Gas gauge finally fixed
« on: December 12, 2021, 07:15:39 PM »
Erratic gas gauge started last summer...Final ly got it addressed and it appears fixed.
The 2 mechanics at the shop said this was the CLEANEST Pinto they have ever seen!
The problem may or may not have been caused by a creased/dented gas tank. What!? How did the tank get dented?? We saw the crease when the car was up in the air at the shop: it looked as if someone used a tire jack on the gas tank. No scratches or scrapes, just bent upward into tank interior. How did that happen?! We'll never know. Was the dented gas tank the cause of the malfunctioning sending unit, or the defective sending unit the culprit? It's an academic question at this point, I guess. At any rate, both the sending unit and tank got fixed. We bought the car 16 years ago....has it always had a dented gas tank? You'd think some mechanic through the years would have noticed it. There's so much ambiguity in this world, huh?
