Gas gauge the gas gauge bounces all over the place and doesnt read accurately, even when the truck is standing still. It jumps from full to empty regardless of how much gas is in the tank. I only know when to add gas when the low gas light comes on.

Sounds like you have a bare or broken wire earthing out on the chassis/body Trace the wires from the tank back to the engine bay and check that the wires are intact.

Gas gauge doesnt read gas amount


Gas gauge might need ajustment or re-placed. Won't hurt to get it checked out. Don't want to get stuck some where with no gas. Hope this helps.

My gas gauge is bouncing back and forth between full and empty and not giving an accurate reading


Check the ground for the sender. If it is a metal tank, make sure the grounding strap is in good condition. If it is a plastic tank, check that both wires are in good shape and make good connection with the sender unit.

Gas gauge always reads full, and then bounces from full to empty


This problem is only caused by one thing, and that is the gas gauge sending unit inside the gas tank is defective, it will need to be replaced to correct this. The gas tank must be removed from the truck to access the sender assembly.

Possibly a bad ground wire at the sender on the tank,

Check for that first before tearing into the dash to replace the guage.
