SOURCE: 2005 Nissan Xterra gas gauge reads empty when full of gas.

Sending unit died. can be expencive to replace since most sending units are integral with the fuel pump now. lots of labor too. Better to use the trip odometer till you can afford a day without your car and a $600.00 +labor repair bill.

SOURCE: Nissan sentra fuel problem

I believe this is a manual fuel pump and you may have lost the prime, no fuel in hose to tank. If the hose from rear frame to tank has a break or hole, it will **** air and not fuel from tank. If this is not the case, possible clogged fuel hose, tubing, or pickup tube in tank assuming you have turned the engine over serveral times and there is enough fuel in tank. Some tanks do not pickup from very bottom because of water laying in bottom of tank from condensation.

It sounds like the float on the sending unit is sinking. Don't know what the float is made of, but over time, it will soak up gas and start to get heavy. This would cause your problem. I don't think it's the gauge, but if you want to test it, disconnect the wires at the tank. The gauge will either go to full or empty. If you ground the sending wire, the gauge should respond the opposite way it was. good luck

How to drain my 2006 Dodge Durango fuel tank

If the pump will still run, you can open a fuel line, maybe use hose on line to aim down into a container and drain that way. Don't take any lines loose unless your sure no pressure on the system. Sometimes you can get under vehicle remove fill hose from gas tank, then use a siphon hose in the gas tank. Your local auto store probably has a plastic siphon hose, that has a squeeze bulb on it to create a siphon, so you don't have to use your mouth. I don't know if that will reach down the fill tube? In my younger years, they called a siphon hose an okla credit card. I'm almost 70 now, don't like getting gas in my

Where can I find the gas tank hole to drain my gas out and can I PLEASE have an idea where I should be looking.

If your replacing the fuel pump, you don't need to drain it. You access the pump from under the back seat. There's no drain. Once you get the pump out, you can siphon it out. Have plenty of rags handy taking out the pump. You will spill some gas.

Did you run the car?
Instead of siphoning, look for a drain, and be sure to flush all of that gasoline out of lines from the tank to the injectors!

I put five gallons of desil in my tank how do i locate and disconnect fuel line from fuel injector to drain/

You can disconect the fuel line under the vehicle at the fuel filter but your best option is to syphon the gas tank and get as much diesel out as possible. Then fill it up with gasoline. Having a little diesel in a gas system will not hurt anything.

How to get gas out of a 1995 dodge?

If the point you disconnect the pipe from the motor is higher than the top of the gas tank you will not have a leak.
If you still want to drain the tank, you can get a hand siphon pump from a hardware or big box store and use it to siphon the gas out through the gas tank inlet. Drain into a certified gas can. No smoking.
