Hello and thank you for your question,

The problem you are describing is in most cases caused by a fault fuel tank sending unit which will also affect you MTE display as well. In order to determine if that is the cases you are going to need to do some testing. I have enclosed the test steps in the link below, copy and paste the link to your browser to open the steps. Take a look and let me know if you have more questions and or need more help and we can work from there.

Can't connect to the link you provided for tests to run. Hoping this solves the problem already spent $680 on other parts that were supposedly going to fix the problem.
