Greetings all from ontario canada and I thank you for inviting me aboard , with 2 older model cars in my drive way...you'll probably get sick of seeing me ! .
INFORMATION FOR YOU-------------
2000 sportage , 72,000 klm's , perfect condition and shape . HOWever......aprox. 5 weeks ago I hit a deer with it at about 60 klm . Damage was passenger front fender , grill , rad , air cond.condeser , fan , whole lighting assembly and hood . All back together now and running fine .
QUESTION FOR YOU.....................
The gas gauge was showing empty ( tank was full ) and the dash warning light stays on . After driving the truck 20-30 k the gauge is moving up slowly ( half full now ) but light still on . Because the truck sat for awhile , is it possible the gas level indicator mechanizim in the tank has seized , jammed , gummed up ? . may it work itself free ? ( seems to be ) . Although I DID NOT notice this problem right after the accident could it some-how be related ?..I don't think so since all fuel proponents travel to the back of the truck . There you have my situation fellas...
ideas ?....other then any **rat with antler** jokes will be appreciated........
cheers.............The deer hunter ( Larry )
