2006 chevy equinox,sometimes holds fuel pressure,sometimes not

I'd use a gage and check proper fuel pressure. With intermittent issues, you have to test when problem is ongoing.
Some possibilities, fuel pump--fuel injector leak-- fuel line has a leak.

My fuel gage is giving me a false reading on my peugot partner 1.8L van,how can I fix this problem?

The usual reasons for intermittent fuel readings are that a wire is loose from the sending unit in the tank or on top of the tank, the connection is not making good contact. If you are getting no reading and it was intermittent or "false" reading at different levels of gas in the tank, the sender unit in the tank is broken. It needs to be replaced.

1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Died while driving home

check the fuel pump fuse/relay, could be just bad enough to cause an intermittent start/no start. and check fuel pressure,spark and the crank position sensor.

I have a 2002 Ford Taures and the gas gage goes on empty intermittantly. Then the check engine light goes on. I have flex fuel and don't know how to trouble shoot the problem I can restart the car and most...

i know that if the gas cap is loose then the check engine light will come on. as far as the fuel gauge going up and down the "float" you have in your tank could be getting stuck. This is a pain in the rear to change because you will have to drop the fuel tank and either replace the part connected (best bet) to it or make sure the passage is clear.

I have a peugeot 406, V.reg 1999 model. all the dials are fluctuating up and down and the fuel gage reads empty even when full?? Any idea's??

I don't know this car, but it could be that an intermittent short in the fuel gage doesn't give enough time for the fuel needle to move, but does effect all the other dials intermittently. Or maybe the instrument panel has a ground wire that is intermittent. Good luck.
