hi,
I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question.
Ok, lets check for any stored fault code. within 5 seconds, turn the key in the ignition on-off-on-off-on, leaving it in the on position(position just before cranking). Now look at the odometer. Any fault codes will show there as Pxxxx codes - example - P0456.
Let me know if there are any codes and what they are.

I did get a high oil sign once in a while
Expert:  Eric replied 1 year ago.
HI,
I suspect that either there is some fuel in the vapor canister or the fuel tank vent valve is not opening and the vapor is building up and preventing fuel from being added in sufficient quantity.
The fuel gage reading full is likely related to this due to the vapor buildup in the tank which can give an erroneous reading from the fuel level sensor
But unfortunately the only way to tell is by inspection of both which will involve dropping the tank

Not a timely response . It was over 6 hours and I already had the answer off Google for free. Also it would do me no good to drop the tank as it is all sealed.
