When I fill up my 2005 Malibu, after I drive away within a few kms, the fuel gauge needle drops to near empty and the low fuel warning and sometimes the service engine light comes on. After I have driven about 50 kms, the fuel gauge goes back to normal and the warning lights go off. I also have an intermittent problem with it starting the first time I turn the key.

My 2003 Galant isn't getting fuel to the engine. I replaced the pump yet I'm still getting no fuel. The fuel gauge is still reading a quarter tank of fuel. I check all my fuzes and all are working. So, now I suspect the fuel pump relay that my manual talks about but doesn't show me where the relay is located. First, I would like to know which relay controls the fuel pump. If that doesn't work what else would cause the vehicle not to pump fuel to the engine?

Just had our 2001 ford expedition's fuel pump replaced and the fuel gauge has since then not been reading accurately. What could cause this?

If the guage is reading but not accurately it may be the incorrect fuel pump for the vehicle or the float is may not be in the retaining clip all the way. Also possible that the float got bent during installation. Can you describe what the guage is d ... 2001 Ford Expedition
