Re: FJ Lost Power

im not 100% sure that was my first thought because it did feel like i had no gas but i have well over 1/4 a tank left, is there any way i would be able to check if it is or not without having to drop the tank and checking the fuel pump?

thanks

Add 5 gallons of gas and try it again. Some FJ owners have had the same problem you are having (fuel guage shows 1/4 tank) but the tank was actually empty. A faulty fuel level sending unit may be your problem. Try this out an let us know. Good luck.
