If the check engine light is on, there has to be a trouble code in the on board computer. If the light only comes on when you fill your tank, then the problem is intermittent and the mechanic would need to scan the computer while the light is on. This could be the reason they can't find anything wrong. If the light is on when they scan the computer, they must have recovered a trouble code. If there is no trouble code to be found, then the mechanics will need to fall back on their ability to diagnose a problem without the use of electronic crutches. If they cannot, or will not, put forth the effort to solve your problem without the help of the computer codes, then I would suggest you seek the advice of a "real" mechanic. The problem seems to be fuel related, so the first place I would look is the fuel pump with it's integrated fuel filter. Not a cheap repair, especially if it is not the root cause of the problem. You did not say what, if any, tests the mechanics have done. They need to check for sufficient fuel pressure at the injectors. If the fuel pressure is not up to the recommended levels, then go ahead and have the fuel pump and filter assembly replaced.

I had the instrument cluster replaced in my 2000 windstar and now the engine is knocking.Engine light comes on for about three days and then it goes off.What could be wrong with my vehicle?

I don't think your gauge cluster has anything to do with your engine knock. I do, however, think that your engine knock has something to do with your check engine light. Start by checking your oil level. A knock could be something simple, or it could be something serious. Unfortunately, it's almost impossible to diagnose a 'knock' without being able to actually HEAR it first-hand, so I'll just throw you a few bones. If you live in a colder climate (especially this time of year) you might want to ask a certified mechanic what weight oil you should be running. A lack of oil to the top end of the engine could cause a knock. Bad gas could cause a knock (fill tank at a different station than the last one you went to). A timing issue could also cause a knock. If the knock persists or gets worse, take it to a mechanic for a diagnosis immediately. If the simple fixes don't do it, it won't get any better on its own.

I have a problem filling my 2003 Ford focus gas tank. The pump keeps shutting off and I can only fill a little at a time. I had the car checked at STS Auto center in Island Park NY and the mechanic...

I have had the same problem a few times myself, usually just pulling the the pump out alittle stops the problem, its usually from the gas backing up in the line and not enough air coming out of the tank

Chry 300c 06 stalls after filling tank

Tell me when you fill up how far do you go before it stops,,then how far does it go the second time and the 3rd time ,,Do the times get longer each time,, if so then your problem isent a big deal.
The problem you might have is that the return fuel pipe from the engine returning fuel back in to the tank,, and the TANK breather pipe which has to let air in as you cannot take fuel out and not let air back in ,,so it causes a vacuum in the tank... So check the breather before any thing else .. OR dont fill it up any more than the first click of the pumps .
Let me know how you get on Ron

Gas tank very low, just filled with plus gas, now hesitating

The throttle position sensor may be wet. Several auto parts places like autozone or murrays or o'reillys will check this for free and test the computer in your vehicle for the check engine light.

My 1998 Hyundai Accent Check Engine light comes on then off

If your having a check engine light come on you'll need to find out what it's for, you can do this by using a OBD II diagnostics tool to retrieve the trouble codes from your pcm "powertrain control module", without knowing the trouble code stored in your pcm it could take hours of troubleshooting to find out whats wrong with your vehicle, you can buy a OBD II diagnostics tool at a auto parts store, if you don't want to buy one some auto parts stores will do the test on your vehicle at no cost, Thanks for using fixya.

My Truck is stalling out at stop and go situations.

check th fuel filter - does this happen when below 1/4 tank of gas? there is a filter in there too. a clogged filter will be worse at acceleration - if it is at 1/4 tank or less when this occurs - try filling up and see if that helps - when you drop below 1/4 tank you will **** up trash from the bottom of the tank! hope this helps
