Town and Country Van running out of gas and guage says half a tank what could be the problem?


If your fuel gauge is showing you in accurate readings this is normal to all vehicles that are not used to fill-up gas full regularly but sometimes the cause of the inacuracy is due to faulty float valve in the gas tank you need to replace it

94 camry won't start after running out of gas?


Fuel injected vehicles will need to be primed when they run out of gas. Your going to have to turn the key on then off at least twenty times leaving it on for five seconds. You may need a half to full tank of gas to get the pump to prime. Another way is to get some carb cleaner, and while an assistant is cranking the vehicle, spray one second then quit for a second then repeat and get the car to start that way and just keep it up until it runs rougher or smoothens out, and let it idle for at least a minute to purge the air out of the system. The key is easier, unless you can figure the relay and bypass the relay to run the pump for at least 30 seconds. That should get it running again.

Couple of days ago car started choking like I was running out of gas my gas guage could be broken but can someone tell me where the carburator ? is so that I can put gas in it.


Your 95 Blazer does not have a carburetor (correct spelling too) It is fuel injected so injectors are used for each cylinder instead of a carburetor. If you run out of fuel and your vehicle is facing uphill when that happens you should have some fuel in the tank left. When leveling at a level position the vehicle will start again. You see the fuel pump is in the fuel tank and fuel is needed at all times to prime when starting. If on a grade the fuel goes to one end if only a gallon or two is left and the pump will **** air only causing a stalling problem I added all this in just so you remember this incase it ever happens to you

Fuel guage reads half way and the truck runs out of gas


The float that helps detect fuel level is most likely broken. You or a mechanic will have to remove the fuel pump from the gas tank and check and possibly replace the float. Merry Christmas.

2002 buick rendezvous


My gas guage went from Empty to Full on its own and I never knew how much gas was in my vehicle. I was driving the other day and it stalled. Pulled into a parking lot let it sit a bit and it started right back up and I was able to drive again. Went to nearest gas station to put gas in. I put in $10 and I drove 3.4 miles and well it died on me again. I pushed the vehicle into my garage. I called around to see what could be wrong and I was told numerous things. I finally went under the vehicle where there is this clearish/white box under the Driverside area and I noticed it was corroded and dirty. I went in the house got a spray bottle with HOT WATER and sprayed it. I noticed that I had 3 prongs broke off. So I went to a local dealership for GM/Buick and I got the pins I needed to fix the problem and I went home fixed the broken pins and well now my vehicle works great and the vehicle runs great and gas guage problem was fixed as well. So for all of you that think you might have a fuel problem, fuel pump problem or gas guage problem check into the wire harness box under your vehicle and you will be able to fix it for Pennies instead of paying the $750 or more for something you cna fix at home. I love my Rendezvous and I would buy another one again.
