1988 Pont. Bonn.3.8 replaced fuel pump relay and replaced blown fuse behind glove box still pump doesn't work. Gas gauge is pegged on full does this mean anything


Bad ground. It runs to the front of the car. You can cut it and ground it to the body. Make sure the battery to body ground is good also.

Gas gauge and tach do not read proper readings! What will cause this? The gas guage will peg past full when there is only quarter tank and tach reads 4500 RPM at idle


The gas tank sounds like a bad ground usually located under the car at the gas tank. I do not know but maybe they both tach and fuel gague get their ground from the same place.

Well, short of the gauge being defective, there might me a voltage regulator on the back of the instrument panel causing your issue.

1997 chevrolet truck-fuel gauge went past full wont move.


Most likely the fuel level sending unit is defective. I have also seen a faulty voltage regulator cause a fuel guage to peg out. (Go past full and not move). I don't know if it is the problem in this case, but it is something to consider. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Fuel gauge problem


sending unit on the fuel pump in the tank is stuck, and needs to be replaced. its expensive, but that will fix your issue. its the housing around the pump that has the float arm on it. you can try to free the float arm by removing your pump assembly, but cant guarantee its any good after being stuck

Pontiac 2003 Sunfire Gas Guage doesn't work


Your needle moving from empty to full and then back to empty indicates that it is trying to set itself (most cars do this each time they are started). So, yes, there seems to be a problem with the sending unit that feeds information to your gas guage. Prior to cracking open your fuel tank, you might try tracking the wires from the back of your guage as far as you can towards the tank. Then track the wires from your tank as far as you can toward the guage. Watch for damaged wires and/or loose connections as you go.
