Bad gauge, stuck sending unit in tank, grounded signal wire
When the ignition is first turned on you should hear the pump start up. If you do then the pump is getting power. There is a port on the fuel rail where you can put a gauge to see if the pump is putting out pressure.
Low battery and when attempting to start car ran battery further down. Date and time went to default settings and fuel gauge registered empty. Charged battery. Fuel gauge still showing nothing. Picked up answer from Audiworld post. Removed fuse 15 (instrument cluster) & 28 (fuel pump), turned on ignition or to start the car - might not start, but mine did), put fuses back in. Fuel gauge now correct.
The fuel sending unit is sticking, or the wiring to the gauge is loose. These are the two most common causes of an erratic gauge.
Most vehicles have one fuse that protects all the gauges so if the fuel gauge is the only one not working, the fuse is probably okay. Most causes for a inop fuel gauge is a faulty fuel gauge sending unit in the fuel tank.
a bad ground
Yes. The fuel gauge in most vehicles will settle at 'empty' with the ignition off.
Check ignition switch
Fuel pressure (ignition key turned to on, engine not running): 50 to 60 psi
Need to replace fuel pump relay.
The most likely cause is the continuous supply of fuel to the cylinders owing to the supply pump, which is electrical, not switching off.
The fuel sloshes back & forth as you accelerate.
I believe this usually this happens if the fuel / air mixture is not rich enough (too much air / too little fuel) which causes the cylinder heads to get too hot which means that any unburnt fuel in the cylinders will continue to ignite even after the ignition has been cut.
There is no relay for the fuel gauge. It is powered directly off the ignition switch. The fuel pump relay is behind the driver in the engine compartment on the fire wall just forward of the air cleaner.
Defected fuel pump sending unit. The #1 cause is that the sulfur in todays gas coats the fuel leveling sensor and causes the fuel gauge to act up. It is a common problem that is starting to take place.
No, the filter can not pump. It is a filter.
probably timing or valves. cylinders getting too hot which is igniting fuel that is left after it has been turned off
If the 1996 Dodge Intrepid will not start, there might be an issue with the battery or the starter. This could also be a problem with the solenoid or the fuel gauge or fuel pump. The problem and the fix will vary depending on whether the car is completely dead or is cranking when the ignition is turned.
When you turn a corner the guage fluctuates.
On the engine there is a test port located on the fuel rail. A fuel pressure gauge can be attached to it. A test gauge can be purchsed from your local auto parts store. With gauge attached, cycle ignition key on and off several times. Fuel pressure should peak between 41 and 47 psi.
there is always fuel pressure even the car is on or not, u will need to release fuel pressure before doing any thing in the fuel line
There are many causes for a car not to start. One of the causes can be the fuel pump which pumps fuel into the carburetter to spray into the ignition chamber.A bad pump may not pump the fuel into the carburetter .
Hi, there is a lift pump in the tank, it is a fuel gauge sender & lift pump combined in 1 unit. I have changed 1 on a focus & mondeo tomorrow because no fuel being fired to the filters when ignition turned on.
The normal causes of an inoperative fuel gauge is the sending unit in the tank. Since the truck is 15+years old you might as well replace the fuel pump when you have the fuel tank removed.
A gauge for measuring fuel in a tank.
Reset a fuel gauge? There is not reset for a fuel gauge.
