There are 2 sensors 1 on each side of the tank sounds like 1 has gone down there is a way to check the sensor readings by using the instrument pack self test I think you hold the button on the indicator switch and turn the ignition on then keep pressing until you find fuel readings

It sounds like a change over valve is faulty. U have 2 check over valves 1 on each side of rear wheel wells. Also a change over valve that switches 1 tank to other. I recomend replacing all 3 valves for peace of mind,because when 1 goes the others follow. Hope this is helpful!

SOURCE: how do I remove coin stuck in my jaguar xtype cd

The only safe way to remove the coins is to remove the cd player from the dash and then gently shake the coins out. That said, you can take the car to any audio shop and have them do it for you or if you are so inclined you can do it yourself. Just be sure to disconnect the battery and also be sure that you have the correct code for the anti-theft mechanism.

Here is a link that will give you the flavor of all of the steps involved if you should choose to do this yourself http://gopaultech.com/blog/2007/02/removing-honda-odyssey-cd-player/comment-page-2/

SOURCE: 2005 jaguar xtype how do i adjust headlights

If I am understanding your post, I believe you do have a levelling
system and it should be near your light switch on the dash. It is
the type of switch that you depress first, it then springs out and
you turn the small knob (just like your instrument panel lights
adjuster next to it.) What you do not have perhaps, if your car is
not fitted with HIDs (high intensity headlamps), is the automatic
levelling system which is a legal requirement when HIDs are fitted
due to the high power of the lights....

if you don't have a self-levelling system then you'll have a manual
system, operated by a knob under the light switch so that you can
adjust to compensate for a heavy load in the rear of the car.

I have a 1999 Mitsubishi montero and i bought it used the gas gage will not go to full when i fill it up and when it dose move it only gose to quarter tank mark and rarely. Gose to half tank mark


Sounds like a bad float or weak gauge.you can always use the miles trip to predict how much fuel you have left in cases like these the trip can be your best friend.have someone experienced change the float in the tank then if not float change gauge but like i said someone that knows what they are doing if not they can mess the entire dash up and short alot more than you would think out so try float or gauge if it has over 150k miles its probably the float.

Fuel gage aint working


all parts may be new but if the fuel gauge sender float has been bent when being installed into tank this will give false readings - if the float has been bent up during installation then it is likely that it will only read fro three quarters of a tank up as the float can not get any lower due to being bent, I recommend that a new pump/float is installed very carefully.

05 grd caravan fuel gauge showed quarter tank and


The float sending unit is messed up and don't know now much gas is in the tank. The float may be stuck in a higher position showing more gas, in reality the gas level is way below. Try using a rubber mallet and tap on the gas tank near the fuel pump. It may help free up the float.

Gas gage isnt right it keeps floating


The Sorento gs tank is under the floor in the back seat. Flip the seat bottom's forward and pull open the Velcro to access the top of the tank. The fuel pump and sender may be accessible from the top, but you might be unlucky and have t remove the tank.
