You may need a tune up. My 'bu got really bad gas mileage and I changed the plugs and wires, the air filter, and flushed the radiator. My gas mileage was like new almost. The best part is it relatively cheap and easy to do.

How far can i go on reserve gas


Reserve is about 10% of the tanks capacity. 15 gallon tank is 1.5 gallons at the empty mark. 30 MPG would be 45 miles. Just a note though, don't trust your gas gauge...

Jeep wrangler is using too much gas


I have a 4cyl 97 jeep wrangler. My fuel economy went from 75-80 miles per 1/4 tank to 55-60 miles per 1/4 tank of gas. I traced this to a bad coolant temp sensor (replace twice), and fouled O2 sensors believed caused by my self by placing too much oil on spector air filter (now wipe off excess and let dry in sun), and using carb cleaner and or gas treatment (stopped using). fuel economy went back up to 75-85 miles per 1/4 tank. (also disruption of sensor input/output signals didn't help from battery sliding into computer wiring harness, which I cured by placing a 1" spacer on rear clamp to keep battery away from computer.)

2002 Malibu, with fuel injection, ran out of gas and won't start. battery and gas are ok. any suggestions?


The fuel pumps don't like to be run out of gas. They use the gas in the tank to stay cool. I would bet you ruined the fuel pump especially if you have never changed the fuel filter.

Try this. With the car in park have somebody crank the car over while you smack the fuel tank with a rubber mallet about dead center and a little to the rear of the tank. If the car starts you will be replacing the fuel pump. Don't wait for it to stop running again. This is a do it yourself trick to see if the fuel pump is bad and is not a repair!

2004 chevy malibu 2.2 driving 60 mph shut down


either you have a fuel pump that went out, or your fuel pump relay went. These fuel pumps last around 100,000 miles, so if you're way under that, it's more than likely the relay, if you're close to that, it could be either.

Chevy malibu fuel filter 02


IT IS LOCATED ON THE REAR SIDE OF THE GAS TANK. IF YOU HAVEN'T REPLACED IT IN THE LAST 30,000 MILES, IT'S DUE FOR ONE.
