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.

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.

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

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.

I have a 99 Durango 318 it acts like its not


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
