A couple of questions concerning our mini-van:
-Any suggestions on diagnosing a problem with the fuel gauge?
Specifically, it almost always show empty (yes, even after a fill-up), with
the exception of after driving for perhaps an hour or so it will start to
climb to what I "think" the actual level is, then kind of bounce around
before plummeting back to empty again. I had a mechanic briefly take a look
at it and he disconnected the cabling underneath the chassis while the
ignition was on, but there was no change in the gauge needle.
As it is, I have to keep track of fuel consumption by using my trip
-When I purchased the van, the horn, air-bag, and cruise control all didn't
work (air-bag warning light flashing). I've since pulled the steering wheel
and changed the clockspring inside and got my horn and air bag working
again, but still no cruise. Any other suggestions? All brake pads and shoes
are freshly replaced, no burnt out tail-lights, etc. But...the ABS light is
and always has been on. The same mechanic said the sensor was faulty. Would
-We regularly take a 2.5 hour trip south to visit my in-laws. After driving
for aprox. 115 to 125 miles the "check engine" light comes on. Without fail.
Both directions. I at first thought it was overheating, but after checking
the temp gauge in-dash, checking the fluid levels, and changing the
thermostat, it continues. This only happens while highway driving at about
65 - 70 mph. Stopping for 10 or 15 minutes "sometimes" makes the light go
out, but not always.
Hope someone can help.
