I recently did my chev s10 and they give you a new wire harness that you have to splice the wires and hook them up so it now has the same hook up. those wires are for your gauge as well as your pump. if your sending unit was not hooked up you would not go any where..take it back and demand this gets fixed.

My daughter has an 03 Hyundai Sonata and recently I replaced the fuel pump, timing belts, and the crankshaft position sensor. The same day the work was complete she took it to fill it up with gas and told...


You probably have a bad fuel relay switch. It is located in the engine compartment in the fuse box. It costs about ten bucks and takes 2 minutes to change. I hate to say it but you probably didn't need a new fuel pump. If the relay is not the problem then it will be your fuel pressure regulator about $60. This part will affect your fuel gauge and cause intermittent starts and stalls or a no start. If your car sits for awhile the pressure will fall off and the car will start again but will not run well and it can stall out at anytime and not re-start.

1997 blazer fuel gauge doesnt work i put a new fuel pump in and it still didnt work.... its pegged at full


Unplug the fuel pump, turn on the ignition and see if it goes to empty. Is this a 4 or 2 door blazer? If it is a 4 door this will be easy.

HI, MY FUEL GAUGE WORKS BUD ERRATIC, I MEAN IT DOESNT SHOW THE CORRECT AMOUNT OF GAS LEFT. WHAT COULD BE WRONG? THANKS.


In a case like this, the culpret is most likely the fuel level sending unit, which is located on the fuel pump in the fuel tank. In most vehicles, the pump and the sending unit all come in one assembly, which means in order to get a correct reading on the gauge, you'll need to replace the fuel pump. And actually, considering the fact that you have to drop the fuel tank and remove the pump anyway, it's just good measure to change them as a set.

I hope this helps! :)

If my 1997 Plymouth Neon needed a fuel filter or a fuel pump what kind of problems would my car have? The gas gauage only works half the time and when it doesnt work my car doesnt run, when put into gear...


Your symptoms sound like a fuel pump, not the filter. The gas gauge is controlled by a sending unit that is mounted on the pump in the tank. If the gauge is sometimes not working, chances are, neither is the pump, which would cause the car not to start. The pump not only provides fuel, but also pressurizes the fuel system for the injectors and throttle body. The fuel filter would cause poor mileage and hesitation when accelerating. A completely blocked filter would cause the car not to run, but your gas gauge would still work since it's reading the level of fuel in the tank, not whether it's coming through the line to the engine.

Car wont start,put 8 gallons of gas,new fuel filter and gas gauge still shows empty.checked fuses,fine.is thier a fuel reset button.


No, but if you put fuel and the gauge shows empty, then you have a loose connector near the gas tank. If car doesnt start, then it is for sure that the connector of the fuel pump is loose. Reconnect the fuel pump and you are gonna be fine.

My gas gauge doesnt work properly


Hi there... It all depends on what they replaced. If they replaced just the pump they may have damaged the variable resistor that sends the signal to your gauge or bent the float rod while installing the assembly back in your tank. if they replaced the whole assembly ( pump and float assembly) it could be the wrong one for your vehicle. Hope this helps you out

My 1999 Oldsmobile Alero Gas gauge and fuel system


well # 1 the full gauge when empty is a sign that your fuel pump is bad and that needs to be replaced the part about spitting the gas back out is probrobly a clog between the fuel door and the tank itself or their might be a vapor lock door that might be stuck shut so fuel cant get in im not 100%sure about that but im 100%sure that the fuel guage is the fuel pump being dead.
