Sounds like a sending unit on the pump but to replace it you will have to buy a new fuel pump. I hope that helps you out.

My 2004 chevy classic cuts out sometimes while driving down the highway, does not do this when I press on the gas, also idles rough especially while in drive

If your car has over 100K on it, you will need to go and have it tuned up and the throttle body cleaned and spark plugs changed, my 2004 acted like this and I did the tune-up and it solved my problem.

1970 Ford F100 Gas Gauge Not Working

It may be the sending unit in the tank that needs replacing. Here's how you can check: Turn the key on and disconnect the sender unit at the gas tank. Ground the sender unit's wire with a jumper wire from the truck's harness to ground. Watch the gauge. If the gauge on the dash is good, grounding the sender wire will cause the gauge needle to react and should move to full. This would indicate a new sending unit is required. If the gauge doesn't move when the sender unit is grounded, the gauge is bad and needs replacing. Pull the instrument cluster out to replace the gas gauge. Likely any old ford gas gauge might work-back then, there were not so many production changes.

Gas hand not working how do i fix it 1999 malibu

Check fuses for instrument panel. May have to disassemble the gauge instrument cluster and check the connections to it in the back. Otherwise, the sending unit in the gas tank may be bad, or wiring to it.

2004 chevy classic malibu idle fluctuates with a/c on. While it fluctuates, the light on the a/c button turns on and off. Any idea what this could be?

A poor electrical connection in the circuit to the A/C pump. A lot of times it is a simple splice needed near the pump. As the lines on gas (freon or any other) when compressed, get hot. It's easy to accidentally let one of those wires hit a "hot" spot during other activity, under the hood. CHeck that the connection on the compressor (or if 2 connections) are clean, & secured.

Had a 1/4 tank of gas in car but low fuel light stays on, put 5 more gallons of gas in the car and light will not go off, gas hand will not move and car will not crank 2001 Chevy Malibu

check the connection for the fuel pump at the right rear wheel just above the control arm. the connection gets corroded and causes the fuel pump and gauge not to work. if the plug looks good then most likely the fuel fump assembly is bad.

Hi, you may have it flooded. Try holding the accelerator all the way down while cranking the engine to clear the gas out. Let us know if this doesn't work, and thanks for using FixYa.

When i fill up my gas tank, my gage reads empty and check engine light comes on, what do i do?

Sounds like you have a bad wiring problem with the gas tank sending unit, or a short in your dash board.

Your vehicle should still be under warranty take it to a GM dealer to have it checked out.

Btw, I’m available to help over the phone in case u need at
