so this weekend i filled it up .5 gals over when the pump stopped and now i'm down to a bit over 3/4ths of the tank and i've only gone 27 Miles so as math goes 3/4ths is around 4 gallons and i've only drove 27miles.. 27/4=6.75 thats some bad gas milage there isnt it? I'm suspecting a gas leak somewhere because everymourning i start it gas arrow drops a noticeble bit.
My problem: Engine would not start up right away and take few seconds of cranking to start.
It turned out to be bad fuel pump. How i found that out is before you start the engine. Turn the key to the posittion just when all the dash lights turn on but before the position that starts the engine. Turn the key so the ligts go on and wait 3 seconds then turn the key back to off again. Now turn the key to that same position so all the lights turn on again wait another 3 seconds and now just turn the key all the way to start the engine. If its bad fuel pump it should start right up now. Just if you are not familiar with it a weak fuel pump will turn back and loose fuel pressure when not working so thats why you turn it on so it builds up the lost pressure. From my education the fuel pump shuts off after 2-3 seconds after you turn the key but do not start the engine and for that reason you turn the key twice.
