On the display where the numbers show how many mpg you are getting, or how many miles left until you are out of gas, part of the number lights are missing. For instance, the 8 looks like a 0, a 3 looks like a ]. It is very difficult to know what these numbers are. My gas tank guage always says it is full, so that is no help. Any easy Ideas I could try? Thanks

Regarding my 1999 Winstar, I have a problem with the instrument panel going crazy every now and then. The odometer pegs back and forth from 0 to 100 mph+, the Tach locks at an rpm and will not move. Further, the gas guage quits working for a little while. This lasts anywhere from 2 minutes up to 10 minutes and then everything settles down and begins to work correctly. The check engine light never comes on during this craziness. How can I fix this problem?

Gas Guage The gas guage in my cobalt keeps going up and down to full and then to the level its really supposed to be. Is it really because I put in supreme plus last time I filled up because the gas station I usually fill up at ran out of regular or is it just a gas guage problem?

I replaced the cheap plastic accelerator pedal, because it wore out. I must not have done that correctly, because immediately after installing the new pedal which required me to unhook a plug in wire, the gas guage stopped working. It now shows out of gas. Is there a way to check the cause of the gas guage failure?

I can jump start my car, but it only runs when i have my foot on the gas. It will run as long as my foot is on the gas, but as soon as I release the gas, the RPM drops to 0 and the engine shuts off and the battery meter slowly goes from 14 V to 0 V. Im trying to figure out if it is the battery, the alternator, or the voltage regulator. (it could be something else but my limited knowledge of cars gets me thinking it is one of these) any help is appreciated, what is wrong?
First thing I'd do there is charge the battery using a battery charger, then have it load tested. Nothing else in the system can be properly tested if the battery will not pass that test. Once that has been done and if the battery is bad, you have r ... 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Gas guage not working on daughter's 1997 Buick Lesabre - just replaced the fuel pump-should we have done something while the tank was off for the gas guage?

The gas guage and odometer on my 94 mercury cougar dont work. how hard are these problems to fix? would it be something i could possibly do mysef? because i want to learn to fix things on my car myself and it bugs me that both these things dont work. especially the gas guage.
It is not easy to remove the fuel tank, the guage is inside the fuel tank.. The sensor for the odometer is on the transfer case on the transmission. It may be better to go toprofessional. Good Luck. ... 1994 Mercury Cougar
