Default plz help

I am getting this weird thing happening to me I will drive the car and get to a quarter tank and the SES light comes on and then when I fill up it goes away. and I also have a lot of extra grease on the outside of the brake caliper and some is leaking onto my wheels and there is a lot of brake dust on the wheels too any Ideas and will a rotor and calipers from any other car fit on our cars like from a park avenue or a lesabre. and also where is the fuel filter located at. I also have one last question I got it with aftermarket V force mufflers on it too and what do you all think of those vs a magnaflow muffler set up with the resonator removed and a high flow cat. Just some things that have been floating around in the brain for a while after reading some of the posts here

Please scan the car and get the code that is coming up each time your tank gets low.

That'* probably not grease..that'* probably brake fluid and it'* important you have it looked at soon before your brakes can possibly fail on you. I suspect a leak at the hose to caliper connection because someone let the caliper hang on the hose w/o being supported during a brake pad change.

Brake dust on the wheels...Meguires Hot Rims works wonders.. there are also other good products out there.

GXP calipers and rotors can be retrofitted onto the 00+'*

V force...never heard of it.

I suspect axle boot grease is coming out from a CV boot, and spraying on the caliper while spinning. We've seen this happen a couple times.

Is the grease a babyshit green color?
