The fuel sending unit has gone out. This sending unit operates the fuel gauge. It is located in the gas tank. You will have to remove the tank to fix this. You can try banging on the tank, sometimes the float arm on it gets rusty and will get stuck in one position and the banging will free it up. From your description though, it sounds like the sending unit has shorted out and needs to be replaced.
Please remember to rate this fix.

How do I correct erratic fuel gauge problem on 2007 Saturn Vue Red line 3.50ci, gauge goes from full to empty and engine light comes on, light goes off and gauge returns to normal. Am trying to correc


there is usually a resistor built into the actual guage that smooths out the signals from the fuel sender unit , not sure if you will be able to repair to this level , time and money might be better spent on a new gauge

Fuel gauge stays on full


You may have a unique problem!!! Normally I would say it is the sending unit- in the fuel tank!!!! But Buick LeSabre had a weird thing happen from time to time. Look closely at your fuel guage and focus on the PIN that acts as a stop for the fuel guage to not go beyond the Full mark. Make sure the pin is on the correct side of the pin!!! Sometimes the needle will somehow jump the pin on "E" or "F", and literally hold the needle in place.

My fuel guage will go from full to empty a few times while at an idle or with the key on engine off thensettle into the correct level. It happens erratically.


sounds like a loose connection somewhere could be ground connection or corrosion problem check connections and clean if that does not solve could be sending unit getting ready to fail replace as nessary

Mercury Sable 1996 Fuel gauge erratic how to repair it and what piece to buy ?


i would most likely replace the sending unit in the tank,this is wat meters fuel level and transmits bak to guage. i would first tap on top of dash board wen guage acts up to see if there are any changes in its erratic action,if there is then ur problem would b a faulty guage or in that area,if not then its safe to go bak to tank area an replace sending unit... good luck

My 2003 ford taurus won't start and the theft light is on and the trunk will not open? Whats the problem?


I have a similar problem, intermitently the car will not crank. The dome light stays on which eliminates the battery. The clock on the radio turns off when I try to start it. Th Theft light is solid red the first time I try to start it, then latter after a few tries the red light is off, but it still wont start. I tried moving the shifter when in park, I even tried starting it in neutral. After a while it starts and once started it runs fine. I will have to take it to Ford next week. We just do not want to drive it, it is too unreliable. It is a 2000 Ford Taurus.

Fuel guages bottomed out below empty


1 st check all your fuses ....but sounds like a bad ground lift the vehicle off the ground and put a jack stand under it .. locate the tank then locate the wires going to the tank find the ground wire that is connected to it and look to ensure it is still making a connection as well as not over corroded if so remove the old screw and with sandpaper or a wire brush clean the surface of the eye clip as well as a new screw as well if possible unclip and reclip the connector so to help loosen any rust that may cause any interference with the connection this should fix ya

U may have a defective fuel pressure check valve in the electric fuel pump, u have the classic symptoms, to check this buy a fuel pressure test guage for your truck, about $40, the test port for fuel pressure is on the top of th engine in the fuel rail that supplies fuel to the injectors, hook up the guage to the test port and run the engine, make sure u have no fuel leaks at the hook up, then shut down the engine, the fuel pressure should not drop more than 5 PSI, if it does the check valve is defective and you need a new fuel pump
