Recently my car could not start, and it finally started after a new FPR.

One thing I noticed was that the readings of the fuel gauge on the dashboard are kind of oscillating. When the car first started, it was at 7/16. But during the driving, it went to around 5/16. It may move back 1/16 but the starting time was the highest. I wonder if the fuel sending unit has some issues.

Sounds like your fuel level sender is on it's way out. I ignored mine until it threw a code and prevented me from passing emissions in June...

Good to know. I will just ignore them for now. Razz

Thanks.
