 Previous complaint of no start condition-dealer suggests new fuel pump at an estimated cost of 1000.00. i have determined that fix relates to a faulty gas cap. it puts the fuel system in a deep vacuum on a hot or warm restart, this part cost 6.60 at the local parts store. i can't believe that the dealer overlooked this and charged me 72.00 for a fuel pressure test and then tried to sell me a 1000.00 job by shotgunning in a part! *ak

 Noticed gas gauge was dropping to empty when i had a full tank of gas. kept an eye on it and the problem became worse. now my gas gauge does not read at all. i can be on empty and it reads that i have more than a half tank left. severly times i have almost run out of gas due to this problem. i know have to watch my mileage and determine when i need to get gas.
