Light says 367 miles to empty on dash


This is a readout of the estimated miles remaining in the current tank of gas. It is based on miles traveled since last fill-up versus fuel remaining in tank. Don't trust it, but is can give you indication of your approimate fuel economy.

Check engine light and gas light comes on


your fuel level sending unit in the gas tank is probably bad. mine has gotton so bad i have to use the odometer and just fill my gas tank every 240 miles. i just found a kit to replace the problem sending unit on e-bay for $38 so i am gonna give it a try.

I have a 2004 Eclipse Spider, 51,110 miles on it and my service engine soon light came on yesterday. Can you give me probable causes? What I can do and will there be a chance that it will stall/die while...


Most times the service engine soon light means your oxygen sencor is out. The only way to know for sure is, go have a diagnostic done on it. ask the tech to translate the codes given and get a list. This should at least let you know what is wrong. If you over fill your fuel tank to many times it will cause the light to come on due to insufficant back flow, (vacum effect) in your tank.

I just got a 1999 ford taurus with 140,000 miles on it. all of a sudden when i was out driving today i would stop at a stop light and the car would start shaking a little. after about an hour the service...


My check engine light will come on and my car will run rougher if I put in "subatandard" gasoline for too long. If you look in your manual, it will tell you the same thing. The easiest way for me to fix it was to go to a higher-end gas station like Chevron or Shell, fill up my tank with mid-grade or higher and throw in a bottle of good fuel injection cleaner. The manual says that you need to put at least 8 gallons of fuel in for it to make any difference to the sensors. It has always worked for me. The check engine light has turned off either immediately or within a few miles. I hope this helps!

GMC envoy after I filled gas tank the low fuel light came on and as I was driving it would go off than come back on after a few miles the check engine light come on stayed on and the low fuel light still...


You will need to replace the fuel level sensor which is in the fuel tank.They have a lot of problems because the metal fingers on the sensor wear off and gives you the incorrect readings.This will also cause the check engine light to come on.You will probably have a level sensor code.This will be a lot easier if the fuel level is down to about a quarter tank or less.Also you should be able to get just the level sensor and not have to get the complete fuel pump module.Good luck.

Hi, I have a 2006 Altima with 31,500 miles. Recently, the engine start shaking when car is Idle but I still feel the shake when driving or at red lights. My second problem is a weird loud (humming) noise...


You don't need to change the spark plugs since it has only 31.5 K. The plugs should last 60K. There is a an adjustment at the gas cable end at engine to increase the idle a little bit. You can increase rpm at idle to 600 RPM. Since your RPM at idle is low that why it is shaking at idle, red lights. Let me know it it is shaking at high speed ( 2500 RPM)

My low fuel light came on and the gauge read so but upon filling


Sounds like your fuel sending unit may be bad, or you have a hell of a leak. Should still be under warranty.

1995 dodge van falls down when the fuel tank gets to 1/4 of fuel


sounds like a possible pluged fuel filter or a tired fuel pump. the pump is cooled by the gas. so if you work it at 1/4 tank or below it tends to get hot. but towing may make it hot anyway. check fuel pressure and the replace the fuel filter
