Re: Fuel Gage slow to respond...
My 99 did that after a fuel filter change a few months ago. No damage due to filling the tank. Its been working like that ever since. Very slow to indicate after filling (takes about 12 miles till the needle tops out), and never shows full.
I was not happy about it, but not worth working on it at this point. I just go by the mileage driven. So far, I show 235 miles and still not on the red portion of the gage. It worked perfectly before the filter change. I too asked, and found it just not worth digging into, as much as I would rather it did.
Still curious what exactly caused that to happen?
