I reckon its a dodgy pump but they dont want to wait for warrenty payment,when you pay on the nose.and they could still claim warrenty as well, doing a window job for the signature.

2005 Suzuki Reno would not start. It has been running sluggish sometimes almost like it wants to die. But not like last week when it did die everytime you let off the gas had to replace the O2 sensor?=

a tune up. did you do the service on the car.
filters, spark plugs?
did scan it, to see what DTC errors are set? that is required.
and 02 sensor can die at 100,000 miles the design life span. "bosch"
which engine, option.
1.4 L I4 (petrol)
1.6 L I4 (petrol)
1.8 L I4 (petrol)
2.0 L I4 (petrol)
2.0 L I4 (diesel)
we can not help you , unless. engine is stated and country.
www, the world wide web, make it so we can NOT guess any of that.

the ECU/PCM on your car goes to GREAT efforts to prevent stalls.
the top reason for stalls are:
1: never doing the service per listed items in the glove box guide.
2: EGR stuck open. (if your's has one, some dont)
3: lean air fuel mixture, (lots or reasons and tests)
4 gross rich air fuel mixture casing gross misfiring and stalling.

or something worse. there is always that. eg: burned head valves. etc.

We bought a 2004 Chrysler Pacifica, it has 65,000 miles. A couple of months after we got it, the fuel gauge started acting up. When it hit 1/2 tank it would go down to empty then go back up, fuel was hard...

i had the same problem when i bought a 2004 pacifica with 44k for about the first year. the car never stalled or broke down, the problem eventually went away.

Weak engine power & high fuel consumption?

Is there any service engine lights on ? is it always or just, hot /or cold what is the miles on it , and have you had any maintenance done. in last year or two? / it could be some thin very simple, like plugged air filter/bad temp sensor/or fuel filter / or just Warren out spark plugs / but all this is just a guess unless we can git a little more info. if no service engine light, then i would start with basic tune up maintenance/ least expensive first/ last of all it does sound as tho it could be a clogged catalytic converter,[ But a clogged fuel filter will too.] so i am not advocating any thin expensive/ only to start with basic maintenance first that may salve your concern/please let us know if this is helpful and please if we can be of any further assistance feel free to ask. Thank You.
