I have a 99 ford escort, the fuel gage is stuck at 1/2 tank. and there
is a purge valve fault code making the check engine light stay on. are
these related? i have changed the purge valve, the canister, and
checked to make sure everything with this system is working. the other
problem is the gas gage... stuck at 1/2 tank.
the only think i can figure is the purge valve system checks the tank
pressure, and since the tank isnt at 1/2 tank of gas the system
receives an error and the check engine light comes on. am I off in
left feild here? any suggestions on how to fix this.... the car runs
perfectly besides this and had a rebuild not to long ago; but it wont
pass emmissions with the engine light on.
