SOURCE: 1966 Ford Mustang Gas Guage not working

I had a similar problem. In my 1966 Mustang gas tank, the fuel pick-up was on a "float." My float developed a hole, filled with gasoline, and sank to the bottom of the tank, therefore, the gauge always read empty, but the car ran well. All the other gauges of course worked correctly. The repair was a relatively simple soldering job (after removing the float from the tank), but if that is indeed the problem, ensure all the gasoline is drained from the float before beginning the soldering job.

SOURCE: dual tank no fuel/1989 F250

The metal fuel line on top of my 89 Ranger fuel tank rusted out. What a pain. For all the trouble of dropping the tank and wrestling with the fuel assembly, definately put in new stuff, don't try to fix anything with jb weld like I did. It's a shame the body bolts are such a bear, or I'd say to try to remove the bed for a good look-see. After all was said and done, I cut a trouble door in my bed so I could replace the filler hose if I ever get one. Just don't do any cutting while the fuel tank is there, even with a saw or grinder, they all spark!

SOURCE: fuel gauge quit working. stuck on half a tank.

the fuel level sending unit has been incorporated into the fuel pump assembly.
the fuel pump is most likely your problem, these pumps dont like fuel additives so be careful.
most common problem with these fuel gauges is the sending unit, the sender contacts will errode over time fuel additives seem to speed the process.

replace the fuel pump assembly

hope this helps

SOURCE: 1988 f250 no power at fuel pump ,no fuel press.

Behind the air cleaner box, there are two relays. Over time they corrode and get stuck...change them out and see if that improves the situation.

Wes, try checking your float in your tank, or check the sending unit.

Just changed fuel pump on 2005 f250 4x4 and fuel gauge moves up tom 1/8 tank and reads low fuel on full tank, why is my fuel gauge not working correctly


The fuel sending unit rod was bent during the instalation giving you the false readings. This is the thin metal rod that attaches the float to the sender.

Fuel gauge doesnt work but all the other gauges work


trace the wire for the fuel gauge. the connection could be bad, or you may need to replace the sending unit. there is a float and it measures the resistance. you can check that which requires removing the tank, and see on an ohm meter when you lift up and down the float the numbers change on the meter. if it does then its a wiring issue

Fuel guage fluctuates truck seems to lack fuel and sputters


you may have a bad fuel pump or a bad injection pump,here are picture of the two, as far as the gauge you may have a bad fuel sending unit, this is in the tank and work like a toilet float and sends a signal to the gauge, the injection pump and fuel pump are located on top of motor you would need to have the preasure checked on both before just replace them hope this is helpful.31a2121.jpg22edc2f.jpg

Fuel guage-1991 ford aerostar


2 things.
There is a sensor that goes from the dash to the fuel pump. If it is disconnected, dirty, or faulty, then thats an easy fix.
There is also a float in the gas tank itself. From what Ive been told after time, or going over big speed bumps, etc, that the float just simply doesnt float or register.
Mine actually shows I have a full tank or im empty at all times. No in between.
