Re: Misfires and codes with low gas level

Dirt and debri in the tank. Dirty gas and poor quality is a factor. Have you tried cleaning the tank?

Re: High pitched noise coming from the car.

It might be dirt getting in the sensor have you tried washing the car? Dirt and debri can cause a false fault. Dirt on the rotors and hubs can and will cause a shrilling sound.
