1996 Plymouth Grand Voyager Fuel Gage issue

My fuel gage only seems to work between half and full. When the fuel gage reads half a tank it is empty, when it reads 3/4 it is really only 1/4. When the gage reads full I have between 1/2 tank to full. Is there an adjustment that can be made? It seems to work properly. the E is shifted to 1/2. Hope you can help.

Sounds like a sending unit, but check grounds and connectors for corrosion. The sending unit is in the fuel tank, and can be costly, also you need to work safe practices. Try just setting the trip meter when you fill up and run the number of miles that would normally leave you with 1/4 of a tank. draw back always fill up. it is a lot cheaper than the repair, they want over $250 for one in my dodge dakota

It sounds like the fuel level sending unit located on the fuel pump is malfunctioning. The solution for this is to have it replaced. You can do this yourself but I wouldn't recommend it as the vehicle needs to be lifted and the fuel tank needs to be dropped out. This can be preformed for about 100-150 in most shops.

Where is the fuel pressure regulator on 1996 Plymouth grand voyager

I looked at info for the 3.3L ohv engine.
My info shows it is located at the fuel pump assembly in the gas tank.

Have you looked for external leaks, under the vehicle, under the hood? You may be able to use fuel pressure gage, cycle the key to bring up fuel pressure, turn key off, see if pressure holds for a bit? Also, check evap system.

Is the fuel sensor on a 1998 voyager located in the fuel pump or a separate part in the fuel tank?

the "sensor" is actually just a long arm with a "floaty? on the end and gauges where in the tank the top of the fuel is located therefore giving you a read out on your dash. the sensor your talking about sounds like the low level readout sensor.this is located elsewhere and is simply asensor that reads the information of of the fuel pump and vocalizes low fuel warning. if you knowingly have fuel in your vehicle then your sensor may be shorting or or your dash gause has a short.

This problem is caused by only thing, it is a defective fuel level sending unit inside the fuel tank. To replace this part requires the fuel tank be removed from the vehicle.

Runs great til fuel tanks reaches half way mark then cuts out or dies

Are you sure the fuel gage is reading accurately most gages just use a resistor to gage how much fuel is in the tank over time its easy for the gage to read off could be running out of gas unless you know for sure it still has a half a tank?

Fuel guage not working

Testing the fuel gage requires accessing the harness from the fuel pump and grounding the yellow / white wire with 160 ohms resistance this should cause the gage to read full, and with the circuit open you should have the gage reading empty. If the gage works in this order then the likely failure is the sending unit in the tank , and will require replacement.
