Question about 1999 Ford Taurus

1 Answer

I redently got an oil change, then got gas and

I recently got an oil change, then got gas and overfilled the tank slightly and drove a couple of blocks home. The next morning noted the service engine light on...went to Auto Zone. One person said it might be vacuum line, another try came up P140 EGR. I thought I may have caused it by the gas is running fine so far, but I always seem to get ripped off by the auto mechanic so hopefully someone can help. Thanks, Barbara. I did try a new gas cap, but it didn't help.

P0140 is downstream oxygen sensor (Bank 1, Sensor2) not Egr. It is a coincidence that it came on after you filled up. Try erasing the codes and see if it returns. If it does, replace the o2

2001 passat volkwagen oil over fill & When you press the gas it takes off slow then jumps and wants to take off right away HELP PLEASE!~

I am surprised it would even run with that much overfill. Drain the excess oil to the correct level. If excessive blue smoke is present, internal damage has occurred, if not its probably OK.

Fuel fill problem gas pump keeps shuts of when i try to fill

Iown 02 hyundai accent gl 1.6l. Had the problem twice. I used to over fill the tank until I had to spend close to $550.00 USD. The problem is when we overfill the tank. the carbon canister gets clogged and it damages a sensor in the assembly called "DMTL". Thia assy is located under the rear driver side of the car to the left and rear of the fuel tank. Once I replaced the carbon canister, sensor and filter the problem went away. if you let it go for a long time you eventually start smelling gas inside the car after fill ups. Good luck.
