There are a few things that could be causing this problem. Wiring could be pinched, instrument cluster could be going bad or even a ground wire that is corroded.

I recently changed the front brakes and gas mileage has reduced and there is a humming noise when I only turn to the right. Any thoughts on if these two issues might be related.

Humming noise is the left wheel bearing. Gas mileage could be from the brakes if they are dragging. Drive it , then put you hand on the wheels, be care they could be really hot. You should be able to touch the wheels and keep it them there for a few seconds. If really hot, you can't touch them for even a second. Check calipers and brake hoses.

My 2001 ford expedition won't keep runing when it's cold I have to keep my foot on the gas or it dies until the engine warms up. What is going on?

Your vehicle needs a signal from a Temperature sensor to activate the "Cold start routine". The cold start routine is a modern day version of a choke used in the old days. This process will make the engine speed up by enriching the fuel mix and resetting the engine timing.

The problem is that your engine is stuck in the normal "Lean" run position for better mileage and lower emissions. There can be 2 temperature sensors in each vehicle with only one dedicated to operating the engine controls. The other sensor would operate the dash gauge or light.

When the Temperature sensor is replaced, the system should work again. If it does not respond, there could be a connector problem in the PCM unit, but it is less likely.

The onboard diagnostics would generally monitor the PCM, but the Temperature sensor is usually an unmonitored device.

Please rate my info.

After getting gasoline, it increases wrong mileage with camry 2003

One tank of gas is not enough to compare mileage. Or are you saying the computer's readout of mpg estimate is showing less? Try a tank or two of premium and see if that helps. Keep track of gas mileage. Driving techniques have a lot to do with gas mileage, as does long trips vs. short trips, highway cruising vs. city driving. For best mileage, do regular maintenance and keep the car in top running condition-good spark plugs and clean filters and clean oil ! Attend to minor problems before they escalate.
If you want to check actual miles per gallon, start with a full tank. Write the odometer reading down, and go. Everytime you put gas in, write down the amount. When you are close to 1,000 miles from the time you started, go fill the tank and include that amount of gas to your previous list. Now add up all the gas used and divide it into the miles to get miles per gallon. (976 miles/31.8 gallons = 30.69 mpg ) . Only one tank will skew your numbers, might be off cause the tank was filled more to the top than the previous fill-up. About a thousand miles of driving will give you a very accurate figure of miles per gallon for your car.

Can a thremastat stuck open have low engine temp and bad gas milage

If the thermostat is stuck open it would eventually get hot after a while. It's like some people think you can remove the thermostat to keep the engine from getting hot so in theory it could for a little while, however it would eventually overheat. As for the gas mileage being bad yes if it was stuck open and was not warming up fast enough the computer would take longer to go into closed loop, meaning the engine temperature takes to long to heat up so it burns rich until it does warm up enough, however it would be a minor change of mileage say 2 to 3 miles to the gallon. Hope this helps.

Car shakes at stop signs, very poor gas mileage, and sputters whe

Try having your fuel injector cleaned, you can start with running fuel injector cleaner though your gas tank and if that does not help then you have to get it cleaned out professionally or even worst have the injector's replaced if they are bad.
The other thing that will give it bad fuel would be a bad air intake temperature sensor go bad, as for the ruff idle that is common to a dirty or stuck EGR valve.
Good luck and keep me posted, by the way, what kind of Garage did you take it too? And are there and DTC codes from the ECM?

Low temp.

Consequences are poorer fuel mileage and possible Check Engine Light. I'd start by replacing the thermostat, and flushing the coolant system.

What's probably happening is the thermostat is stuck open, allowing coolant to freely flow through the engine. This lowers the internal temperatures and keeps the combustion process from fully completing (causing worse gas mileage). Start with that and see how it does.
