    Normally this has to do with the routing of the fuel fill and venting. Make sure that the neck is not damaged at all

Town and Country Van running out of gas and guage says half a tank what could be the problem?


If your fuel gauge is showing you in accurate readings this is normal to all vehicles that are not used to fill-up gas full regularly but sometimes the cause of the inacuracy is due to faulty float valve in the gas tank you need to replace it

Unfortunately for you this is a device used to prevent the fuel pump running dry and burning out all the time. It also prevents any gunk/ water in the tank from being picked up and blocking filters and injectors and wearing out the gears in the fuel pump. You are also not aware that it is false economy to run so low as when the price of fuel goes up you do not have enough to get you to a cheaper service station and so you always pay full price.

2006 ford f150 6cyl. Beeping while driving. Several beeps then stops. And again a few miles later. Now it won't start. Like not getting fuel or timing off. Where do I start????


Sound like the low fuel warning beeper. I would start by looking at the fuel gauge to see if it is on empty. If it is a couple gallons of gas may solve the problem. Unless you burnt up the fuel pump by running out of gas. This will set you back about $800-$1,000. You can buy a lot of gas for that kind of money!

Why is gas gauge not working correctly since fuelpump was replaced.


Is this a flex fuel vehicle. If so, call the dealership and ask the parts dept. if there is a gauge module (perhaps behind the instrument cluster). This may be the culprit and needs to be replaced.

I have a 2000 Grand Prix SE and car specs say that it has a 68 liter gas tank. I converted that into gallons, and its about 17.8 gallons. when i refueled, the gas pump only said it put in 12 gallons when...


make sure you fuel tank float isn't becoming saturated with gasoline. If the gauge reads full when it is indeed full, you probably don't have a short in the wire that goes to your fuel float sending unit. If that wire is bare and shorts out it will say you tank is empty since it works on resistance open or unplugged the gauge would read full, closed is or going to ground the gauge will read empty. I would think the float might be bad or the float arm got stuck down when you turned a sharp corner. I had one of these cars but I don't remember exactly where the fuel level sending unit is located and if you need to remove the fuel tank to gain access to the sending unit. I hope this helps you

Car wont start,put 8 gallons of gas,new fuel filter and gas gauge still shows empty.checked fuses,fine.is thier a fuel reset button.


No, but if you put fuel and the gauge shows empty, then you have a loose connector near the gas tank. If car doesnt start, then it is for sure that the connector of the fuel pump is loose. Reconnect the fuel pump and you are gonna be fine.

99 rodeo ran out of gas now no start


If you can hear the pump run and you get no fuel its the pump, If it blew the fuse i would say the pump tied up. That happens when you run around on empty a lot, gas is what keeps pumps cool when you run under 1/8 of a tank pump is not submerged in gas to keep cool hense pump burns up.
