Hello all,


I have a 2000 rodeo 3.2 ls and lately when the truck is low on gas ,I mean about a quarter tank left,the needle plunges to empty and the gas light and the check engine light turn on.The truck currently has 84,000 miles.Its the weirdest thing cause its still got a 1/4 tank of gas left.Does anyone know what this can be? Thanks in advance.-eddie

could be a number of things like wiring harness shorting out, bad fuel pump,bad fuel gauge your best bet is to take it to a local garage and have them hook it to the computer and diagnose it
