Mine did this too... Bought a new fuel sensor for 50 bucks and it's perfect now... if you don't want to spend the cash take your tank off take out you gage and check the floater and all the connections... could have just gummed up or disconnected

Gas guage doen't work


HI,
It's probably WATER coming out of the exhaust as that's the result of the engine running...not a problem.

Gas gauge is separate from the pump....usually. It could be a fuse (look in the Owner's Manual for fuse location) or the fuel 'sender' which is what measures the fuel level. This is usually IN the fuel tank. Sorry I don't know where it is on your Rodeo..

Search online - Google it - for fuel sender. Remember, your Rodeo is the same as the Honda Passport for the '94-2002 model years so search under the Passport too.

GL,
TD

ENVOY FUEL GUAGE PROBLEMS--- GAS GAUGE DOES NOT REGISTER ON FILL UP--- CHECK ENGINE LIGHT COMES ON WHEN YOU FILL UP -----THEN GOES OUT AFTER 1ST. 20 TO 40 MILES. BEN GOING ON FOR LONG TIME ONLY WORRY WHEN...


GMC sent me a letter saying that gas guage not working has been a problem and they will fix and pay half.
Also my mechanic says that it is common to get a check engine lite when you add gas to tank, especially when you fill it. Sometimes I will take off gas cap and let air out then replace cap and the check engine lite will go off. (usually). Nothing to worry about.

The gas guage and temperature guage in my 02 cavalier are not working properly. half of the time the temp guage stays below 40 and will not go up and when i fill up the car and start it the gas guage will...


Hi, take the connector off the temp sensor, turn the key on, and have someone watch the gauge while you insert a paperclip to short the terminals together inside the connector. If the gauge goes from one extreme to the other when the terminals are connected, the cluster is probably OK. It may just be that both sensors are bad.

2000 Isuzu Rodeo - the fuel light comes on but it is full of gas - is the sendding unit bad or what might be the problem


yes the fuel sending unit will need replacing, faulty fuel sender unit will give the guage inaccurate reading.

Check engine light comes on after refueling the vhicle. gauge doesn't read full, then it will. light goes out after a day or two.


Also, be sure to not over-fill the gas tank. When filling the tank, when it sounds full (you can hear gas gush up the filler neck) and when the filler clicks off the first time...don't be tempted to keep clicking more gas into the tank because over-filling can cause a variety of problems (including setting the light) and can eventually saturate/ruin the fuel vapor canisters.

Smog test will not pass


This code is send (in your case NOT SEND)
by the fuel sending unit.

Does your fuel gauge give incorrect of jumpy reading when it's full?

The quick fix is STOP TOPPING OFF the fuel tank when you are get gas.

Keep topping off will push the fuel tank float off it's sensor limit and eventually short or send OUT OF RANGE reading to the fuel gauge.

Fill your truck up to 3/4 tank full.

Drive it for 2-3 days or about 100 miles.
(this will fill the ready-ness data that DMV want)

If there is NO check engine light ON during the 2-3 days then give the smog test another shot.

DO NOT add fuel unit you complete the smog test.
===

The CORRECT method to fix your problem is to drop the gas tank and replace the fuel sending unit.

If you truck has over 140,000 miles on it then I will recommend you the change the WHOLE integrated fuel pump/fuel sending unit and fuel filter at the same time.
