My gas needle blinks empty even after I fill up. My speedometer doesn't work one bit and my mileage either.
Is there a recall that would cover this????

My boyfriend checked the fuses and they were ok. We are puzzled as to what the problem is. Any idea as to what the problem could be? We are trying not to have to take the truck to a mechanic...but will if we have to.
I was using pliers but the cable seems stretched and they no longer work. I tried using a long screw driver to get to the latch but there is no access to the hood release. Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance

I discovered the problem. The problem was a bad distributor, which I discovered while doing a tune-up of the car. I removed the distributor cap to install a new rotor and was surprised to find copper wire fragments inside the distributor cap--big red flag. I look at the distributor armature and found that the fragments appeared to have some from this armature, so I immediately ordered a new one. I installed the new distributor and the warning light was gone. Problem solved. It would be remiss of me if I didn't mention that Scotty Kilmer had suggested that the distributor was the problem weeks before I discovered it, myself.

That light came on and I shut it off and wait and tried starting it and going again it was OK for a little bit but the light came back on and couldn't go over 30 mph. I'm trying to find out where the cable is and how to clean it.
