Aaaah yes ... the bad fuel problem-)
Yes, it can cause damage to the engine. Yes, it can damage a sensor.
Solution: go to an auto parts store that can check error codes. Then, the error code will say which sensor is bad.
Most likey it's these sensors (with estimated prices): MAP - $30 Oxygen - $20 and last (not a sensor) egr (valve) - $80 fuel injector - $70 each spark plugs - $2-15 fuel filter - $8
Contaminated fuel will certainly damage an 02 sensor and the cat as well. Yes. O2 sensors do wear out even under ideal conditions but bad fuel, racing fuel, fuel with lead accelerate the deterioating effects the exhaust gases & particles have on the sensor. Even when there is no sign of a problem it's not a bad idea to replace the O2 sensors at 60k or 70k as they can degrade slowly over time and impact the efficiency of the engine without being noticeable.
A bad oxygen sensor can cause power loss, reduced fuel economy and damage to your catalytic converter.
The computer can deliver the wrong amount of fuel resulting in poor performance, wasted fuel or valve damage, and that's IF it even runs at all.
Fuel speed sensor? Try again, need more info.
Gas sensor? Not sure what you mean, could it be a Fuel gauge sensor? Oxygen sensor? Fuel pressure regulator?
What will a bad mass air flow sensor cause? Mass Air flow sensor regulates amount of air coming in to the amount of fuel being used. If this sensor is bad you would have either a overly rich or lean fuel condition. Check the fuel pump as mass air flow sensor has no moving parts and rarely goes out.
Bad fuel pressure regulator, Map. sensor not working or the vacuum line is bad or off of the sensor. You did not say what year it is.
bad or misreading MAP or MAF sensors, bad ECT sensor, bad TPS sensor, stuck open fuel injector, or problem with fuel system, faulty parameters set in ECU or bad ECU.
sounds like you have a bad cam position sensor,a clogged fuel filter,or a bad fuel pump sounds like you have a bad cam position sensor,a clogged fuel filter,or a bad fuel pump
mass air sensor or purge valve sensor could be a bad fuel pressure regulator
It relays bad info to the gauge. If you have a GM, it is probably what is wrong.
The most common reason for the fuel gauge in an Impala to stop at half full is a bad fuel sensor. The sensor is mounted inside of the fuel tank.
bad fuel filter, bad injector, bad crank sensor, and ignition system, bad drivers (electric, not you) bad gas, clogged fuel line (no gas). could be anything
Liability is with the seller of the fuel if you can prove that the fuel was contaminated.
service light poor fuel milage
NO it will not.
Bad O2 sensor or O2 sensor not working properlyO2 sensor senses the concentration of oxygen in the exhaust gases and send signal to ECU to regulate Air fuel ratio.If O2 sensor is bad or not working then it does not work effectively so air fuel ratio is not maintained. And it may create following causes.Increased tailpipe emissionsHesitation on accelerationIncreased fuel consumptionRough idlingStallingAnd of course Sensor Light on dash indicates problem
yes, it is protecting the motor from damage.
Fuel rail pressure sensor fault. Most usually an out of range fault caused by a plugged fuel filter, bad fuel pump or faulty sensor. (In that order)
A bad crankshaft position sensor on your Chrysler 300 will cause the engine to run very rough or not run at all. The malfunctioning sensor can cause damage to your engine, if not repaired.
Sure you could get one of these*P0460 Fuel Level Sensor Circuit Malfunction*P0461 Fuel Level Sensor Circuit Range/Performance*P0462 Fuel Level Sensor Circuit Low Input*P0463 Fuel Level Sensor Circuit High Input*P0464 Fuel Level Sensor Circuit Intermittent
The fuel gauge in a 2001 Cherokee could be having different readings due to a bad fuel sensor. The sensor is mounted inside of the fuel tank.
The crankshaft position sensor has nothing to do with the fuel pump but a defective fuel pump relay and fuel pump fuse will and also a missing ground circuit will cause it not to run
