buy a new viburam for the back of the fuel gauge on the speedo. It is a heat element that reads the sending unit in the tank

how do you fix a gas guage on a 1989 ford aerostar
Then fix it
Have you checked the gas floater in the gas tank?
Several things can cause the gas gauge to not work. Check the fuel gauge fuse, the wiring, the gauge, and the fuel sending unit to find the problem.
The fuel sensor is in the gas tank and probably needs replaced, the tank will have to come out to fix it.
Could be bad gauge or float stuck in fuel tank
Its probably the float in the gas tank that tells how much fuel is left in the tank... its sticking.
Most fuel gauge problems are the result of a faulty fuel gauge sending unit located in the fuel tank.
check your cables, fuses and your float
check the wiering /our your sending unit no good
check sending unit in tank and check gauge for proper operation and connections, and grounds
On my 1966 bus the gas gauge has 3 terminals. +,G and the light. The + is black, G is Grey and the light is the striped wire
I have an 05 impala and had problems with the speedometer and fuel gauge. The only way to fix it was to replace the whole instrument cluster. Pretty easy to do, only took about 45 minutes.
i dont speak car!
Check the ground to the tank. That may help
You will have to replace the fuel sending unit inside of the fuel tank.
Pull the gas tank and replace float but check all wires to the tank first
the most likely fix for it is to take the sending unit out of the tank and check the contacts for the resistors on it. then try to repair if possible or replace it.
when the needle is all the way to the right(away from the red) the tank is full the closer the needle gets to the red the less gas you have
i would recommend getting gas when that happens. perhaps take it to the mechanic to fix the gauge
gas gauge sticks either full or empty This is a known problem with Chevy's that they will not recall on. I had same problem with my 2000 Blazer. Had to replace fuel pump / gauge assembly in tank. It took a couple of hours to do, but was worth the headache having a gauge that works now, No more running out of gas or watching mileage.
