First check to see if earth on tank sender unit is OK. If unit is on top of tank, remove and see if float is OK.

SOURCE: Faulty petrol gauge

I had same problem with petrol gauge bouncing around all over the place, full tank, half a tank and nearly empty in the space of 10 miles.

I knew that if I filled the tank I would get approx 200 miles for half a tank so I did that for a while and just kept topping up. Audi testing it and the fuel sensors in the tank had to be replaced. I'm afraid its the only permanent solution!

SOURCE: nissan skyline 1988 .Noticed a petrol smell in and

A lot of Nissan models have an inspection cover in the trunk that you can remove to get at the fuel pump in the gas tank. If not there, perhaps under rear seat, but should be in trunk. Locate it, remove it and have a look for possibility of broken or cracked piece of fuel line hose attached to pump, or look around for other source of your leak. Careful with trouble light near fumes!! Use a good flashlight if you can. Be sure to relieve system pressure before doing anything on fuel lines if that's the problem.

SOURCE: run out of petrol put more in went to start car

Are you sure you ran out of petrol? It might be that the petrol pump or something else had died. The only way to tell is to undo the fuel line from the carb and turn it over, check if it pumps fuel (have someone help you with this.) You might also find that you've got a blockage in your fuel filter, caused maybe by **** left floating at the top of the tank that was sucked in when you ran out of petrol. Check the filter first and see if it's OK, then check if fuel is flowing. Also, on a 97 Alfa, I'd imagine it was fuel injected though I could be wrong. If it is then you'll want to be more careful wit the fuel line.

On some cars you can unlock the door twice and this will release the petrol cap - otherwise you could check for a loose conection somewhere in the fuse box.

The petrol gage is not working how do I fix that it is a Chevrolet captiva ltz 4x4 2008 model


Unfortunately, it's usually the sending unit that's gone bad, it's inside the gas tank.
Very few vehicles have an opening in the floor directly above the gas tank to pull the sending unit and pump. Usually you have to jack up the vehicle and drop the gas (petrol) tank.
The replacement part is cheap and a mechanic should be able to do the repair for a decent price. They have to remove most of the petrol before removing the tank so I would get the tank close to empty before bringing it in. (I know, without a gage it's hard to guess)

Hi all, Nissan Primera, P12, 2002 is over revving, especially when idling. Sprayed the MAF sensor and changed the air filter but that didn't make any difference. It also uses lots of petrol sinc


Sounds like a vacuum leak or a bad intake manifold gasket. Take engine cleaner and spray the gasket where the intake manifold bolts onto the motor while running. If there is any change in the idle, your gasket needs to be replaced. Spray all vacuum hoses too. This is the best and cheapest way to test. Let me know how you do please

In my toyota corolla 2003 of 50 litres petrol capacity in the fuel guage thre are totally 17 lines including 4 thick lines. There are no lines in between E and 1st thick line. Similarly there are no lines...


The fuel level sensor in the tank is not linear, meaning it doesn't have the same equally spaced indication between E and F . The shape of the tank has a lot to do with the reading also. The needle will move more rapidly when the tank is below 1/2 full. When the low fuel light comes on there should be almost 3 gallons left in the tank 2 1/2 which are usable.

I mistakingly put some diesel in my petrol swift


You don't say how much diesel you put in or how much petrol was in tank in the first place. If the amount of diesel is less than 5 % of the total then you may try filling tank with petrol and keep topping up to dilute the diesel. The best fix would be to drain fuel tank completly and refill with petrol. If tank has a drainplug , this will be easy but if no drain plug you will have to remove tank from vehicle to empty it.
