I would just remember that 5=0 and probably 20=15, etc. It would be cheaper to keep this mental note than to pay for this to be repaired or replaced.

How many gallon gas do the gas tank hold?


Fill it with the gas can and then go to a gas station. Your gas can can't be much bigger than 5 gallons, there's very few that are larger because they get heavy. Your gas tank is vastly more than 5 gallons, probably 15 or more in an Envoy.

Bronco II fuel injector back fires and rpm go down then back up?


You may have a failing fuel pump, the symptoms are that of low fuel pressure. The fuel pump is located inside the gas tank, the gas tank must be removed to access the pump for renewal. Remember to replace the filter and be careful not to create sparks and blow yourself up, seen it happen first hand.

The car ran out of gas and I had to put 5 gallons in it to get it start yesterday then today it has between emety and and quarter tank and would not fire... I can hear the pump run and so I put 3 more...


WHEN YOU RUN OUT OF GAS IT WILL CAUSE FUEL PUMP DAMAGE CAUSING IT TO OVERHEAT.CHECK FUEL PRESSURE IT SHOULD BE 41 - 47 PSI. IF NOT REPLACE FUEL FILTER.IF FUEL PRESSURE STILL LOW OR 0 . FUEL PUMP BAD.

Almost ran out of gas. put 5 gallons in tank.


worst thing for fuel pumps is to run dry. The pressure will need to be confirmed. If none ,you overheated the pump and it will need to be replaces.

My chevy uplander 2007 ran out of gas. I have


Since the Uplanders have the long (front to back) skinny gas tank, with the outlet to the rear; if you run out of gas with the front/nose inclined lower than the rear, then it can take upwards of 5 to 8 gallons to get it started again. It was written up in a GM TSB. Two gallons won't start it. When the gage reads less than 1/2, it's not a good idea to park with the front lower than the rear...unless you carry a full 5 gal. refill. Thank you GM engineering.

Engine ligh is on, Overdrive light blinks on


check if you use e-mix fuel
if that is the case , put a bottle of methylated sprirts in the fuel tank to mix with the water from the e-mix fuel and then after running the fuel out, refill with normal fuel and a quality injector cleaner

Stall upon running out of gas but won't start up again with gas


Remove the air cleaner and pour about a quarter cup of gasoline into the carburetor or throttle body. Do not stand near the engine when cranking it -- fire/small explosion hazard.
