Some of those GM trucks have a problem with the stepper motor on the instrument cluster sticking. Its pretty simple to change them- a bit touchy tho. order them on amazon for about 3 bucks or take it to a mechanic and he'll put a new cluster in for 150-350 bucks. I just replaced the coolant gauge motor on my 04 Yukon. eureka its fixed.

Air blowing hot


Because your not using the proper a/c manifold
gauge set ,or the proper working procedure, to
be working on any a/c system.
You buy the store junk with a hose crimped on
& no way to get air out of the hose,now you let air in
& got 40# & not 28# on low side
You will need a knowledgable professional to recover
the refrigerant,repair the obvious leaks,or you wouldn't
be trying to add to the system in the first place
Your were trying to add,not recharge
Charging is done when the system is in a deep vacuum
& all the moisture removed.

Replaced fuel pump now fuel gauge isn't working


sending units get knocked out of calibration when they change the pump.(carelessly).if you can.. check the top of the tank, to see if they plugged it in firmly. if not, raise heck till the change it. (doubt they will). other than the wires, not much you can do, without dropping the tank.

HOW DO I FIX MY GAS GAUGE?


If it isn't registering at all, then I'd first check the operation of the sender unit in the fuel tank.

A stepper fan? I'm not sure I know what you're talking about there.

The PCM isn't something you can do anything with

Have you put a fuel pressure gauge on fuel rail shrader
valve to check pressure & volume ?

Have you Tested the TPS Sensor Voltage ?

Have you replaced front or upstream Oxygen Sensors
when you past 100,000 miles ?

Are Spark Plugs not over 3 years old & same for Gas Filter ?

Do you have Cylinder Misfires ?

Do you have a MIL Lamp lite on dash or stored codes ?

Is there a relay for the gas gauge on a 1995 ford contour


Normally no. The fuel gauge reads by resistance, the position of the float in the fuel tank, that voltage is directly sent to the gauge. There is also usually a warning light that operates off of this same system but it reports when the float level is extremely low only.

If the gauge isn't working, you may want to inspect the wiring harness at the fuel tank to make sure everything is intact, nothing frayed, pulled loose, or broken under there. If the pump has been replaced, sometimes the fuel float gets into a bind when installed improperly.

Usually the only other thing that has an impact on the fuel gauge is the ground circuit to the dash display.

Good luck !

Hello. My 1997 Chevy Tahoe refuses to start. The problems began with a bad fuel pump. I changed. It worked. The fuel pump died again. I changed it again and it has been working. I parked it for two weeks....


Now you have a good battery & a starter that turns over the motor

Have you cycled the key on & off with a fuel pressure gauge on the
fuel rail?

Do you have a fuel filter that isn't over 3 or 4 years old?

Have you checked for spark while cranking ? Use an old plug on the wires,
if you have ignition wires,don't ground the wire without resistance

If you removed the ducting & MAF Sensor it won't start

Tell us what you checked & exactly how that was done.
