2004 Chevy trailblazer I fill the gas tank and gas gauge reads as half-full the gauge seems to go down as I use gas whats wrong how to fix?
Answer . \nit proply your sending unit in your gas tank\n. \n. \n. \ndrive safe . I am having the same promblem with my 2006 Trailblazer. The research I did on it points to the sending unit.
Answer . Would highly suggest NOT using anything but premium. Lower octane fuel could mess witht the emissions system damaging sensors and/or catalytic convertor. Also more than likely will decrease fuel economy and cause a pinging sound from the engine. Its really not worth the risk of damaging …anything to save a couple bucks at the pump (MORE)
If you mean service engine light, then take off the gas cap and put it back on correctly. The fuel system is pressurized, if the cap is not on tight the check engine light will come on. At least three clicks.
Usually Lincoln Navigators have a 28 gallon tank so at a price of $1.00 a gallon it would be 28 dollars...$2.00 a gallon would be 56 and $3 a gallon would be 84 dollars at the gas price of $2.80 which seems to be a good median at this time it would amount to $78.40
Answer . Fill lower than tank? Factory defect? Fill pipe restricted?. Try driving up on a piece of 2X4 to fill
There should be no such wire. Are you sure you aren't mistaking the tether (string) for a wire? . There is a wire because you can open the gas cap through the trunk if the electrical one fails, which happened to me. You need to look for it but it's there on the side of the gas cap.. Does anyone h…appen to know where to get the electrical unit that opens the fuel cap??? (MORE)
you can buy,a tank repair kit at any auto parts store, these kits are not expensive, and easy to use if you follow the directions
\nThere's no good reason. But considering the way it's done these days, manually and all, I think you'd want the person doing it to take his time. After all he's pumping incredibly flammable gasoline into your car, you don't want to end with some on your windshield, or through an open window do you?… Take the time to divert your attention to something else. Look around and feel the exciting sensation of being alive, and not on fire. Breathe. (MORE)
www.eia.doe.gov/kids/energyfacts/saving/efficiency/savingenergy.html - 26k -. the average American uses 500 gallons of gas a year,. not how many times you fill up, but then divide that by your car's tank number of gallons (ie. 15)
I really don't know but if I needed an answer quick,I would take the garden hose and check it out.
I just found the same problem on a `96 Town Car I just purchased and I believe the problem is where the filler tube connects to the tank. There is a rubber seal that I believe is the culprit. I am currently doing serious research to solve the problem because where it leaks down is right next to the …exhaust pipe and I definitely don't want me or my family to be part of any explosion. Is any one else having the same problem when filling your tank? I can be reached at email@example.com and my name is Roy. (MORE)
you open the gas tank lid, take off the cap and insert the gas pump..wtf
I would suspect some sort of blockage in the fill tube. You could try to see if you can fish something out, or else drain the fuel tank and remove the fill tube hoses to check for obstructions. If you drain the tank be sure to have a suitable container to catch any spilled gasoline, work in a well v…entilated area to avoid problems with fumes and wear gloves to keep the gasoline off of your skin as it is said to be a carcinogen. Also keep away from any ignition source. (MORE)
To fix a gas tank seal leak you must drain the gas into an emptybucket and remove the tank. Then, cover the outlet holes with puttyand re-install it.
I only use BP ultimate, or if im away from that i look for 91 or 93 octane.
When searching for one to buy, I have found that this model has an 18 Gallon tank. And you have to fill it with Premium Gas so the engine perform properly.
Gas will bubble back when filling the tank if the gas is going intoo fast. In most filler tubes for newer vehicles, there is amechanism that prevents siphoning. If the gas gets trapped in thismechanism, it cannot handle the volume and it might spit some of itback.
Morning, because as the theory goes, the fuel cools down overnight, and cold fuel is more dense than warm fuel, so get more for your money, not to mention cold fuel, which your engine will make slightly more power with.
This happened a while ago, I had the fuel tanks inlet pipe filter replaced and that solved the issue.
The seals and gaskets on your gas tank are aging OR you have a crack or microfissure in your filler gas filler neck OR gasket and lines for overflow gas reservoir are cracked and aging.
Replace the fuel injectors or clean them and replace your fuel filter. You may have to replace your fuel filter a few times. If you can, take your gas tank out and wash it with water. Sugar will not turn to sluge or 'cement' in your gas tank, actually sugar doesn't even dissolve in gasoline. It will… however block your fuel injectors and fuel filter. (MORE)
Gas tank leak repair at Canadian tire or replace it,replacement is the best choice if you're keeping the car.
Yes it is normal but you can do a slight modification. Punch a hole in the tank in the neck.. The Aero 750 has a neck from the tank filler hole into the tank itself. While filling the tank with gas, air can become trapped in the tank and the fill process can be very slow while waiting for this air …to vent.. The Tank Punch Mod puts a small hole in the top of this neck and allows the air to escape during the fill process.. Get a Phillips screwdriver, 16 penny nail, ice pick or anything that will produce a hole if it hits the metal neck hard enough. You also need a hammer and a towel. (MORE)
I have had the same problem on my C320 and it's simple to fix. You will need 2 screw drivers. Look at the gas cap and you should have a metal piece on each side of the cap which is on a spring .. You need to slightly pry up both sides and rotate the plastic peice underneath it so both line up cor…rectly.. This happens if when the cap is turned to many times and the cap actually goes into the close position even though it's not on.. If the cap isn't tight you will also get a check engine light signal,this will go away once you fix the cap.. Total process should take you under 5 min. to fix. (MORE)
You don't... If you fill the hose with fuel, put your thumb over one end and stick the other end in the tank. Make sure the end out of the tank is below the end in the tank and take your thumb off. Stick the end in your gas can and it should work without tasting gas.
Drain all of the gasoline from the fuel tank and replace it with fresh stuff. Then replace the spark plug, which will be no good anymore. After repriming the fuel lines, it should work fine.. You can verify that you have water in your fuel tank by pouring some into a translucent container and letti…ng it sit for a few minutes. There will be two layers if you have water mixed in with your gasoline. The gas will float to the top and the water will settle to the bottom.. To avoid this problem in the future, always fill the gas tank and gas can after each use and keep the gas can off the ground. Inexpensive gas can also be contaminated with water. What usually happens is that warm air enters the fuel can and when the air cools (at night, for instance), the water vapor from the air condenses out in the fuel tank or gas can. This is more of a problem on humid days. (MORE)
Kari is driving across the country The longer she drives after filling her gas tank the more gas she will have to put in next time she fills up?
The amount of gas Kari has to put in her tank is a function of how long she has driven since she last put gas in.
You can stop a leaking gas tank, by making a paste of soap on the hole of the gas tank.
If the hole is very small, you can drain the tank (if it isn't already), and clean the area around the hole. Find a screw or bolt that will fit in the hole. Cover the bottom of the bolts threads with JB Weld and screw it into the hole. Wait about 24 hrs before refilling the tank.
I have a 04 Lincoln LS V6 and it uses premium grade fuel (octane 91+). there should be a sticker in the inside of the fuel door that 'll tell you what octane level you should be using.
both sides... in the rear, under rear seats, you have to remove exhaust and drive shaft to get to it.
if engine is out of time you must use special tools to aling. 1st tool is to time engine to top dead center no. 1 cyc. you remove your crank sensor and install tool into flywheel when crank is in proper location. second is a bar which you place onto camshafts on the flat spots in front of cam and is… bolted down into holes where the valve cover bolts go. the tools p/n are 303-530 and 303-645. these tools are cheaper when purchased for a jaguar and use the same part numbers there are aftermarket suppliers If you look at Alldata-it says the 303-645 tool actually locks the crank at 45 degrees ATDC, meaning the keyway on the crank is at 6 o'clock. It will only fit in ONE spot on the ignition pulse wheel. It goes in the position of the crankshaft position sensor. All of the "flats" on the camshafts should also be lined up! (MORE)
premium/super 91+... LS does have the knock sensor, so it should run on the lower grade, but I had fuel attendant put me full tank of regular and my car ran like a farm tractor... if your car is knocking on Super, buy a can of Seafoam fuel additive, add 1 can per full tank for 4-5 fuelings... …it should solve the issue... (MORE)
Gas tanks are designed so that when the filling station pump detects a full tank, and cuts-off automatically, there is still an air space at the top of the tank. This is to allow for expansion of the fuel due to temperature changes. Therefore do not trickle fill, or use any other technique, to… get the maximum amount of fuel into tank. If you are successful in eliminating the air space you could create a leak. ie. Fill with cold fuel, then drive to a parking lot in full sunshine - the fuel will expand and force its way out through tank vent or some other place. (MORE)
For beverage CO2 tanks (2.5, 5, 10, 20lb) you can go to Fuller Fire and Safety on 2002 2nd Ave (very good customer service) and Columbus Fire and Safety 3101 Second Avenue (also good). Both will inspect your tank on first fill for a nominal fee, tag it, and fill it. Each year they will re-inspect yo…ur tank. (MORE)
There should be a flare inside the filler tube at the bottom that forces a hose to go up so that it cannot get to the fuel. Just a little ramp in the tube.
According to the 2000 Lincoln LS Owner Guide : For the 3.0 litre V6 engine and the 3.9 litre V8 engine : ( " premium " unleaded gasoline , 91 octane or higher )
Not sure what year or model your vehicle is but the filler neck could be rusted thru.
No , according to the 2004 Lincoln LS Owner Guide , the 3.0 litre V6 engine and the 3.9 litre V8 engine use ( " premium " unleaded gasoline , 91 octane or higher )
This is a no brainer. Do not attempt to fix it you will almost certainly end up dead. "REPLACE IT"
My Toyota gets about 420 miles to the tank so 1110 / 420 = 2,64 I would have to fill up twice on the journey if I started out with more than 2 / 3 tank.
my experience: yes officially this car does have knock sensor, but in my experience accidental regular in the tank (NJ gas station, full service only and clerk on the phone...) did bring loss of power and lots of knocking... computer should adjust itself to the gas but it is a process, not immedia…te reaction... (MORE)
You have a blocked vent, its more common than you might think, lots of info if you google it. Most vehicles have a vent that allows for the displacement of the air in the tank as you are filling it, and if the vent is plugged the air cannot escape and the fuel filer nozzle will shut off. The evapora…tive system vent needs to be checked. (MORE)
According to the 2010 Lincoln Navigator Owner Guide : The gas tank holds ( 28.0 U.S. gallons ) ( so , if the tank was empty and you pay $ 4.00 per gallon it would cost $ 112.00 )
" Premium " unleaded , 91 octane or higher ( according to the Owner Guide )
Because when you fill up the tank there is a evap system which takes the fumes from then tank and runs it through the engine and burns them if the valve is bad in the take it will let you overfill the tank which will saturate the canister and when you start the car the computer thinks it is still su…cking in fumes when its not and is making the car run rich will or can cause it to run sluggish or stall when not on the throttle the only way to fix this is to buy a new gas tank or you can just not fill the tank all the way (i have the same problem and i just dont fill mine all the way its cheaper) (MORE)
16 ----------------------------------------------------------------- According to the 2004 Lincoln LS Owner Guide ( 18.0 U.S. gallons ) Helpfull ( the first answer is not mine , the corrected answer is )
It depends on the type of the plastic, however it is safer to replace the tank, instead repairing it.
I fill mine every 2 weeks but that has no relation to how often you fill yours. That is directly related to how much you drive.
