It's simply a float attached to the sending unit in the fuel tank. Depending on the make it will have several different forms, but there will be no mistaking it. If your gauge always shows the tank on empty, check the connections going to your fuel tank first before attempting removal of the sending unit. Please take caution if you do need to pull the sending unit and run all the petrol from your car until it dies. Hope this helps!

2008 Chevy Kodiak c4500 duramax desiel code reader (Innova 3100 Can OBD2) shows P0102, what does it mean


P0102 Chevrolet - Mass or Volume Air Flow Circuit Low Input

Read more: http://engine-codes.com/p0102_chevrolet.html#ixzz38p5k1ZD8

Possible causes - Faulty mass air flow sensor
- Intake air leaks
- Dirty mass air flow sensor
- Dirty mass air filter
- Mass air flow sensor harness is open or shorted
- Mass air flow sensor circuit poor electrical connection

Before replacing the mass air flow sensor, try replacing the air filter and cleaning the air flow sensor with low compress air or mass air flow sensor cleaner. Reset code and drive vehicle. If the code comes back, it may be necessary to replaced the mass air flow sensor.

What do Fault codes P0068 mean?


P0068 means that the Throttle Position Sensor doesn't agree with the Manifold Absolute Pressure Sensor; the readings it gets from the two sensors don't make sense with each other. If someone has replaced one of those two sensors, they may have put the wrong one in. Otherwise, one of those two sensors is bad... in which case your car should have given you a second error code telling which of those sensors it thinks is bad.

Myopelmariva has a car symbol with the spanner across and it cuts off at 3000 rpm


which engine, most cars have many engines choices.
if the ECU/PCM sets the CAM sensor (CMP) that can be 2 things
loose cam belt, or loose chain, some have belt some have chain.
if the belt is loose, the cam bounces, and the CMP sees that and gets confused, or the sensor is bad. (or just dirty clean it)
RPM limit can be stuck in limphome mode, or lean fuel
or too rich misfire, i see you mech is not so good, here state side any ASE mech would find it fast. (scan tool PIDS)


so enigne which is it. never post engine question to any one, unless you can state the engine, name and number.
let me give and example.
Petrol
  • 1.4 TWINPORT, with 90 PS (66 kW; 89 hp) (from 2005)
  • 1.6 (8v), with 85 PS (63 kW; 84 hp)
  • 1.6 (16v), with 100 PS (74 kW; 99 hp)
  • 1.8, with 125 PS (92 kW; 123 hp)
Both 1.4 and 1.8 are available as flexfuel in Brazil.
Diesel
  • 1.7 CDTI, with 100 PS (74 kW; 99 hp)
Petrol
  • 1.4 TWINPORT, with 90 PS (66 kW; 89 hp)
  • 1.6 TWINPORT 105 PS (77 kW; 104 hp)
  • 1.8, with 125 PS (92 kW; 123 hp)
  • 1.6 Turbo, with 180 PS (132 kW; 178 hp) (OPC/VXR model only)
Diesel
  • 1.3 CDTI, with 75 PS (55 kW; 74 hp)
  • 1.7 CDTI, with 100 PS (74 kW; 99 hp)
more....

it is near impossible to fix any engine not know which one it is.
and 10x on line. we are blind here, but not your mech.
i looks and goes, ahh, z16XSE or...

but your mech, fire him, find a real one and one that has a scan tool., knows how to read live data and how to check the belt for loose or slipped. or just a dirty cmp.
btw those errors mean the CMP is reading wrong. only why is in question, it is reading wrong. for sure.
the CMP can trip for 1 pulse in 10 bad. its a very sensitive test.
with VTT engines more parts to mess cam locations or jog.
variable valve timing, that.

post back your engine. on our cars the VIN tells this tale.
on non usa cars the fire wall chassis tag has engine type clearly stated. read it.

On my 2001 GMC jimmy sls,when the fuel guage gets near half full it drops to empty and lately when really full it reads empty until a few gallons are gone. What is the problem and how do I fix it?


you probably have a bad fuel level sensor in the fuel tank.you will have to remove the fuel tank to replace the sensor.the contacts on the sensor will break causing the fuel gauge to be inacurate.you can buy the sensor without having to buy the whole fuel pump assembly.

It acts like it is loading up when you give it the gas, but not all the time. The check engine light is on and the test for it i was told that it had to do with the catalytic converter.


try unpluging then repluging in your TPS (throttle position sensor) its located on the end of your intake. it reads the position of your throttle and works with your ECM, and the O2 sensors to control your air/fuel mixture. if its running rich and not burning off all the gas it would also throw off your O2 sensor that is attached to the front of your catalytic converter. sometimes these sensors get gummed up and they send inacurate information to the ECM.

2002 Ranger 4L v6 engine light stays on. Quick trouble shoot showed both banks were lean. What might be the cause?


A dirty Mass Air Flow Sensor (MAF) will cause and lean condition and also and dirty IAT will give you a lean condition. If you are using a oil charged air filter like K&N, droplet of oil will make there way to the MAF sensore and IAT causing them to give the wrong readings. You can buy a can of MAF sensor cleaner and clean both sensors. Make sure it's a MAF cleaner and follow the instructions. Good luck and hope this helps. Keep me posted, there are other reasons but this is the most common.

Starting problems golf mk4 1.6 petrol


There is a part between the air intake manifold and the air box on your engine, it's usually black on a golf, will look like a 15cm tube around 80-90mm in diameter with a plugged wire leading into it, this is your MAF sensor or MASS AIR FLOW sensor and if dirty / faulty can cause an incorrect temp reading from the air intake and cause rough engine starting, this is a very common problem on mk4 golfs... the part is apparently cleanable, with isoprop alcohol, or I assume white spirit. the actual sensor needs to be removed from its housing for cleaning, and as always treat carefully... the part replacement, depending on where you go can be around $50 - $100 used or even new.... part number off the existing one on your car, try ebay as you can do well for price :) could be fouled spark plugs from rich fuel mix on bad airtemp sensor, could be a million things but the MAF sensor is one of the golden oldies I'd be checking first :) Goodluck, Chas
