The escape 3.0 liter didn't become e85 compliant until 2010 if you vehicle was e85 compliant it would have a flex fuel emblem on the side of it and it would have a sticker on the fuel door. Your check engine light is most likely because of the e85. If it's running ok. Burn of that tank and then return to regular gas. The check engine light should go out after a couple of fill ups.

I had the same problem since May with my 2006 Nissan Pathfinder brough it to my dealer 4 times during the course if 3 mos. Then I finally called Nissan Consumer and filed a complaint. Since this was due to a recall that was done to my car, there was no charge. They had to put a whole new fuel gauge sensor. I suggest to take it to a Nissan dealer because there is a recall for Fuel Gauge faulty reading that was put out in March or so 2010, so your car would qualify for the recall at no cost to the customer.

I had this problem as well. Took it to the garage and it was a $700 bill the part alone was $440 they had to drop the gas tank - and since then it's not been working right. The fan clutch went a week later another $700 bill. Picked it up and it was still making the same sound - garage replaced another sensor without charging me--picked it up and three days later the service engine light came on. Back to garage and another $80 part was needed under the hood. All this with just 52,500 miles and I keep it well maintained. Not a happy camper at all! Holding my breath but it's been only two days so far so good.

Remove the fuel filter and empty it into a glass jar...If you see any water at the bottom, likely there is far more in the tank (there is at least a gallon or more below the fuel pickup) If there's water in there tank needs to be drained and cleaned.
