How to fix P0462 code on Nissan Maxima?


Did you ask auto zone they usually tell you what's wrong otherwise go to the dealer. As far as your fuel gage it may be the cause of all your problems as they are part of your fuel pump that's in your gas tank it should be able to be reaches either under your back seat or in your trunk.

I have 1990 Mazda Protege Se. Gas fuel guage is showing empty but about 2-3 gallons gas is in tank. When I fuel it up to full, gas guage showing full again. What's the problem? How to fix?


the extra fuel is "reserve" to get you to a fuel station... this is normal. If you were to run it completely out you will damage your fuel pump, fuel is used to cool the fuel pump. Soo... DON'T run it so low!

How big of gas tank is on it. {gallon wise}. And the gage shows full when you fill it up then after you have about 2-4 gallons left it drops to below the yellow line. Light comes on. Why.

When the fuel light comes on, how many gallons are left in the tank on a 1986 4 RUnner


They all are different, but not much. Maybe a gallon or two. The only way to find out is take a jug of gas with you and run it dry. When the light comes on, mark down the mileage, and when it starts to die, mark down the mileage again, and do the math. Don't run it right out. When it starts to run poorly, or lose power, add your jug of gas right away.

Car gas guage is not working


this is caused by a defective gas gauage sending unit in the gas tank.

I have a 94 chevy s10 and my gas reads empty while i drive.but when i shut off the truck the gauge moves to different readings.


Is......the problem--"the gas gage reads empty when there is fuel in the tank. OR, The gage moves when the key to turned off ?

If it's the first,
You will need to test the gage and through process of elimination, determin if the Sending unit inside the fuel tank has gone Bad.

If its the second ? - Electrical gauges will move when powered down. Normal

Testing the gauge may not be easy - just depends on your ability.
It is a simple 2-wire gauge circuit, when disconnect (usually need the fuel tank) the gage reads in one direction (either full or empty)
then when shorted-the gage reads in oppisite direction.

Of course you must select the correct wires or you may short out the wrong circuits!! Most GM vehicles use a purple wire & black wire.

A quick method I have used to check the in-take part of the gauge is this.
1st. know there is gas - 1/2 tank works best.
2nd driver's door open, key in run position, engine not running.
3rd gently lift up on the door then let if come back down, gently.
just enough to cause the gas to slosh around.
4th - keep an eye on the gas gage, a bad sending unit in the take will show up as a "twitchy" needle.

Of course, if the gage never leaves empty - sloshing won't work.
I have a known good sending unit I can plug into the vehicle and simulate different levels of fuel - if the gas gage works, I know the problem is in the tank.

Let us know.

When empty fuel gage show full, I put 2 gallons of gas and it show 1/2 full


If your lucky, it's the wire harness from the frame to the gas tank. If your not lucky, it's the sending unit in the gas tank and that's expensive.
