1996 Ford Probe GT.
Inconsistent fuel gauge readings especially after making turns and stops. More noticeable after 1/2 tank. The gauge will go done and after driving will move back up a bit.
Consumer guide states: "The fuel gauge may read 3/4 full when the tank is full because of the fuel line return is bent and interferes with the sender in the tank".
Sometimes during a cold start, the engine idles a bit rough with slight sputtering, then it idles smoothly.
Things I've done:
• Changed spark plugs (gaped) and distributor cap - runs better
• changed fuel filter
• Replaced boost sensor - ran better
• Got a code for the MAF unit (Mass Air Flow). I cleaned it. It ran better but got code again after 150 miles.
• Added fuel system cleaner for a long trip.
