Fuel guage on a 1998 honda accord

After I installed a new battery in my Accord, the fuel guage needle doesn't show the tank being completely full on filling up. The guage seems to work fine from 3/4 tank to empty.

Any suggestions on how to recalibrate it?

This is not a calibration issue, the sender in the fuel tank is the problem, this is a common symtom for senders when they fail

Please tell me where the fuel pump 2014 honda accord is located?Under the rear seat or at the trunk?because I climbed an object which hit the tank really hard now my guage isnt reading correctly


There is an access port under the back seat to get to the pump assembly in the fuel tank. Most manufacturers store the tank there for safety.

1991 honda accord starts intermittently. When it doesn't the gas guage goes below E. Gets spark, no fuel. Already changed main relay.


Hey man if you already changed out the relay i would try changing your fuel pump and sending unit that should stop both of your problems.

Where is the fuel flter for a 1998 honda accord 4 cylinder -show pic


All in-tank fuel pumps have a sock filter, but that filter usually doesn't need replacing. There should be an in line filter on your car. If you don't see it under the hood, it is probably in the fuel line close to the tank. Just trace the fuel line out of tank and going to the front, you will probably find it. I recall some Hondas that the owner said was missing an in-line filter. The fix for that was to cut the line in a handy place and install an in-line filter.

How do i repair the gas gauge on 1991 honda accord ex. it shows full to 3/4 tank regardless of how much is in there


The problem is in the float mechanism in the tank which is also connected to the fuel pump. You must drop the tank and remove the pump and mechanism then replace the sending unit and float assy

1998 honda ground wire connection


the starter has one 4 guage wire but this is positive coming from the battery and the ground wire is connected to any part of the engine so the best way or the best thing you can do is follow the ground wire from your battery (black) and see if is connected to the engine some carts they do have one ground wire connected to the bolts holding the starter to the engine also make sure you have connected the positive wire to the starter

If you remove the sending unit in the gas tank, move it manually by hand as u saw done earlier, the gauge on the dash should also move. As long as the sending unit in the tank isn't 'stuck' at the half full level, the gauge should register empty to full as it moves. To be honest, I'm not sure if I would bother taking the sending unit out. 1st, u must be very careful not to blow yourself up when working on the gas tank (no sparks, etc), all u really need to do is fill up your car, see how many miles a tank of gas will go (carry a can of gas with u to see how many miles before u run out). If it's 350 miles, just set the trip gauge to zero every time u fill up, and get gas every 300 miles so u don't run out. If the sending unit moves freely, everything (wiring ) is connected properly, then it probably is the fuel gauge. good luck!
