Helpful to say that at least the low fuel light comes on when it needs fuel. But don't let the car stand in park or in traffic too long cause it will trick you then you would have to completely turn it off and then back on to see if it really needs gas or not if the low fuel light turns on again. Either way... this is annoying but is the least i would worry about now. All ready spent too much money and my van is still the same. Every day it gets worse. Besides... With gas being so expensive, it doesn't really matter if it works or not cause its still gonna cost about $80.00 to fill up the tank and that's with gas on a little under $4.00per gallon. =D

Have ran out of gas twice, due to the fluctuating gas gauge. Am suppose to go on a long road trip within 2 weeks and am worried. Spoke with a friend who told me it could be "the Floater" or fuel sensor. Not sure which it would be.

Gas tank sensor broken, reading for tank fluctates. You can go from full to empty while sitting at a light or vice versa many times in a short period. Occurs while driving or stopped. No way to know how much gas is in the tank. I am currently using the trip odometer and filling up every 200 miles. Sensor costs $464, and over $100 in labor to remove gas tank, drain, install new sensor, etc. So for now I don't go far without filling up, on trips watch the mileage carefully. Between this and the keyless entry computer problem this car is turning into a money pit... but still cheaper than a new one. These repairs are being put off for the time being until I can budget for them. The mechanic tells me if the computer continues to worsen the next "symptom" will be that it won't start no matter what and will need to be towed in for repairs. This just keeps getting better and better!
