WE have an intermitent fuel sensor fault (gauge goes to zero, and then returns sometime later) that causes a check engine
light. We would like to get the light cleared, and pass the vehicle sticker inspection before it trips again, but wwe have no idea how many times we have to start, run , cold start etc to get the history ready to pass inspection
JA: Does the light stay on, or does it blink?
Customer: The engine light stays on after the fuel gauge comes back to normal.
JA: What is the model/year of your Chevy?
Customer: 2005 Mercury Sable 6 cylender.
JA: Are you fixing your Sable yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: The fix is a new sensor at 500$ plus for parts and labor. Because it is intermittent, and we keep the tank full we don't see it as a safety problem while we drive it and save up for the repair
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
