Most likley a sticking fuel sending unit in the tank, if it starts happening more consistantly you will have to replace the sending unit

2009 Cadillac Escalade ESV Issues ?!!!


Drop the gas tank and check for contamination/corrosion. You're going to have to do that to replace the fuel level sender anyway and check both the fuel pump (it's in the tank) and the primary filter on the pickup tube.

Gas gauge indicator goes to empty when full


sounds like you may have a bad fuel level sender problem. as for the check engine light coming on and storing a fault code that is a separate issue.

Town and Country Van running out of gas and guage says half a tank what could be the problem?


If your fuel gauge is showing you in accurate readings this is normal to all vehicles that are not used to fill-up gas full regularly but sometimes the cause of the inacuracy is due to faulty float valve in the gas tank you need to replace it

Starves for fuel, with half a tank of fuel and turning a corner


are you sure the gauge is accurate? next time you get fuel fill it up and check how many gallons it takes from half to full, cutting out on left turns happens when the gas in the tank moves away from the fuel pump screen, that only happens if you are near reserve.

03 jeep liberty gas gauge is sometime at empty and some time at full


This is a common problem with all cars, If you do a search on sulfur and fuel gauge problems you would find more info than I can tell you.

But basically you will need to replace the fuel sender in the tank to fix this problem.

The sender uses silver contacts and the sulfur is corrosive to it.

The sulfer in fuel changes thru the year and sometimes its extreme.

Gas gauge stays on full


very common. The sender in the gas tank is the problem.
It will need to be replaced some day
Both my gas tanks do the same thing in my F250. 1 tank stays full all the time and the other drops from full to about a half tank when I get to half a tank and then works so so till empty.

We just got a 1988 Porsche and filled with 1/2 tank, there was what seemed like overflow happening - Any idea what may be the problem.


fuel tank vent could be blocked by mud/pebbles etc, not letting the gas fumes escape while your adding fuel making it overflow, check underneath the car near the fuel tank .. something to start with..

Gas gauge malfunction and engine light stays on


This is a common problem with Malibu's. It is due to cheap metal in the fuel gage that corrodes. Chevrolet knows about this but they refuse to issue a fix. The check engine light staying on and the faulty fuel gage are related. This is a defect and they need to recall this part! Raise hell with the dealership!
