The w202 has a problem with the needle sticking before spending a fortune removing tanks ect remove the clocks and speedo remove steering wheel remember to take off battery as your srs light will need reseting (more money ) remove the panel under the steering wheel and push out the cluster at the back there is a harness looks a bit like a scart lead on a dvd player take this off and remove cluster with a small screw driver remove the locking tabs and remove the front glass the needle sticks by bulding up a static charge and basically turning the needle into a magnet making it stick get a small sharp knife and scrap the paint of the small pin wich the needle sits on do this with all the needles as it will start doing it with them all then just fit every thing in reverse this should solve the problem mine did this and it drove me nuts but this seamed to solve the problem before taking it all to bits try smacking the dash on the side near the fuel Gage it might unstick it hope this makes sence good luck

88 mustang fuel only works for the top half of the guage?


The most likely problem is the fuel level sending unit in the fuel tank. It is a rheostat that is hooked up to a float in the tank. When the tank is kept at 1/2 tank or less than the rheostat stays at that spot and makes a open in the circut. When the circut is open or the resistance is low the guage goes towards full. When she fills it up the float rises to a spot on the rheostat that is not warn yet and works. The fix is to replace the fuel level sending unit in the tank or use the trip odometer to log how far she has gone on a full tank.

Problem with fuel guage on my 1994 Mercedez Benz C180


There is no gauge in the fuel tank, the fuel sending unit is, that sends the signal to the fuel gauge in the dash to show how much is in the tank. Apparently, the sending unit is shot.

Hi Ade

Its normal for the temperature gauge to be at almost half when the engine is warm. If it rise above the half then you have cause for concern or if it is well below half when your car is really warm, then you may want to check it out as well.
