Depending on how much gas you put in it,
The fuel pump and gas gauge are all in one unit.The fuel pump uses the gas in the tank to keep it lubricated,So when you run out,It's like running an engine with no oil.
A little trick that will get you one more start to get you to a shop to replace the pump is to,
take a rubber hammer or something and hit the bottom of the gas tank about four times to loosen the fuel pump from it's binding bearings.

This is the fuel level sender, I can't umderstand why an Audi specialist would even think why its computer related... I worked for Audi/ VW for three years and that doesn't make sense. You can find the fuel level sender under a panel that is located under the rear seat bench.

SOURCE: When pumping gas the pump

Back pressure is going into the gas pump handle. If you havent already done so, when filling your car play around with putting the gas pump handle tube in at a different angle. My car often gives me the shits doing this too. I find that if I turn the handle so that it is at right angles or even completely upside down with the tube pointing in a different direction within the fuel intake on my car it works fine. Can be frustrating though particularly on high flow pumps.

I believe in your car there are two flasher relays. one for the hazard and one for the turn. the turn is mounted on the steering column, up by the fire wall. Newer models have them both in one relay. and one side can go bad

You need to find out the fault code that is stored that is causing the check engine light, the whole thing may be related to one failed part like the temperature sensor or the wiring to it.

THE FEUL GAUGE ON MY 2002 BUICK LASABRE DON'T WORK. WHAT COULD THAT BE?


You can typically expect that the sender unit in the fuel tank has failed and requires replacement. You can sometimes access this from an inspection panel, beneath the rear seats and carpet, but often you have to drain and drop the tank out to get to it.

The gas gage on my '97 Subaru Outback Wagon works sporadicly. I've had the sending unit replaced twice and the gage works well for about 3 months and fails again.


if the sending unit has been replaced and it works for a while then acts up again check the electrical plug and connections also look for a broken wire or nicks in the wires coating as corrosion inside the wire will cause a problem that circuit works by resistance not voltage

How do I replace the feul pump on my 1988 BMW 735i 6-cyl?


Remove your trunk mat and spare tyre. You can access fuel pump through plate in the trunk. Don't need to drop tank. Check fuses and relays first.

When pumping gas the pump constantly disengages as if the tank were full - it doesn't matter which station or pump. It goes off about 10 times while filling the tank. I've taken it to the dealer...
