i have seen many fuel level sending units go bad in the fuel tank. The little fingers on them wear off. If this is occurring in park or neutral with the fuel sloshing, it is a normal condition due to the buffer being disengaged in the cluster.
The sending unit is probably bad, not unusual.
Mine does, too.. Annoying.
That is the temp. Gauge sending unit.
If the vehicle will stall and will not restart or appears to be out of fuel but the fuel gauge reads above empty, replace the fuel sensor assembly and auxiliary tank fuel level sensor if equipped. if not, replace the instrument cluster.
fuel sending unit broken wire or gauge is bad
bad sending unit
if you are refering to the sensor for the fuel gauge, it is in the fuel tank with the fuel pump.
need more info, engine-details- have you checked vacuum with gauge? etc.
Top rear of the engine next to the distributor.
The fuel sensor in the gas tank is bad.
It's a GM
on the left side at the gauge light switch is a push button , push it 4 times and it should work
needs a fuel level sending unit 100 percent sure
The fuel sending unit is the most likely cause. The wiring to the unit can go bad or the unit itself fails.
Your gauge could be bad but sometimes the floats in the gas tank get holes in them and fill with gas. this causes the float to stay at the bottom and your gauge to read empty. U might also check the wiring from the sender at the fuel tank to the gas gauge itself.
Connect a freon tank an gauge to the Astros low side ac port. Start the engine and open the ac to high. Open the freon tank and fill the system till the gauge shows full.
The fuel pump may be fine but the sending unit may not be. The sending unit is probably the most common cause of fuel gauge failure.
That depends entirely on the vehicle and on how accurate the gauge is.
Most likely inside the fuel tank. You will have to drop the fuel tank and remove the retaining ring on top of the tank and the pump/gauge/filter assembly will come out.
probably no gas, if there is gas then your gauge in the tank is broken or frozen
The gauge or sensor needs to be replaced.
The fuel gauge on a Chevy may become stuck if the sending unit is defective or become disconnected. Without a signal from the tank, the gauge will not move.
I am willing to bet that you have had someting inside your gas tank or dash worked on recently. The issue is that the plug for your sending unit is on backwards or the wires to your gauge are reversed.
