Hey Sim==If it does it only while the engine is running, the sending unit could be inacurate. You need to install a manual gauge to see what the actual reading is. If it goes to red before starting the engine the wire to the sending unit is probably disconnected. Good luckJoe

How can you determine a bad fuel pump in a buick lesabre?

Attach a fuel pressure gauge at the throttle body on the top of the motor to determine fuel pressure. Gauge can be borrowed at auto zone and they can assist as well.

Will replacing the oil pump keep your oil pressure gauge from inching up toward the red zone?

Quite simply, extremely unlikely. The oil pump is a means of keeping the oil flowing to the vital areas of the engine. Real oil pressure is (for the most part) created by the main and big end bearings. I would double check your pressure by tapping into the sensor port with a mechanical gauge, you most likely have a defective gauge or sender. Your oil pressure should drop a little as the oil heats up and begins to thin out, not increase.

Why does a spinning baseball curve away from the trajectory it would follow if it weren't spinning?

The boundary layer of air next to the skin gets dragged around with the spinning ball, on one side its away from the direction of motion creating low pressure zone, on the other side its against the direction of motion, building a high pressure zone, the pressure difference pushes the ball from the high pressure to the low pressure zone.

In the Northern Hemisphere winds blow to the between the subtropical high pressure zone and subpolar low pressure zone?

The winds that blow between the subtropical high pressure zone and the sub-polar low pressure zone are called westerly winds. These winds curve to the east because of the Coriolis effect.

What is in the underwater Twilight Zone?

The Twilight zone is a zone underwater that is beneath the Sunlight zone. It has more water pressure than the sunlight zone ,the surface of the ocean, and has less light.

What common term refers to the movement of air from a high pressure zone to a low pressure zone?

Air flows along the pressure gradient between high and low pressure, and this is known as the pressure gradient force(PGF). The PGF is the primary driver of wind.

Explain the relationship between differences in the atmospheric pressure and wind speed?

Wind speed is how fast wind goes and atmospheric pressure is the pressure that the atmosphere pushes on us. ---------------------------------------------------- The greater the difference in barometric pressure from a high pressure zone to a low pressure zone, the greater the wind velocity will be.

How do you repair the fuel gauge in a 1989 ford bronco II xlt?

Your best bet would be to go to oreillys or auto zone and get a small gas gauge and unhook the wires from the gauge in your dash and run it to the side and put it by the pillar... I did the same with my temp gauge and it did fine, although if you want it to light up run a power and ground from the stock gauge too and you'll be good to go.
