Q: Gas gauge not working properly.

asked by on

The gas gauge does not work properly and the Check Engine light is on.

I would have a technician check the codes on the computer. It may help find the problem your having. The gas gauge not working could be the sending unit in the tank or the wiring going to the gauge. I would have a technician look at it to determine the problem.
