    Dear Mobileman380- Thanks for the input. I relized its the fuel pump, but whats actually going on inside the tank as I shake the vehicle? I hear the pump energize for 3 seconds before I start and after I turn off. Is there a valve sticking or could there be a problem with the purgeing system? Where can I find a electrical schematic for the fuel pump system? Thanks

Was just driving down the road and it died will not start back up, shows the battyery is dead and the gas gage is not reading . Tryed to jump it off and put gas in it but still a no go. ???????

Maybe a bad fuel pump.After you get the battery charged remove gas cap and listen in tank while another person turns key on you should here a buzzing noise that stops after 2 to 3 seconds.try this a couple of times. If you here nothing it is most likely the pump

I put some 5w-30 oil in my car it ran fine...then once i get to the gas station and put some regular gas in it and it starts to shake and white smoke started to come out the tail pipe the temp gage started...

You have antifreeze leaking into the cylinders....and when the spark ignites the fuel in the cylinder, the antifreeze is in there also giving you the smoke....

What does all this mean?

More than likely, you have a blown head gasket.....or a cracked cylinder head.

Gas gauge doesn't work

The no. 1 cause of the gas gage not reading or reading incorrectly is that the sending unit for the gas gage inside the gas tank is defective, this is esp true on older cars and trucks, In order to replace the gas gage sending unit requires the gas tank be removed.

Fuel gage on 2005 altima is way beyond full. Does

It is either the sending unit in the gas tank or the dashboard gauge, either job poses its own challenges take your pick. If it is the gauge if you were lucky in a couple of weeks it will become unstuck in to pegged out position but that is only if it is a mechanical issue with the needle itself wedged in place.

Gas and Temperature gage sometimes does not work - 2002 dodge neo

Seems like you might have a couple of problems. First the gas gauge, check your fuses to see if they are still good. Then check the wiring as you may have a short or a bad ground. Lastly if everything checks out then you may have faulty sensor in the gas pump housing in the gas tank, and or faulty temperature sending unit located on the motor. As for your your overheating issue you may have a head gasket leak which these little motors are prone to having, or just a general coolant leak. I deduced this because you're constantly having to refill with water. You have a leak somewher, but to narrow it down to your head gasket check your oil to see if it's got coolant in it. It will look like chocolate milk and may even smell like coolant. Also check your tailpipe with the car running in park and up to operating temp, if you see white smoke coming out the tailpipe that white smoke isn't smoke but water vapor, caused by water entering the combustion chamber from the leaking head gasket and exiting the exhaust. Also you may have a faulty fan switch on your radiator. This would cause your engine to heat up drastically in bumper to bumper traffic because when you're driving cool air is rushing through your radiator, and when you slow down and stop so does the air flow, and if your fan doesn't kick in your radiator isn't able to do it's job and cool the coolant. Hope this helps.

Gas gauge not woking properly gas tank only accepts a little gas

a fuel sending unit seems to be the most popular solution. the part is about $40. I think the labor is what's going to kill you.
