The dreaded P0463 code
Hi, all, owner of a 2009 Nissan Cube Krom here.
So my Service Engine Soon light went on, and I had it diagnosed by a Dobb's Tire place. The code is P0463, which means I may need a fuel level sending unit. The replacement price, as quoted by the online site RepairPal, would be between $764-$1144. Ouch. The site then goes on to say this:
Can I drive with a fuel level sending unit problem?
The vehicle can be driven without the fuel gauge. Most people use the trip meter and fill up the gas tank every time they reach their preferred (sic) mileage.
So obviously I would prefer not to spend maybe $1000 on this repair. But how do I use the trip meter instead of a fuel gauge to figure out if I need gas?
BTW - the fuel gauge has acted up only twice, in as many days, way last November, when it suddenly read as if the car didn't have any gas. When I restarted the car, the gauge read fine. No problems since.
