Question about 2000 Oldsmobile Silhouette

1 Answer

Electrical I Have a few problems and would like to know where to begin. At first the fuel gauge would go all over the place. I assumed it was the sensor in the tank. Then a few weeks later, a couple of dash lights(back/night lights) quit working and now the wipers work only occasionally. Is all related or just coincendence? its a 2000 olds silhouette 2WD with 80K on it. And i forgot the traction doesn't work either.

The only thing the items have in common, the G200 ground. I would check the ground attachment to the body, should be located on the driver side under the kick panel trim around the door jam area.
Take a look and let me know.

Smelling like gas getting to the engine isn't a proper testing procedure. Hooking up a fuel pressure gauge and testing the actual pressure is . You may have a little fuel but not enough . should have 30 . 40 , 50 psi don't know ,you don't say what year or model dodge. Plus doing electrical checks of fuel pump circuit ,voltage drop testing.

Hooking up a scan tool an viewing engine data .should also be done .Guessing is not how to do auto repair ,testing is !

99 f150 6cyl- the problem started with the pickup cutting out when I would try to give it gas and speed up. I changed the fuel filter but that didn't help, I changed the spark plugs and that...

Rather then guessing as to what the problem is learn to test ! Check the electrical circuit , hook up a fuel pressure gauge , use a spark tester to see if it has spark . Do you like buying parts you don't need ? Other wise your better off having a qualified repair shop check it out .

My ford focus starts but then cuts out after a few seconds.. what could this be?

Assuming all vacuum and electrical connections are ok,replace the fuel filter. If already done, check for proper fuel pump operation. This is done by connecting a fuel pressure gauge to a fitting on the fuel rail.

Fuel gage not working. Only a smsll light seen. Does the fuel pump need changing?

As long as the car is running fine it's safe to say the fuel pump does not need to be replaced. However the fuel tank sending unit may need to be replaced assuming the fuel gauge itself isn't at fault. First check your owners manual if available for your fuse block info and check fuses then I'd look into the sending unit. Let me know if you need help with that

How hard is it to replace a fuel pump on a 2000 Daewoo Nubira and do you have to drop the tank?

Fuel Gauge reads empty, but tank IS full

the float in your gas tank seems to have water in it....water is heavier than gas, that's why gas floats on top of water....try putting something like HEAT in it to dry up the water in your tank....
