problem #2

S-10 Pickup 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

1)fuel guage stuck at around 1/4 of a tank when 1/4 or below. Had to put vehicle into neutral to get accurate reading. Has ran out of gas when showing 1/4 of tank. Taken to dealership - replaced fuel level sensor. Problem was not fixed. Took back again and other items were replaced. Seems to be fixed, but it has only been 1 week. 2)"popping" noise heard on the drivers side in the front end. Took in same time as the first gasoline incident. Replaced ball joint and greased front end. Seemed fine until about 1 month later and then noise came back, along with a very bad "bouncing" in the front end that made it feel like the front drivers side tire was comming off. Took back to dealership (same time as second gasoline visit) said that it was the "design of the vehicle" - but yet it never did this until then. Dealership has been very cooperative.

Computer chip constantly fails which causes a chain reaction of failures to occur. The truck is unreliable with various brake failures and constant towing back to the dealership. The dealership is patching the truck with minor repairs instead of actually doing a thorough inspection.
