Sending units get knocked out of calibration when they change the pump.(carelessly).if you can.. check the top of the tank, to see if they plugged it in firmly. if not, raise heck till the change it. (doubt they will). other than the wires, not much you can do, without dropping the tank.

My gas gauge stopped working,says it's full,I go to put gas in it and can't get gas into tank ,it wants to come out,but knowing it's empty,was wandering if it needs a new sensor?


Putting gas has nothing to do with you fuel gauge problem
Must problems to add fuel and comes out can be cause by air flow in the tank, also it is recommended to fuel with the engine turn off so the pressure from fuel pump going back to the tank will not affect the fueling , about you fuel gauge not working properly can be cause by a electrical problem such wiring or defective gauge or can be fuel sender problem with most the time it is install on fuel pump assy.

Burping noise from gas cap, and fuel irregularity once below 1/4 tank


theres two plugs on the fuel pump. one is for pump and one is for gauge if you take pump out of tank and put a volt meter on the two outer prongs in plug then the two inner two of them will read the same when yoou move the level up and down and when you put meter on other two it will change when you move level or the level part of pump isnt working correctly. my old tahoe did that and when it would get to a 1/4 of a tank i knew it was almost out of gas.

HOW DO I FIX MY GAS GAUGE?


If it isn't registering at all, then I'd first check the operation of the sender unit in the fuel tank.

A stepper fan? I'm not sure I know what you're talking about there.

2004 nissan sentra have problem pumping gas


When you're pumping gas, does it stop you at the end, when the tank is nearly full, or is it not letting you pump gas at all? And how does the fuel gauge read after you've added gas? If it stops you and it still says the tank isn't full, it could just be that the float in your tank that connects to the gauge is wrong.

Is there a relay for the gas gauge on a 1995 ford contour


Normally no. The fuel gauge reads by resistance, the position of the float in the fuel tank, that voltage is directly sent to the gauge. There is also usually a warning light that operates off of this same system but it reports when the float level is extremely low only.

If the gauge isn't working, you may want to inspect the wiring harness at the fuel tank to make sure everything is intact, nothing frayed, pulled loose, or broken under there. If the pump has been replaced, sometimes the fuel float gets into a bind when installed improperly.

Usually the only other thing that has an impact on the fuel gauge is the ground circuit to the dash display.

Good luck !

2001 jimmy fuel sending unit


if you take the time to drop the fuel tank you might as well replace the fuel pump module. this will come with a new fuel pump and level sending unit. DO NOT USE AN AIRTEX brand. they will leave you with more problems! Get an a/c delco or delphi pump. make sure to replace the fuel filter at the same time.

Buzzing noise coming from fuel tank


it is the electric fuel pump you hear it should not be heard but sometimes before they fail they make noise drive it until it wont start up when that happens its time to replace it must drop fuel tank to do it and it costs about 150 dollars for part. could go for some time before failing.
