Where is the fuel gauge sensor located on a 2005 Chevy venture LS?
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.
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
Does the engine temp sensor or the water temp sensor work the temp gauge in the dash in a 97 Chevy Venture?
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.
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…
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…
It is located about half way down the block on the drivers side closer to the back. There are two sensors one for the gauge and one for the engine. One (temp. Sensor) is located on the front top of engine by the goose neck for the upper radiator hose. the other (Temp. Sensor Switch) is on drivers side engine block.
Hi, The 'easiest' way to see if the gauge AND sensor for the temperature gauge is or should be working is to connect a scan tool to the van that can read and display the information that the computer is receiving about the coolant temperature. Very often, there are conditions where the temperature gauge will read at its minimum value, but the actual temperature is higher. This is because the computer actually controls the gauge…
