Question about 2004 Mitsubishi Diamante

1 Answer

Fuel gauge doesn't work

It reads full when completely full but drops below empty about 10k and stays there until next fill up. The trip computer still gives an accurate litres used and the low fuel light is still accurate. Will this be a easy fix?

Mine did the same thing 2 years ago. i assume it is probably the fuel gauge sending unit in the fuel tank so i priced a new one. as i remember it was about 350.00 for just the part. my computer reads in gallons and is still accurate as to telling me how much fuel i have used so when i use 10 to 12 gallons out of the tank i fill it again. so far i have had no problem doing it like that. just don't run out of fuel because that is really bad for fuel pumps. mine has a 14 gallon tank so i make sure that i never go below 12 gallons used. i usually try to fill at 10 gallons used

Fuel gage showing half a tank but trip computer only registering 60 miles left


Its very simple. If the gauge is showing half full then fill the tank and see how much fuel it takes. If the amount you add is approximately 50 percent of the fuel tank capacity then you know the fuel gauge is accurate . In that case the computer is giving an inaccurate reading and should be ignored. All you need is an accurate fuel gauge - it does not matter a row of beans what the computer says if the fuel gauge is reading correctly.

I have the same vehicle and my car actually was full of gas, registered empty & left me on the side of the road..It was the sensor in the fuel line that had to be replaced.

I have a 2003 GMC Envoy and my gas gauge has been flowing up and down to empty and full recently it has stayed on empty. How do I fix it?


Ensure that all of the wire connections are clean, secure and corrosion-free.

  • 2 Check your fuel gauge fuse if the gauge's indicator stays on empty when your turn on the ignition. If the fuse is good, join the sending unit connector to ground. Replace the sending unit if the gauge indictor moves to the full line.
  • 3 Ground the terminal located on the back of the fuel gauge with a jumper wire if the indicator doesn't move. If it does move, consider replacing the wire between the fuel gauge and the sending unit. A poor ground is frequently responsible for fuel gauge problems.
  • 4 Release the wire that connects to the fuel tank's sending unit. Confirm that there's no worn insulation that would permit wire contact to the body or frame. A fuel gauge reading of full generally indicates a problem with the tank unit, not the wiring.

    My gas guage stays on empty and the tank is full


    Sounds like your senor in the gas tank it self is bad. Most cars have a float that read out how full the tank is and when it goes out it will stay stuck showing you on the dash that your tank is empty even though it is full.

    I have a 2004 pontiac montana. for about two years the fuel guage would fold over and read 125 degrees when the tank is full. it woulld stay there until tank was empty and the needle would drop to empty,...


    It could be a bad fuel gauge in the dash unit, but....
    Usually it's "The bad".
    The fuel level sending wipe arm and windings on the fuel sender wear and send erratic readings.The only cure is a replacement fuel gauge sender.
    The check engine light should not be related to the erratic fuel readings.
    "The good".
    If you have over 200,000kms or 120,000 miles on your van you need a new fuel pump anyway,so have a complete assembly put in which will have a new fuel sender on it.
