damn that sucks bro


You may have lost power to the fuel pump by the sounds of it. Your gas gauge is not reading which comes from the sending unit in the gas tank. Check some fuses, and the fuel pump relay.

Checked fuses none Burt how do I check relays?


Relays are all pretty common. Find the one for the fuel pump and pull it out. Look for another relay with the same number of prongs on it and plug it into the fuel pump circuit. Turn the key to on and listen for the fuel pump to run if you can hear it or not.

I want to thank everyone for there help I truly appreciate it and my wallet too. I thought I wasn't getting some sound advice and or help thanks again and showing me wrong
