If that car was mine,I'd take it to Ford and pay their diagnostic fee.
Before you do that, unhook the battery cable for a half hour and then reconnect and let it idle for a few minutes. If it acts okay,drive it TOWARD the Ford dealer and check it out.
Your car is at the age that it needs Coil-over-plugs and spark plugs,along with a fuel filter. The coils-over plugs can cause BAD things to happen to the PCM(by electrical interference) which controls a LOT of functions. don-ohio (:^)
It sounds like the alternator is going bad. I reccommend pulling the alternator and having it checked out, most auto stores do this as a free service. There could also be another problem on the rpm thing but I would start with alternator and inspect all other pulleys that the belt rides with. Good luck.
GMC sent me a letter saying that gas guage not working has been a problem and they will fix and pay half. Also my mechanic says that it is common to get a check engine lite when you add gas to tank, especially when you fill it. Sometimes I will take off gas cap and let air out then replace cap and the check engine lite will go off. (usually). Nothing to worry about.
Does it stick at about half full? I would fill up, the gauge would show full then after 60-70 mile when gauge should show less than half to a 1/4 tank the gauge still showed 1/2 tank so I'd go ahead and fill it up. Finally, I watched my mileage and when my yellow low on gas light came on I filled it half full. After a couple of weeks I filled it up and the gauge has worked every since.
the oil sensors tell you lots of things so yes it could be because you're burning up the oil. i would try putting in a bottle of Lucas it is thick and it should help you burn less oil. it is a full quart so don't over fill.
The check engine light will not go away until the problem is fixed. Good thing is Nissan just issued a recall for this part so go to a dealership and get it replaced at no cost to you. I know your problem because I have replaced mine three times on my 2006 Frontier.
The next thing for you to try is the vent tube coming out of the gas tank fill spout,also get the codes read because many other things can put the light on and reading the codes will point you closer to your problem.
The fuel level sensor is bad. The tank will have to be taken down to replace the level sensor. There is little fingers on the resistor that wear down and loose contact causing the gage to read incorrectly.
