Gas gauge - Doodge Caravan 2000

When I fill full gas tank and run till 3/4 of tunk is still full, my gas gauge becomes crazy - it jumps down (like no gas at all), the "low fuel" indicator lights up and you can hear a signal of "low gas". After a second all returns to the regular state. And this behavior continues every few second / minutes until the gas tank is 1/4 full. I don't care a lot about fixing it, the only important thing to me - is to desaible the "low gas" sound, I am going crazy hearing it every few seconds or minutes :) Thanks a lot!

Gas tank will not fill up on 2001 ford expedition


Gas as in gasoline or gas as in LPG gas? If its petrol, the fuel sender may be out of adjustment. (Usually means a new sender) If its LPG, the fuel stations are set to automatically shut off at 80% full. The gas tank will never actually be full to the brim but the gauge should be showing full if the gas nozzle keeps shutting off. Have a look on the LPG tank itself, they have a little gauge on them which shows how full it is. I have 2 tanks on my car , when "full" or when the pump shuts down, the tank gauges show just under full but the gauge on the cars dash shows full (2005 BA Ford)

Why does my 2002 SC430 gas gauge needle not work when tank is full?


The sending unit in gas tank is broken - hence the wrong readings of how much gas is in the tank. Replace unit.

yeah sound like your fuel injectors are clogged...I would first change and the fuel filters and go to wal mart and buy "sea foam" fuel injector cleaner its in a white and red metal can this stuff is awesome!...and add it too a full tank of gas run the vehicle till the gas tank is empty..if this doesn't fix it you will need to flush out the entire fuel system and flush out the fuel tank

You probably have a bad sending unit for the fuel level in the tank. this would cause the gauge to be erratic when the level is below 1/2 tank and the float is moving around much more than when full. The oil pressure gauge problem could be caused buy a loose wire connection or a faulty sending unit.

2000 toyota celica gas gauge is stuck at 3/4 tank, when i fill the tank up it shows full but as soon as it hits 3/4 it stays there. what could it be?


Seems like the float level unit in the gas tank is damaged, and not traveling all the way down when fuel is consumed. It is an inexpensive part, $25-50 , but quite a hassle to install.

When I fill my gas tank on my 2000 Dodge intrepid, the fuel gauge will move from full, drop to empty and then back to full again. It does this over and over until the tank is down to about 3/4 full.


HI, the fuel gauge sending unit is malfunctioning. this is located inside the fuel tank and, it is part of the fuel pump assembly. replacing this failing component will fix this issue.

Fuel gauge jumps around


Depending on the severity of the problem, Sea Foam fuel additive can fix this (or at least lessen the crazy jumping around). It's available at NAPA. It worked on my Jimmy. However, in my case gauge started jumping around with less than 1/4 tank (worked fine when full).

Dashboard gauge


check the grounds on your fuel tank sending unit,must drop the tank to do this. with the tank down,remove the ground and look at your fuel gauge it should read full or empty,if it does not it may be a sending unit
