Model Years Affected: 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009

Average Mileage: 89,509 mi (55,155 mi - 147,000 mi)


The fuel gauge may not read correctly and/or the Check Engine Light may illuminate with code P0455/P0461 stored for a fuel level sensor issue. These faults may be caused by a fuel vapor line inside the fuel take interfering with the fuel level sensor. If this is found to be the case, repositioned and securing the vapor line should correct this concern. If no fault is found with the fuel vapor line, the fuel level sensor itself may be at fault.

    I had a fuel leak, and had it fixed turned out it was the fuel pump, so I pick up my car and the check engine light turns on and my gas gauge isnt moving it just sits on E. Not realizing what the symbol was at the time, I drive off. I put gas in my car and the gas gauge didnt even move!Im taking it back today where I got fixed at.
