Hi, yesterday I put gas in my truck and I was driving and noticed the fuel guage didn't register the gas. I shut the car off and restarted about 4 time. Still nothing. Finally after about 15 minutes it registered. Then last night when I was driving the check engine light came on. Also sometimes I feel like when I push the gas pedal there's no power going to engine and I have to floor it to get power. Please help. Thank you!

First, the float may be going bad in the fuel tank. It is part of the fuel pump and sends the signal to the gauge.

As far as the engine, if the check engine light is on, there is a trouble code stored in the computer. Take it to a nationally recognized parts store and have them scan the computer for codes. Most will do it for free.

Let me know what they tell you.
