Fuel gauge not working


If your Fuel gauge is not working you may need a new fuel sensor or floater that tells the amount of gas in the tank which that is located in the tank so you would have to remove your gas tank and replace it some sensors or floaters may also be on the fuel pump.

Hello i have a 04 chevy malibu 4 2.2 L . MY GAS NEEDLE JUMPS FROM E TO FULL AN WHEN I PUT GAS IN IT IT WONT CRANK UP. IT TAKES 5 MIN OR SO . PLEASE HELP DON'T HAVE NO MONEY TO WASTE ON THESE SHOP


1) Check the ohms reading from the sending unit. On the fuel pump there is a sending unit that sends the signal to the gauge for the level of fuel. On most cars you can get it separate from the fuel pump. Its either the sending unit that is messed up or the cluster.
2) As for the car not starting right away, go to link below:

Need to replace the sensor inside the gas tank. I have a 2008 Malibu with the same problem. It was a faulty fuel gauge sensor.

Had a 1/4 tank of gas in car but low fuel light stays on, put 5 more gallons of gas in the car and light will not go off, gas hand will not move and car will not crank 2001 Chevy Malibu


check the connection for the fuel pump at the right rear wheel just above the control arm. the connection gets corroded and causes the fuel pump and gauge not to work. if the plug looks good then most likely the fuel fump assembly is bad.

Gas gauge does not read well below half tank


More than likely a floater issue!! This is located within the gas tank and mounted to the fuel pump. It sends a unique signal depending on the amount of fuel within the tank determining fuel gauge readings. Its very possible the unit is defective causing improper gauge readings.

2005 Chevy Malibu the gas guage has stopped working. The guage will go from full to empty over and over. The gas cap light comes on and now my engine light is on constantly. How do I get this fixed for...


hey the reason your gas gauge is going from full to empty is that your fuel pump which is in the gas tank has a sensor that relays how much gas the tank has in it, the sensor is gone bad and will have to be replaced. And your engine light problem is probley due to putting gas in the car while it is running, my wife has a 2005 malibu and we have had the same problems with her car hope this was helpful

How can i fix a clogged fuel pump on a 2001 chevy malibu. the fuel pump is working ( you can hear it hum when you turn the key) I removed my back set to make sure and the car will turn over but wont start....


Have you changed the fuel filter? Did it die while driving, or just wouldn't start? Don't use starting fluid on a gas engine! It will cause a lot more problems than it solves. Ether, starting fluid is made for diesel engines... not gas, not ever. If it won't start, it isn't lacking ether. It's lacking gas, air or spark.
