But what would cause those to set off? My gas gauge has been acting funny it shows how much gas I have then the numbers go up then down. Would that be something that could cause it? Could it be my fule pump? Or sending unit?

If you threw rods I would think the oil light might be on at idle? So we are back to when did this start? All at once or gradual?
