You either have a bad sending unit, which iit is in the fuel pump assembly in the tank or a hole in the float and it fills with gas and sinks, which it's also on the fuel pump assembly in the tank or a bad fuel gauge in the instrument cluster. it's more than likely a sending unit problem, jeeps are bad about the sending unit to quit working

Town and Country Van running out of gas and guage says half a tank what could be the problem?


If your fuel gauge is showing you in accurate readings this is normal to all vehicles that are not used to fill-up gas full regularly but sometimes the cause of the inacuracy is due to faulty float valve in the gas tank you need to replace it

Fuel gauge is all over the place. After I fill up with gas, it goes to empty. Then it goes back & forth. Took it to a dealer, supposedly they fixed the problem. Next time I filled the tank, it went to...


i would take it back, you paid to fix that problem, they misdiaganosed it, it sounds like a bad fuel sending unit or a bad ground wire to that unit, also gm had a lot of problems with those clusters ( gauge unit), good luck.

Gas gauge shows empty after filling gas tank. Eventually the gas gauge will register the proper level.


The gauge circuit is shunted on most cars, this is wierd, but needed to stabilize the readings... Your description sounds like normal function. Drivers would complain if the qauge were to be instant, going around corners, starting, stopping, all move fuel, and the gauge would indicate this, cauing driver alarm...Been this way for ever, although yours sounds like it is on the far side of the scale...if it reads correctly after a while, you could replace everything and you would have the same performance.

Fuel gauge registers empty after fill up


It sounds to me like you have a short in your wiring harness at you fuel tank. there is a plug on top of your fuel tank that controls you fuel pump and your sending unit that tells you how much fuel is in the tank. This plug can be a real p.i.a to get to on some vehicles, you may have to take the vehicle to a shop to fix it, if you are not mechanically inclined.
