Saturn Repair Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.
Is the engine running rough at all or any smoke from the exhaust?
Did the dealer check or replace the fuel level sensor at all?
Let me know so we can continue,thanks Pete
Were fault codes checked with a fully compatible scan tool to see what codes are setting with this fault here?
Let me know,thanks Pete
Is it reading empty now and do you have a scan tool to check engine data signals at all?
I apologize for the delay as I had an emergency come up.
If there is any way to re check the codes this will help.IN some cases a local parts store may rent out a scan tool to do this.
The only other issue I see here is a fault with the PCM (engine and transmission computer) as this reads the fuel level sensor then sends the signal to the instrument cluster gauge.The PCM and cluster also work for fuel mileage distance.If the PCM has an internal fault or calibration fault with a reprogram needed this can cause this issue here.If they did not check for any programming this needs done and usually done by a dealer (GM dealer).
I have seen the gauge act up as well but usually if it passes the sweep test then its o.k.I am leaning more towards a PCM fault here possibly.
