Question about 1989 Dodge Omni

Fuel gauge doesn't work on a 1989 dodge omni

We just bought the omni from a older couple. His grandson replaced the fuel pump and now the fuel gauge doesn't work. He says that the gauge worked before the pump replacement. I'm thinking that the grandson did something to the sending unit while he was changing out the fuel pump. My question is what can I do to troubleshoot it to make sure its the sending unit and not something else wrong with the fuel gauge system. I don't want to go and buy a sending unit and that not be the problem

Hi

Sounds like he forgot to reconnect the wires ?

Check this first, if they are OK, bridge them, and the fuel gage should read full.
If this is so, you can get a new tank unit.

Expect he has left the wires off !

Good Luck !

a FixYa rating would be appreciated Please !

Could it be the fuel pump?


Thanks YellowFury, it might be, will check the fuel pressure and since the fuel pump may not have ever been replaced, may need a new one. Checking the computer tonight, finally bought the truck and had it brought it home on a trailer, didn't want to risk it breaking down. Sometimes computers will cause the vehicle to stop, however, computers don't usually allow the vehicle to start up again. Didn't find any vacuum leaks and it doesn't overheat at all, will keep checking. Thanks again for your suggestion.

Hello, I just purchased a used 1989 Jeep Wrangler and the instrument panel doesn't work (speedometer, fuel gauge, etc). Is the remedy something I could do myself? And what would the remedy be?


on the older jeeps the gauge cluster with the fuel gauge, clock and temp cauge is controled ny a riboin cable on the back. when i got mine theis didnt work either, the cable was dirty. its real easy to take them out all you will need is a phillips screw driver and a q tip and some rubbing alchole. clean it up and see if that does it.

Hey my omni wont start at the moment. we replaced the distributor cap and rotor and its not the map sensor what else could the problem be please help


If the car has current in the plugs and gas coming to the cylinders then it damn well start. Is the car being cranked? if yes, the battery is fine. Check the current in the plugs. The spark should be blue. The fuel pump working?

1989 Dodge Omni Stalls out


A sparkplug wire may have been loosesed or disconnected or damaged.
If you can't find it then wait until late evening when it's dark.

Open hood and start the car. You will see the sparks from the damaged/loose sparkplug cable. Don't touch it while ignition is ON. It will shock you!

If you "disconnected" any sparkplug wires when you replaced the oil pump, then they were not put back in the proper firing order.

Hope this helps!

Car hard to crank and stalling


Hi

Expensive part to fit, as a guess.!

Have an exhaust gas tested first, this will confirm that the cat converter is shot or not !

Sounds more like a sensor problem to me .

Good Luck !

A FixYa rating would be nice Please !

1990 Dodge Omni. Runs but shuts down


Check to see that you have good(bright orange) spark to the spark plugs the next time it dies... if not odds are its the coil. If spark is good check fuel pressure, since the pump was replaced if pressure is bad the fuel pressure regulator would be in question.
