The problem is most certainly the fuel level sending unit - not the fuel pump. However the mechanic was right in a sense that if you're going to pay the labor cost to drain and purge the gas tank to replace the sending unit you might as well replace the pump at the same time, since you have to take it off to get to the real problem.

Use your odometer.

If you are a DIYer check eBay for a Fuel Sending Unit... Part attached to the fuel pump. I am currently troubleshooting this problem on my 99. Looks like my pump is bad as the pressure is only 36psi at the rail

GUEL GAUGE DOESN'T WORK ON 98 HONDA PASSPORT


If you meant fuel guage, most likely the sender unit inside the tank has a problem. To test, find the wire going to the sender and ground the wire briefly to see if guage needle goes up. If so, replace sender.

Most gauges work ok but the sender unit in the tank is what causes most problems. I would be looking for a broken/loose wire to the sender or a faulty sender unit

My 2002 grand prix gt gas gauge doesnt always read properly, when i fill it up reads right, but always says full rare times while driving it will read correct, and after driving i put in park, and let idle...


replace the gas tank unit. 99 percent of the problems of this type require the tank unit to be replaced. it is a flaw with the GM cars, that GM refuses to have a recall on.

Dash gas gage shows empty car runs fine previous owner put new fuel pump in it


Sounds like the fuel tank sender unit is faulty; keep in midn that the Passport fuel gauges can be calibrated, and won't work properly when out of calibration. Your local Honda dealer has the tools to calibrate the sending unit/fuel gauge assembly. That's the first thing to try, after that if there is still a problem you may have an issue with the sending unit itself or the fuel gauge on the dash.

Hope this helps (remember to rate and comment this answer).

I need a diagram of how to put transmission in 98 honda passport


If you have an automatic transmission, you should take it to a mechanic or at least purchase the special fluid temperature gauge needed to do it right. You add fluid through the overfill screw opening found on the transmission fluid pan (there is no dipstick or underhood component on the 96' and later models). It should be located in one corner of the pan; there's also a drain plug is more toward the middle. Never open the overfill screw with the engine stopped - it should always be running and warm.

For a manual transmission, the fill plug is also on the pan, but it is located on the side.

Again I say: beg, borrow, buy, or steal a temperature gauge if you have an automatic. Add the new fluid with a small pump or syringe only when the gauge reads between 90 and 135 degrees F.

For a manual transmission, the fill plug is also on the pan, but it is located on the side.

99 passport 4x4 tranny question


There is not a dipstick for the automatic transmission on the 1999 Honda Passport. There are two plugs on the bottom of the transmission - the lowest one is the drain plug and the one located higher is the overfill plug. You should have a fluid temperature gauge as it is recommended that the temperature be between 90* F and 135* F when checking fluid level. (I believe you can order from dealer - I have also heard that running the engine for 10-15 min will put you near the proper temperature - to be certain, the temperature gauge is the right way to do it.) Run engine for a few minutes to reach optimum temperature. The vehicle must be on level ground and at idle to properly check fluid level. With proper temperature reached - and engine running at idle - set parking brake - remove the fill plug and add fluid with a syringe or small pump until it just starts to run out of the opening. Do not open the overfill screw with the engine stopped. Replace the fill plug and shift through gears - then remove and repeat one time to achieve proper level.

99 honda passport


your sending unit in the gas tank is bad. You most likely already priced a new one that you can only get with a fuel pump. {around 275-300 dolllars}. I found the sending unit by itself on ebay for around 40 dollars. Just go to ebay and type in 98 99 00 01 02 rodeo passport fuel sending unit and that should take you to the guy I'm getting mine from.
