It could also simply be a burned out bulb. But, of course you checked that first, right?

There is sending unit in the tank.I would'nt fix it as it may be costly.Here is an easy solution each time you fill the tank zero the odometer.You shold get around 200Km on a full tank.Regardless of the mileage switch to reserve if your engine starts to sputter.You should get an additional 10 miles at reduced speed,which will get to a gas station.With experience you know your range on a full tank.If you choose my recomendation then remove or cover the low fuel light as it could be annoying

1985 Ford Bronco 2 choke plate not closing


The choke butterfly (choke plate as you call it) can only be partially closed when the engine is cold. It is used to create a low pressure under in the throat of the carby which causes excess fuel into the engine when cranking and early running to help warm up and to prevent the carby icing up. After a few minutes the butterfly will be fully open and remain that way while the engine is at operating temp. As to the engine stopping down the road look for another fault -- Like incorrect fuel cap on tank , blocked fuel filter, dirty air filter If the engine starts easily and runs I doubt that the fault will be in the carby.

How many miles do I have left when the gas light starts blinking on a cadillac catera 2000


You have about 3 gallons in the tank, so that menas about 50 miles is safe. Never run this car out of gas, you will damage the electric fuel pump inside the gas tank, low fuel/no fuel overheats the pump because the gasoline cools it while it is running.

Sounds like the fuel pump. Simple check put key in ignition turn to on position Pump should buzz. Another way to check use a rag and hunt down schrater valve on the fuel rail on engine. Wear eye protection put rag around bottom of schrater valve and press down on valve. Fuel should shoot up at you if not your pump is bad.

The fuel gauge didn't go up to full right away after filling. It took almost 20 miles of driving but it finally registered full. Driving with the odometer showing so I can keep an eye on it to see if it...


How low was the tank, prior to filling it up...You most likely have a floating needle on the gauge...It's not uncommon for it to take a few minutes to register full, but 20 miles is a tad long...Could have been air in the system if you got really low on fuel...I'd do as you mentioned and keep an eye on it before I sought further help...tg

Car is VERY low on gas. When I tried to start it


you could boost the car and try to turn it over but you may be too low on gas to get it to the engine (side note gm likes to put the fuel pump in the gas take to keep it cool) running your car on less that 1/4 take its hard on the pump because it over heats and could be burned out

My 2000 Tahoe will not crank unless you have over 1/4 tank of gas, last week it started dying while driving down the road, After 100 miles it died and then got more frequent and now dies after a mile. It...


Try replacing the fuel filter first and the primary fuel filter screen in the fuel pump may be dirty also. As for the the one in the gas tank which is a part of the fuel pump, your just going to have to keep the gas tank half full and add some fuel injector cleaner to the gas tank for the next feet fill ups. As for the fuel filter along the frame rail on the drivers side, they have a life of 30,000 miles or 1 year and needs to be replaced within those recommended intervals. Good luck and hope this helps, Note: the gas is what keeps the fuel pump cool, so low fuel in the gad tank will have the fuel pump run hotter causing it to fail prematurely
