V40 2.0lt tcd (p reg) running out of petrol when gauge shows half

My car has broken down twice now due to the petrol running out even when the fuel gauge shows at least two bars and 100 miles left on the range meter! Would it be a stuck sender in the fuel tank?also it doesn't idol very well from start up, cuts out quite a bit.

please help :-)

Proton satria neo 007,fuel guage problem,it will show gas level and then suddelnly the guage will go down and stay there showing no gas and the petrol light dont even work


You need to determine if the sender is bad or the gauge is. If you can get to the signal wire at the fuel tank for the gauge (this goes inside tank to sender that provides a variable ground circuit) ground that wire briefly to see if dash gauge rises. If so, part inside tank is bad. If not, gauge or some part of its wiring circuit is bad.

1989 range rover not pumping petrol 3,9 runs on gas but will not pump petrol


Hi there, did you run the petrol low or out, the fuel pump will keep pumping while the key is on and if your running on gas them it's still running, I would say the fuel pump has failed due to no lubrication from fuel, be sure to keep your petrol tank at least at 1/4 of tank full

Hullo, I drive a 5 door 1.3ltr manual Ford Festiva. When the petrol tank is full the petrol reads full. When the petrol gauge reads around half full the petol gauge falls to zero. The petrol gauge will...


Your problem is the fuel gauge sending unit. It needs to be replaced. Another benefit of owning the durable festiva is the access panel under the back seat. You don't have to drop the tank to fix this problem.

Faulty Petrol Gauge


Hi there,
It could be 2 things:
1. the fule sender unit is faulty
2. one of the baffles inside the tank has come loose and is interfering with the float.
Either case you'll have to pull the float out to have a look. If you are doing it yourself, make sure youtake great care as you'll be dealing with fuel and this is a high risk work.
cheers.

Faulty petrol gauge


I had same problem with petrol gauge bouncing around all over the place, full tank, half a tank and nearly empty in the space of 10 miles.

I knew that if I filled the tank I would get approx 200 miles for half a tank so I did that for a while and just kept topping up. Audi testing it and the fuel sensors in the tank had to be replaced. I'm afraid its the only permanent solution!
