I turn the key to the on position and my test light lights up in the plug wires is this normal. Can you help me. Try starting and does not start just turns over

Your test light(s) on the spark plug wires indicate that you're getting spark, but may not be getting fuel. The fact that the engine turns over indicates that your battery is charged, and the ignition switch and starter motor/solenoid are good.
When you turn the key to the "ON" position, listen for the faint whirring sound of the fuel pump operating (inside the fuel tank) - or have a helper listen by pressing their head down to the back seat near the fuel tank/fuel pump.
If no whirring sound comes from the fuel pump motor, then the fuel pump has failed.
Other things to check: if the fuel pump is working, check fuel rail pressure (fuel pressure gauge), and operation of fuel injectors (noid lights). Also, vehicle might be out of gas, due to a fuel line/fuel tank leak.

Two separate issues possibly. When changing the bearing the wheel speed sensor may have been damaged or misplaced. The fuel tank indicator could be a failing sender in the tank of caused by a low battery charge.

When tank is below 1/2 full the car is hard to start and when driving it seems to lose power. My check engine light does not come on.

the problem maybe a problem with fuel pickup at 1/2 tank, if the line has blockage, the filter is clocked up, the leveling or device that keeps track of fuel level is defective, there issue with the floater, the part that suppose to float has or full of fuel and when it gets to 1/2 tank, the floater full of fuel and sinks like your out of gas.
i think most likely clogged fuel filter in the fuel tank if your car has this type of system.
if not the fuel filter most of the time its near intake of the injectors, underneath the drivers seat under the car.
or by the inlet and outlet of the fuel tank.

Toyota Tacoma fuel problem

Check the following:
- Listen to the fuel pump noise under the fuel tank.
- Starter signal.
- EFI relay, under the hood fuse and relay box.
- Fuel pump operation and pressure.
- Regulating valve.
- Circuit Opening Relay (COR) under the dash.
- Check for open in harness and connector between circuit opening relay and fuel pump, and fuel pump and body ground


Hope that works. Thank you for visiting Fixya.

Low gas indicator light does not come on when guage is on E

The fuel pump is kept cool by the fuel in the tank. It is rare for a Toyota fuel pump to fail but if your running it that low on gas your not helping last any longer. I would suggest not letting your tank get below a quarter tank. That way you will never have to worry about whether or not the light will come on. Typical there would be about a gallon or less of fuel in the tank before the light would come on. If it did come on you would have about 20 miles r so of fuel left in the tank.

I’m happy to assist further over the phone at

2000 suburu lagacy sedan, when fuel gets below around 1/2 tank the fuel gauge drops down to empty and fuel light comes on also the service engine light comes on. After filling tank back up about the second...

It is the fuel level gauge mounted on the sending unit. Some manufacturers just started to release this part, instead of making you buy the entire unit. They are still expensive, but not as much as a $400.00 dollar part. Shop rate on dropping the tank is 2 hours. If yours can be accessed from under the back seat then the rate is one hour.

Does this malibu have an low fuel light to let one know its on empty.

Yes it does have a low fuel indicator light as standard equipment. I would like to caution you on running the car with the fuel level below 1/8 tank, it overheats the tiny electric fuel pump inside the fuel tank and greatly shortens it life span, it is a VERY expensive repair.
