not at all

attempted the phone call, no answer, the gauge reading inaccurate indicates a problem in the fuel send unit, this part is normally faulty for these reason, the emission code is due to the amount of gas inside the tank ,a unit traps the gas fumes and injects them into the intake this occurs when the tank is filled more than half, the fuel level isnt consist with the gauge and the computer is identifying this, please rate me 5 stars, experts are not paid by the site unless they have a positive rating
