Fuel tank shield on 2002 axiom is rusted out. Dealer said no parts available. Does the tank shield hold up the fuel tank or just add protection for off road driving?

The shield does not hold the tank in the car, if you take a good look you will see 2 straps that hold the tank in the car the shield is there to help protect the tank from rocks and things you might run over, they rust out because dirt and water gets on top of the shield between the tank and the shield and it can't get out, we remove the shields sometimes because if the car is not used off road much there is a lot higher chance of the tank rusting and developing a leak because of all the dirt and water that is trapped between the shield and tank then there is of the driver damaging the tank by driving over something.

How to get water out of a gas tank

If it is allot of water you will need to pull the tank, if the water is muddy you will need to pull the tank. If it is just a little water you can pump it out by using the in tank electric fuel pump by jumping the fuel pump relay and powering up the pump all the time. If the water has been in the tank very long you may have much more serious problems with parts like injectors being ruined from water deposits and rust. In some cases you can absorb the water by adding a pint of denatured alcohol to the tank, it is available from any hardware store.

Fuel appears to be leaking from the top of the tank

The fuel tank will have to be removed for further inspection.I`m sure you will be able to see the problem when the tank is removed.Could be a seal or a bad fuel line that is rusted.If you are not able to do this on your own take it to a repair shop.Hope this helps and good luck.

What is an average milage of 2002 Isuzu Axiom, because it seems like I'm fill up my tank every two days.

a smple tune up can help you gas mileage. new spark plugs, air filter, fuel filter, right tire pressure, and if you want to go an extra step get a can of carb cleaner, take off your throttle body, and clean it out. i did this to my wifes axiom, its simple and doesnt take much time.

Check engine lite on. car reader indicator ( PO463 fuel level senor circuit high input). Feuel gauge do not work proper, give a false reading with a full tank.

my wifes truck has same problem, better off changing the whole fuel pump. the fuel level sensor is on the casing for the fuel pump. mine as well replace pump since you have to drop the tank anyway. before you order one, check on the drive side door jam to see what month you axiom was built. this is an important factor in ordering your fuel pump. sounds stupid i know but trust me. alot of parts for the axiom depend on the month.

Where the fuel filter located on a 2002 Ford explorer

your fuel filter is well hid !! the fuel tank is on the passengers side of your explorer on the fuel filer is located on the front top of your fuel tank ! access to the filter is obtained by removing the heat shield at the front of the fuel tank, there are two bolts retaining the shield to the right frame rail and two bolts retaining the shield to the cross member. once the shield is removed you will see the filter,Be careful removing the fuel lines, the lines have locking clips that DO NOT remove from the lines !! and can be damage if you are not careful (which will result in complete line replacement if the ends are broken. the line clips are released by disengaging the top of the clip then folding the the edge over towards the side its attached to next push both side's in (towards center on top edge) then push clip down part way while pulling line loose .Good luck Thanks for using fix ya

2006 Chevy Trailblazer fuel gauge stays on empty

Could be a
1. Fuse - not likely, I'd expect other instrument panel problems.
2. Broken wire from fuel gauge
3. Bad fuel sender in fuel tank. Normally requires dropping the tank.

Vehicle is not that old, would think it is still under warranty?

Fuel gauge jumps around

Depending on the severity of the problem, Sea Foam fuel additive can fix this (or at least lessen the crazy jumping around). It's available at NAPA. It worked on my Jimmy. However, in my case gauge started jumping around with less than 1/4 tank (worked fine when full).
