About 3 yrs ago the fuel guage would jump to empty when full. Car would die than start and run for awhile and then it would happen again. Took it to the dealer and they fixed it. 3 yrs later I'm having the same problem again about 50,000 miles later. I see that I'm not alone with this problem. Will the Manufature honor this defect?

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Amanda J. Pierce, MBA Joe, I would recommend first contacting the dealership that made your initial repair, there may be a warranty on the part if so I am not sure if you may have exceeded that. I do know that there is a reprogram of the PCM "Power Control Module". I hope this Helps!
