Its probably because you had car running while filling up or you didn't tighten gas cap tight enough after fueling up. Here is what you do first tighten gas cap until it makes a click. Then disconnect your positive battery cable for ten(10) minutes and then reconnect. PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT IF YOU HAVE A CODED RADIO THAT YOU HAVE THE CODE FOR IT READY WHEN YOU RECONNECT BATTERY. Good LUCK contact if you need more help and Thanks for using FIX YA.

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

2000 CHEVY S-10 FULL TANK OF GAS ENGINE LIGHT COMES ON AT HALF TANK LIGHT GOES OUT WHY?


You may be overfilling the tank. The fuel tank is connected to a vapor recovery system. If you over fill it it will be drawn into the recovery system and kick the engine light on. By the time you have run a half a tank of fuel thru it, it has cleared. Try stopping the fuel fill when the nozzle kicks off and not trying to get that extra 2 dollars worth in it and see if the helps.

When the fuel gauge reaches half or less, the check engine light comes on and stays on until tank is re-filled. Also when filling the tank, the station gas pump shuts off about 5 gallons before tank is...


Hi! You definitely have a problem on the fuel float thats why the check engine light is coming out. Please replace the fuel float and you'll be good. HOpe this helps and have a good one!

My fuel guage got below a half tank at about 3/8


1999 fuel pumps are located within the gas tank on this model and use a float assembly to send fuel levels to the dash gauge. This is why you may notice that parked on a hill or with sudden stops you car shows a little more or less fuel and then settles. It shouldnt go up and down as drastic as you describe so that makes me feel that the sending unit on the fuel pump is going bad. It looks like a half circle of contacts and as the float arm goes up each contact causes a different reading.. think clock face and clock hands. Watch it carefully now that you have filled it up and note when it gets to same range you were in before. If you see same problem it could be a failure.. if not then its possible a piece of debrs wash causing an intermittent failure. Unfortunately on these models the fuel pump and replacemetn is a lengthy process. You must drain the tank, remove it from vehicle and remove pump. insert new one and then do a pressure check at engine block as these new pumps have to maintain about 90PSI pressure to the fuel delivery system. Its not a weekend DIY fix to do this repair and if you see the issue its best to leave this job to a dealer or reputable service facility.

Gas gage constantly says full when it's not!


Unfortunately this is most likely the fuel pump module, which includes the fuel level sensor also. This should be diagnosed more thoroughly with a scanner, a good scanner will be able to check instrument cluster separately to confirm the gage is working right,and check for trouble codes that may not light any warning lamps. Hope this helps. Rate me please.P.S. Dont use that fuel station any more.
