If you are a good mechanic, depending upon how disabled you are, roll under there and look. I personally have not seen one of these recently but it stands to reason that there is something holding up the tank. Don't forget to empty tank first to make it lighter to work with. Spray bolts with wd40 before attempting to remove them.

WHERE IS GAS SENDING UNIT LOCATED AND IS IT WORTH FIXING


the fuel sending unit's located on the side of your fuel pump,located inside the fuel tank,you did'nt specify what year,make,moel,or engine size.but the odds are that it's an 80's model or above. if so,then this is you. you can purchase a used fuel pump at a used parts place that will have the sending unit you need. but the question remains? is the used one good. rarely do they go bad,but they do sometimes.you would do well to purchase a new fuel pump,which the fuel sending unit will be new also. just to be sure.but,if your mechanically inclined and can drop the fuel tank yourself,then you may come out cheaper bu purchasing a used fuel pump.there is no fuse for the fuel guage.there is a fuse for the fuel pump,and also a fuel pump relay,but odds are you're fuel pump works or wlse the engine would'nt start.the issue is the fuel level,right? replace the fuel pump,either new,or used and this should repair the issue. the fuel tank will have to be removed to replace the pump,most garages charge according to how much fuels in the tank. a full tank of gas is super heavy,a low tank is light and easily dealt with under the car.suggest you shop around 1st for pricing.thank you very much for choosing fixya.com. and good luck in your repairs!!

How do you change the fuel sending unit on a Chevy Malibu? The unit is located, so I am told, on top of the fuel tank (not inside) where the fuel pump goes into fuel tank. Any idea how much would it cost...


The fuel "level" sending unit is located on the side of the fuel pump module, see red arrow on picture below. The fuel tank will need to be dropped and the fuel pump module removed in order to replace the fuel level sending unit. You can expect to pay a couple hours of labor to remove the tank and replace the level sending unit.

the fuel tank pressure sensor is located on top of the fuel pump module. The fuel tank will still need to be lowered to get at it but the fuel pump module does not need to be removed from the tank to replaced it.

Fuel tank


Check it with an ohm meter or a test light to see if it sends power to the rear tank and front tank like it should, it is easy to get to.

Humming from fuel tank


The fuel pump/sending unit will need replacing very soon. They are together as one unit. If you are mechanically inclined and have the tools, you can replace it yourself, otherwise find a qualified mechanic to do the job for you. There are times when the wires get corroded from water too and does not send the proper voltage to the pump. These things must be inspected to determine if you have to remove the tank to replace the fuel pump/sending unit.
