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.

This can be an issue with either water contamination or another liquid or debris in the fuel tank causing this here.If you know you still have fuel in it by the amount of fuel you are able to put in doesnt add up as being empty then most likely there is debris or another contaminant in the fuel tank and the tank needs drained and cleaned to correct this here.

If you have to add the full amount of fuel that your tank is rated for when this occurs here then most likely the fuel level sender in the fuel tank itself is at fault needing replaced.

I have seen both cause this type of fault here needing corrected.

In order to get the fuel out the tank would need to be lowered out and manually drained from the fuel level sender hole in the tank to then clean it out and then reinstall and add new fuel to it.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.
