The fuel level sensor is located in the fuel tank and is mounted on the fuel "sender" assembly. This is the assembly that contains the fuel pump. The sensor comes as a unit with the attached float.

The sensor can be changed, separate from the fuel pump, but it may be a good idea to change the whole assembly while you are there IF you have had any problems with it. But you can save a little money by just changing the sensor.

You will have to drain and remove the fuel tank to get to the assembly.

Hi, It sounds like you have a fuel level sensor that is starting to go bad. This sensor is located in the fuel tank, and depending on the age of the van, will probably have to be replaced.

The sensor used for displaying the engine coolant temperature on the gauge in the dash is located near the thermostat housing. I have included a link that has pictures that show its location. Just click on the pictures to enlarge them. When you do, you can see the wires that go to the sensor. Good Luck, Greg

if you are refering to the sensor for the fuel gauge, it is in the fuel tank with the fuel pump.

THE temp sending unit 4 the inside gauge usally has 1 wire & the sending unit 4 the Computer has 2 wires.

The coolant fan sensor is the same as the sensor that shows the coolant temperature on the dash gauge. It is located on the intake manifold.

Hi, Probably 95% of the time, or more, the problem with a fuel gauge not reading correctly is the fuel level sensor. This sensor is located in the fuel tank and that tank will have to be drained and dropped to get to the sensor. Sorry about that. Good Luck

My fuel gauge, odometer and radiator gauge isn't working and my radio says locked. How can I fix this?

The fuel gauge sensor is located in the fuel tank. The fuel gauge sensor and fuel pump are one assembly. To my knowledge they are sold as one unit and is fairly expensive. The fuel tank must be dropped to R&R the assembly.

The sensor for the temp gauge in the 96 S10 4.3L would be the sensor located between #3 and #5 spark plugs, it has one wire plugged to it. The temp sensor for the ECM is located next to the thermostat housing, it has two wires plugged to it.

sticking float on the fuel pump, or malfunction in the float

could be a bad sensor a bad gauge or a broken or disconnected wire

the oil pressure sensor, for a dash with idiot lights (no gauge), is located on the top of the engine at the back behind the distributor virtically screwed in. The oil guage sensor, for a dash with an oil gauge, is located above the oil filter on the drivers side of the engine screwed in horizontally.

Where is the engin temperature gauge sensor located on the 1999 cadillac catera?

There is'nt one on the guage cluster but there is on the motor up by the thermostat housing

It is most likely the oil pressure sensor, located on the front of the engine block near the oil filter. There is also a slim possibility that the gauge in the instrument cluster is defective.

Hi, Most of the time, the problem with the fuel gauge not working can be traced back to the fuel level sensor, which is in the gas tank. What happens is the little metal "fingers" on the sensor break - over time - and the gauge starts to either stick in one position or jump around all over the place. The ultimate fix is usually to replace that sensor. In order to do that, the fuel tank must be drained and removed. Good Luck, Greg

I don't think Chevy changed the location of the knock sensor. On my 1994 4.3 its on the left hand (drivers side). There are 2 sensors there, one of them is the temp gauge sending unit and the other is the knock sensor.

The fuse box for the fuel gauge on 1998 Chevy blazer is located on the driver side. It is near the hook latch.

the sending unit is attached to the fuel pump in the tank.

Hi, I'm assuming you mean the coolant temperature sensor - the one that drives the temperature indicator gauge in the dash. If that is the case, the temperature sensor is located right next to the thermostat housing. This is located on the left side of the engine (driver side), just below the throttle body. I have included a link that shows where the thermostat housing is located, and if you look closely, you will see the wires and connector that go to the sensor. Good Luck, Greg

Have a mechanic test the fuel sensor circuit. Likely the sensor has gone bad and will require replacement.

There is a coolant temperature sensor and a temperature gauge sensor. the coolant sensor is located on driver side of the cylinder head. screws right into it, and the temperature gauge sensor is on the front side of the cylinder head right under the distributor. hope this helps

The fuel gauge fuse on 1998 Chevy blazer is located in the front of the blazer. It is on the driver side next to the hook latch.
