Gas Gage

I took my 2004 Toyota Solera in for repair of a non functioning gas gage. They finally diagonsed the "problem" It will cost me over $1000 to get the gas gage repaired. They tell me the neighborhood mechanic I took it to first disconnected some combo meter stuff. My neighborhood mechanic told me that he couldnt fix the problem and that I shd. take it to Toyota Glendora. Are Toyotas so delicate and complex that it takes $1000 to fix a gas gage? They say the combo meter (?) needs to be replaced. Why is everything that it controls still works? That's it for me and Toyota. Never again!

when your gas gauge goes bad the problem is most likely in your tank. today's vehicles are run by computer to detect how much fuel remains.

most likely the sensor in the tank goes bad. the part itself is not expensive but the labor to take it apart is time consuming.

try another dealer instead. The dealer is trying to lighten your wallet.
