My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.
My info is limited on your model here but I see no one else has responded and thought I would see if I can help here.
If all other gauges are operating properly with this fault here and no other components are affected the most common cause is the instrument cluster/dash itself.The odometer runs off of the speedometer and if the speedometer is operating properly this does indicate a fault with the instrument cluster/dash itself with it needing replaced to correct this here.
As for the fuel fill issue this is a separate fault.This indicates the tank isn't venting the pressure when fuel is being put in.This can be due to a collapsed fuel vent line at the tank or leading to the tank or plugged vent line or valve issue.This will need checked/tested further to pinpoint the cause here and once located it can then be repaired/replaced to correct this fault.
Thanks Pete
