problem #1

Century 6-cyl

Began hearing popping noise across front, from wheel areas. Took into dealer where I purchased the vehicle several times. They drove it and heard the noise but couldn't find what it was. Kept getting worse and on 8/31/04, they contacted another dealership where they had a vehicle with the same problem. They supposed fixed it, but now it's doing it again. Doesn't matter if the roads are wet or dry. Now, another problem. On 5/28/05, I made a trip and stopped for fuel and went to a fast food place next to the gas station and while waiting for my order, an alert bell started dinging and my fuel gauge went down to the empty mark. I could not find anyplace open to get help (memorial day holiday). After driving about 4 miles down the highway, the gage came back to the full mark. It did not buck or act up before this happened. Also, low tire light keeps coming on. Tire pressure is ok.
