Question about 2005 GMC Yukon Xl Denali

1 Answer

When I pump fuel into my 2005 Yukon fuel tank, the fuel shuts off about 3/4 full and will not accept any more fuel. The fuel gauge shows 3/4 full and the instrument display indicates 365 miles till emply. When I was able to fill the tank the guage would indicate full and the instrument display would show 425 miles till emply.

Gas tank will not fill up on 2001 ford expedition


Gas as in gasoline or gas as in LPG gas? If its petrol, the fuel sender may be out of adjustment. (Usually means a new sender) If its LPG, the fuel stations are set to automatically shut off at 80% full. The gas tank will never actually be full to the brim but the gauge should be showing full if the gas nozzle keeps shutting off. Have a look on the LPG tank itself, they have a little gauge on them which shows how full it is. I have 2 tanks on my car , when "full" or when the pump shuts down, the tank gauges show just under full but the gauge on the cars dash shows full (2005 BA Ford)

I have Nissan patrol super safari mod.2005, problem with fuel gauge main tank showing maximum spare tank minimum please help


if you have 2 fuel gauges working of a tank switch there may be some resistance in the circuit of the second circuit that increases the reading of the gauge. Personally I have the tanks balanced out with a levelling hose between them the the gauge reads the capacity left in the tanks IE full-- both tanks-- full, 1/2 both tanks 1/2 With the way you have it set up then if one gauge is faulty and shows full when it is empty you can find yourself in a spot of bother when you need the other tank

My fuel needle showe quarter and my ibiza 2006 shut off need more 5 liters


Fuel gauges are never precision instruments, but you can fix this to show at least empty when it's empty.
If you can't access the top of the fuel tank you need to drain and then remove the fuel tank and take out the fuel sender unit. Otherwise just remove the sender unit from the tank.
Hold the wire with the float on it firmly and bend the wire to raise the float slightly.
Replace the float and check the fuel gauge reading. Repeat the procedure until the gauge gives an acceptable reading.
That should stop you from running out of go juice before the gauge hits zero, but you might not have a completely full reading when you fill up. Live with it..

you may want to check the wires that plug in to the sending unit on the fuel pump, one or more might be disconnected or wired incorrectly. Hope this helps.

Low fuel light comes on at idle. Yes, there is a 3/4 to full tank. Idles fine at stops and has excelleration.


Hi, A common problem with these trucks is the sending unit mounted on the fuel pump in the tank. The sending unit is a variable resister which tells the gauge how much fuel is in the tank. this resister is not made very well, my sending unit failed after 5 years. I waited till my fuel pump failed(2 years later) replaced the pump now my gauge works great.

I have a 2005 Yukon 125K miles - fuel guage


what's happening, is the level sensor in the fuel tank is getting worn out, and it thinks it's out of fuel when you actually still 1/2 to 1/4 of a tank left. The only way to rectify this is to put a new fuel pump in, as it is only available as an entire unit. If you can live with it, it'll probably last quite some time, but if not, you'll have to look at a pump assembly. Hope you get it situated soon! Feel free to reply back if you have other questions

2005 Pontiac Vibe Fuel Gauge stuck


The fix, unfortunately, is inside the fuel tank. You have to have the unit replaced. It's pretty maddening that something like that wouldn't even last 5 years. I have a 63 chev 1/2 ton that the gauge still works, and to my knowledge has never been touched.

If I have less than 1/4 tank of gas my yukon won't start.


I had the same problem. I had a few different mechanics tell me that the fuel pump is starting to go out when it does that. The fuel pump is located in the fuel tank, and the gasoline keeps the pump cool and lubricated. When the fuel tank is less than a 1/4 full, the pump is not submerged anymore, and can have trouble sending gas to the engine. My emergency fix was to get underneath the car on the driver's side and bang on the gas tank about three times. It will start up, and will run great unless you turn your engine off. But eventually you're going to need a new fuel pump. Once I replaced it, the problem went away.
