If the compression is down then you may need a valve job or a rebuilt engine. Put a tablespoon of oil in each cylinder and check the compression again. If it comes up then you need a valve job. If it doesnt change then your piston rings and seals are bad and will need a rebuild. If the valve seats are destroyed then chances are you need a valve job.

Renault laguna computer says warning fuel level low i have put petrol in it still says the same the petrol lights on and the gauge is showing quarter full

Hi Singo the light and gauge are seperate systems that's why they are reading wrong. It's most likely the sensor in the tank of worst case an ECU fault. You will need someone to look at it for you because Renault electrical systems are very temperament and a wrong move could cause other more serious problems. Regards Jim...

How do I remove the electric petrol fuel pump from the tank of my 95 Terrano 2 SLX

how does it work with the tank cap off, the pump may not be the problem if it works great with a full tank the pressure of the fuel is stronger to drop. the lower the fuel creates a vacuum in the tank as it goes down, the pump will keep working but as there is no air in the tank it will not feed. some vents are in the fuel cap and there is a regulated one on the tank itself. this can get blocked and limit the fuel getting to the engine.

1989 range rover not pumping petrol 3,9 runs on gas but will not pump petrol

Hi there, did you run the petrol low or out, the fuel pump will keep pumping while the key is on and if your running on gas them it's still running, I would say the fuel pump has failed due to no lubrication from fuel, be sure to keep your petrol tank at least at 1/4 of tank full

Does the fuel tank in a 2004 Mitsubishi Diamante needs to be full in order for the gauge to work?

Hi Marglitt, The gauge should work with any amount of fuel and indicate how much is in the tank. What does happen on modern cars, is that the gauge will fail to move if a small amount of fuel is filled into the tank. This is a measure taken as most petrol driven vehicles have the pumps immersed in fuel, which helps cool the pump and prolongs the life of the unit.The reserve light may remain on if the fuel level has not risen above the operational level of the same warning light. Regards Johngee10

Left petrol tank stays full, not feeding/emptying - BMW X5 4.6is

inside the tank there are 2 or 3 hoses that transfers the fuel to where the fuel pump is. check for leaky hoses.

I have a Kia Rio 2003 Manual Sedan and have extremely strong petrol fumes coming into the car and when u switch the car off after a trip,we cannot see any leaks under the petrol tank.

turn key on and let fuel system presure build up thats the best time to check for leaks also maybe consider if problem not found quickly have checked out at a shop as fuel leaks turn in to bigger problems i.e.(car fires)

I would start checking the wiring, the tank harness connecter is under the back seat. you may have to drop the fuel tank to get access to the top of the sending unit
