SOURCE: 2000 Ford Expedition Starting problem

If the fuel gauge drops off when you are driving then its a sending unit problem that means you have to drop the tank and replace the float and sending unit. This is a common problem for alot of cars because of cheap gas. If you have to drop the tank check the fuel pump canster for dirt because of cheap gas. Replace the fuel pump strainer and fuel pump filter. If the car or truck has about 100,000 miles you might want to change the fuel pump at that time also just to cover your back. If you take it to a shop they will charge you at least $900 to start. But if you do it yourself it will cost you about $200 dollars maybe alittle more.

SOURCE: My check engine light comes

There is a problem for sure if it wont let you fuel, i would go to another shop it sounds like this shop is not too good, your problem could be a stuck closed vent valve or a blocked vent hose, may have a sipers web blocking the vent hose. whats happening is the system is not venting and it turns on the eng light and also when you are fueling its building pressure and shuts pump off, the air is not venting out , good luck.

Fuel gauge not working on my 2002 Pont. Grand Am SE light came on and won't go off so I don't know how much gas is in my car


Normally when the gas indicator light comes on, you have about 2 gallons left. Fill up your gas tank and reset your trip counter. Next time your gas indicator light comes on, check how many miles are on your trip counter. Use that number as a guide to when you should fill up with gas. Remember to always reset the counter every time you fill up. Good luck!

How much fuel is left when the low fuel light comes on


It varies for every car. Usually 1-1.5 gallons when the low fuel light comes on. I drove my last '93 Ford Taurus around until the gauge said it was empty. Lifted the car and took the gas tank off and it had 3 or more gallons still in it. Here's some fun, zero your odometer, fill the gas tank and drive it until the low fuel light comes on. Then drive it till it dies out, obviously somewhere near home or where someone can drop off a full gas can.

How many gallons left in the gas tank when the fuel warning light comes on?


I would say between 1 and 2. Usually it is 2 gallons of gas, 40-50 miles worth.

When the gas light comes on how much gas do i have left in the tank?


Hi:
I am pretty sure that the light comes on when you have approx 1/8 tank left. In my honda, with a 12 gallon tank, that equated out to 1.5 gallons, or approx 45 driving miles on flat land in the city. Of course, you should check your average miles per gallon with your driving style , as well as filling the tank once the light comes on, to see how many gallons are left, and you will have an accurate number!

Gas Light comes on


Hi,

The amount of mile that you can drive after your gas light comes on differs from car to car. Most cars have around 2 gallons in the reserve tank. Generally you should be able to go 50 miles after the gas light comes on, but that's pushing it. Of course sometimes you can go much more, but that depends on the type of driving you are doing (city or highway, is it a flat road & the condition of your car).

Sediments sink to the bottom of the gas tank & I don't like the thought that these get sucked into my engine, I think you would like to avoid as much as possible replacing your cars engine.

Calculate the size of your reserve tank

1) Read the car manual.
2) The moment your light comes on, fill the tank to the very top, now subtract the number of gallons you filled from the size of your gas tank, and you have the size of your reserve tank.


If you like adventures, and you know your car mpg, the moment the light comes on, bring your trip meter to zero, & drive the car till it comes to a stop. Now you know both the estimated miles you can go on your reserve tank & you can calculate its size. Make sure you have a can of gas in your trunk, to fill up after the car stops. This is the least recommended solution.

I don't recommend pushing it beyond 50 miles after the gas light comes on.

All the best.
