Sounds like you may have gotten a bit of water in the fuel. On the carburetored model, if you switched the petcock to "Reserve" setting, you're drawing right off the bottom of the tank where the water would be. I'm not sure about the injected models. What I'd do is go buy a can of "Sea Foam" fuel additive and mix that with the fuel. I think I'd drain the tank first.

Good Luck

P1319 on extremely low tank


p1319 Land Rover:Misfire with Low/Empty FuelDrive cycle C:Signal out of range - above maximum



p2097

- Exhaust leak near O2 sensor

- Faulty O2 sensor

- Fuel contamination





based on these two codes it sounds like you have crap in your gas tank, especially water. Get two bottles of dry gas WITH fuelnjector cleaner. Add both bottles at the same time then fill the tank with PREMIUM ( not regular ) gas. MAKE SURE it is a good quality gas at a SUNOCO, MOBIL, etc station; not elcheapo.



If this doesn\'t clear it take it to a dealer.

1999 MERCURY VILLAGER BOGS WHEN GOING UP HILL WHEN ONLY 1/8TH TANK OF GAS FILLE IT UP AND THEN STILL BOGGED FOR ABOUT A MILE THEN QUIT BOGGING WHAT CAUSED THIS


when a tank is empty there is no fuel for the pump and the system runs low on fuel pressure Going up hill the fuel runs away from the pick up line and the pump sucks air
After filling it takes a while to empty the air out of the system to allow full pressure again. It is an extremely costly practice to run so low on fuel as it may lead to a pump replacement

Digital gas gauge reading incorrectly and inverted


sounds like a faulty sender unit or your just realy low on fuel before you spend any money on repairs try filling the tank up with fuel as if its been low for a long time the sender unit in the tank may be sticking the fuel will lube it and may start working again

Can't fill gas tank in 2002 Hyundai Accent


There isn't a low cost solution for this problem. The cause of the fill up problem is that the vapor canister is damaged and would cost about $800 to replace. When you are filling with gas, the fumes from the empty tank are expelled through the vapor canister which is designed to capture the hydro carbon molecules to prevent air pollution. The design of the Accent fuel system allowed gas to get into the canister when the fuel tank was over filled which damaged the system. The alternative is to just take your time filling the gas tank. The pump which will sense the back pressure from the slow venting will shut off repeatedly but with patience you can fill the tank. Just wait about 5 seconds each time after the pump turns off before starting to fill again.

Fuel light came on,tank nearly empty,started bike up next morning and idles ok but badly misfires when try to accelerate,filled tank up with mobil 98 octane which i have used before and it still misfires...


Chances are condensation has collected in the carb float bowl. Drain the carb. Yes, keep the tank filled. This will lessen condensation. You may want to install a new spark plug as well.

While driving my gas gauge shows 1/2 full. I put gas in but more than expected it took a full tank. after filling up i started the truck. the gas light came on( now showing empty), as well as the check...


you dont have a misfire, you have deeper problem with the electrical or fuel sender. Even so someone will need to get the code that is stored from the check engine light,,, to proceed.

No fire from coil to #1 cylinder


Ok since you did all that if you want to swap around fuel injectors taking note where you put cylinder 1 injector. Lets say you swapped it with cylinder 4 . Now if you get a different code say P0304 which is for cylinder 4 misfire then you know it is your injector at fault. These are wear items and should be replaced every 100,000 miles.
Also i would suggest if you dont want to do that is get some good high octane gas when you are completely empty and fill to 1/4 tank now put in Lucas Oil fuel injector cleaner and run the car till empty. Now fill up tank with high octane gas in see if this helps. Clear code after your second tank of gas and see if the code comes back. if code does pop back up then i would do the swapping of injectors as i stated earlier. I hope this helps and good luck with the diagnosis.

Misfire


This sounds like it may be as simple as cleaning the water or gunk out of the gas tank which is what I always do 1st because it's easy and inexpensive.
If your fuel is contaminated with gunk, grime, water and/or bottom junk like rust this will cause stalling!

Fill the tank with High Test, Add some dry gas and a good fuel system cleaner or 2 or 3 and this should dissolve all the gunk and clean the injectors! Read & follow the cans' instruction carefully.
If this cures the problem never let your gas tank get below 1/4 and especially never run it to empty as this is when the gunk and/or water will enter the system!
Hope this helps!
Good Luck!

1993 sentra jerking problems.


I wanted to just give a suggestion...do you go to the same gas station to get gas? My sentra ran horrible because I kept going to this same gas station. My gas would get low and it would start cutting off and trying to cut off. I let my fuel go to almost empty and then went to another gas station to fill up. It hasnt cut of for about 6 months now and I havent returned to that gas station.
