    fuel and gauge is probly Capacitor

    You'll need to replace the capacitors on the instrument cluster circuit board. Search archive here for hundreds of posts on this topic.
    To change language turn key to position 1 and then hold the right button on the dash for approx ten seconds. Different languages will start to be displayed on the LCD screen, release button when you see the language you want.
