Gas gage is not working rite


The most common cause of a erratic or incorrect fuel gage reading is a defective fuel gage sending unit inside the fuel tank. To replace the sending unit requires that the fuel tank be removed from the car and then the fuel pump module which contains the sender be replaced.

Electrical problems - fuel gage pulsates with turn signal - fuel gage pigs to right when ignition is turned on and then recovers to normal position - shift control will slightly effect fuel gage - some...

Fuel gage stuck on full in my 1997 GMC Jimmy


Sounds like the float on the sending unit got stuck. This is a backyard tactic but... Try hitting the bottom of the gas tank with a hammer and see if it frees it up. Don't go and beat the hell out of it. A few decent whacks and it should come free. If not you'll need to have the fuel pump/sending unit replaced.

Where is the fuel pump on a 1997 gmc jimmy


The fuel pump is located on the top of the fuel tank in most models, and it necessitates removing the fuel tank completely for access. The average backyard mechanic can replace a fuel pump in a Jimmy in about an hour.

Fuel Guage registering improperly!


remove float assembly and reposition it facing the oposite direction. Sometimes the float installation positioning makes a difference on how the fuel gage reads.

97 jimmy fuel pump went out replaced pump ran for 2oomi


Sounds like you are not getting power to your fuel pump, test both ends of the supply line with a meter, andhave someone else to help you by operating the key, because the system will cycle on for a few seconds and then turn off,,,then you need to turn the key off and back on to get it to operate again.
