Best Answer

This is fuel injected.. No float exists. This question could also pertain to the level in the fuel tank, which uses a float.

Would anyone know why the fuel gauge on a 1997 Plymouth Breeze seems to drop slow and steady over short distances When coming to a stop the fuel gauge will go from a half tank to three quarters tank?

Fuel gauges operate using a float and sensor. The float literally floats on top of the fuel. The sensor detects the position of the float. If the fuel level is high, the float stays relatively near the top. Once the fuel level starts to go down the float drops. When you push on the brakes, the fuel moves around in the tank, the way liquids do. The result is that the float moves to the top of the fuel and the gauge points to a corresponding position. Certainly there can be more accurate and reliable methods of determining fuel level. But you just need to recognize that the gauge is only reliable when the car is going straight, level and constant speed. The 'better' fuel gauge would cost many times more than the one that's in your car right now, and it wouldn't necessarily be more reliable, all it would do is stop the gauge from moving around when you take a corner or step on the brakes. What you have works. It's a relatively reliable technology.

What if your gas hand floats on your 2002 Oldsmobile silhouette how do you fix this problem?

If you are talking about the fuel gauge moving on its own or when the vehicle comes to a stops this is controlled by the fuel level sensor it consists of a float, a wire float arm, and a ceramic resistor card. The position of the float arm indicates the fuel level. The fuel level sensor contains a variable resistor which changes resistance in correspondence with the amount of fuel in the fuel tank. If after you have scanned the vehicles computer and find no problems then to correct this you will need to replace the complete fuel pump, it only comes as complete unit...

What causes fuel gauge to fluctuate on 1997 Chevy blazer?

The fuel gauge is on what is called a float. The float rises and lowers according to the level of fuel in the tank. That reading will change. If you are going up hill it may look more full than it really is, or if you are going down hill it may look lower than it really is (that could be the other way around.) The float moves freely and it will rise and lower. When you fill up and are on level ground it should give you a close to accurate reading.

Simple Answer: Measures fuel level. How it works: The simple form of this sensor is a float that floats in the fuel. The float is connected to an arm that operates a electrical rheostat that varies the voltage to the gauge.
