Question about 2005 Chrysler Town & Country

Have a 2005 T&C. The engine cuts out anytime I

Have a 2005 T&C. The engine cuts out anytime I get to 1/4 tank of fuel. No other issues while tank is above this. Obviously something with the fuel pickup, probably something electrical sensor related but was hoping someone else may have had a similiar issue.
thanks

2005 Chevy Malibu evap sensor won't go off after changing it. Recently had a fuel level system done on the tank.


evap sensor won't go off ? Do you mean the check engine light ? What DTC - diagnostic trouble code ? fuel leveler system done ,your funny ! Fuel gauge sending unit of fuel pump ? With the fuel nozzle shutting off like that, the air in the tank is causing that , which means there is a problem with the Evap vent solenoid or wiring to the vent solenoid .

My car will have high revs or low revs at anytime and also just cuts out while I am driving.


Invest in a cheap OBD fault code reader from Amazon or eBay. This will help you pinpoint the problem(s)

New engine fitted on my grande renault scenic 2004 but it has trouble starting and cuts out when going round corners


Are you low on fuel? Try running around with a mostly full tank.

Usually if a motor cuts out when going around a corner it could be low on fuel, or the pump pickup lines are shot...This also could be an electrical issue with a wire that has gotten into trouble when the engine was swapped in.

The fuel guage on my 2005 F250 super duty 6 liter diesel engine just went to zero and has 3/4 of a tank of fuel any assistance on where to check for a damaged wire or loose connection


wiring harness under dash.
wires coming off top of fuel tank.
check all fuses.
do you do a lot of off roading - you may have cut or pulled a wire out.
finally you may have:
1. a bad fuel tank sending unit - need to drop the tank to replace.
2. a bad fuel gage.
3. a bad instrument panel

Filled truck up with fuel and fuel guage stoped working


There is a TSB for this issue ( TSB 08-2-9 ).

The problem is high sulfur content fuel will cause a problem with the fuel level sending unit, and cause it to read incorrectly.

The 2 times I had this happen, I was not at my normal brand fuel ( had it happen with Shell fuel both times ).

I fueled at 1/2 tank with my normal brand, and then after another 1/2 tank fueled again, and the problem went away.

If you want, the TSB lists new revision fuel level senders, that you can drop the fuel tank, and replace your exiting one with to cure the problem.

The correct P/N depends on your truck cab & bed config, and options

I have a 2005 silverado 5.3 2wd ext cab. the engine loses power when there is a 1/4 tank of gas. when you put gas in the tank the power returns but not quite 100%. what to check?


Sounds like you may have a inaccurate fuel sending card in the tank where the gauge shows 1/4 tank but may be closer to empty. And when the tank is that low the pump screen could be sucking air but also accumalating debris that was floating in tank and partially blocking your fuel pump pickup screen.

If I have less than 1/4 tank of gas my yukon won't start.


I had the same problem. I had a few different mechanics tell me that the fuel pump is starting to go out when it does that. The fuel pump is located in the fuel tank, and the gasoline keeps the pump cool and lubricated. When the fuel tank is less than a 1/4 full, the pump is not submerged anymore, and can have trouble sending gas to the engine. My emergency fix was to get underneath the car on the driver's side and bang on the gas tank about three times. It will start up, and will run great unless you turn your engine off. But eventually you're going to need a new fuel pump. Once I replaced it, the problem went away.
