Chevy 1994 Corsica 136,829 dont know enngin size


When I put it in reverse the engine shakes vilontly, after about a ten mile trip when I rest the little can on the dash lights up slowy and then stays, and after letting it sit for a while the poer is on when I put the key in but when I go to turn it over the power leaves. It then eventualy starts to come back and allows me to start the turn over with gas. The engine turns over but then dies after I let the acelerator go

3 Moderators have already tried to decipher what you are trying to describe and we cant come to an agreement. LOL. What is the "can on the dash"? That lights up slowly.

Hola!
Como estas?
La luz que indica que el combustible esta bajo se empieza a iluminar poco a poco hasta quedar solida.
Ahora bien. Que cantidad de gasolina tiene tu tanque?
Pareciese que la bomba no esta funcionando correctamente pero. Primero dime la cantidad de gas que tiene tu tanque de gasolina.

No importando que el sensor marque combustible bajo. Esa luz es solo un aviso de atencion.
Espero tu respuesta para continuar con el diagnostico y gracias mil por tu Donacion!

Estamos para servirte!

Fishman says:

Hello!
How are you?
The light that indicates that the fuel is low is started illuminating little by little up to remaining solid.
Now well. What quantity of gasoline does your tank have?
It seemed that the bomb is not working correctly but. First say to me the gas quantity that has your tank of gasoline

I just don't think it is very nice to call the car a bomb! :Shock: :lol:

Sorry I wrote that at like 2 in the morning, basicaly I woke up to go to work this morning and the power was completly gone.I had my gf buy one of those battery jumper cables and im charging it. I hope the power issue is just a battrey and not the alternator. There was enough power for it to go din when the door was open and the key was in the ignition. The little can im talking about on the dash. Lookas like an oil can with a drip. And it fashes slowly and then stays lit up when im stoped or going slowly up and incline. Like 5-10 mph

Sounds like you have an oil pressure problem-lets do an engine flush and see what happens to the can in the dash.

May be both battery and alternater. May also be a parasitic draw draining the battery.

Some ars light up several lights when the system voltage is low. Is it full of oil? Just to be safe.
