My truck gremlin hit twice today!
I typically start looking for a gas station around the 1/4 tank mark. So I left work today right at a 1/4 tank left and when to get my daughter from school first about 35 miles away. When I pulled into the drive ( down hill slope) the low fuel indicator came on. Ususally that leaves me about 50 miles before I get to E. I was a little early so I shut it down and waited to the rug ray race to the cars. When I fired it back up the needle did not move and it started sputtering. I pulled over immediately and called a buddy to bring some diesel so I didn't run it dry. I put about 2 gallons in and fired it back up and the needle still didn't move, but I limped it the gas station anyway. I put in 22 gallons... So WTF happened?
The other issue happen when I got in the truck at work. I started it up and turned the heater OFF till it got warm. When I tried to turn it back on... Nothing. It didn't come back on until after I went though the diesel fiasco, and then it came back on by itself.
The truck is relatively new to me. I've only had it for about 2 months and today it was about 30* outside.
