Fuel pump or cluster it self

Posted on Feb 27, 2009

  • cowboy67829 Feb 27, 2009

    its the cluster gas hand needs to be fixed or when they put a new fuel pump in the the float may have been stuck in the upward position and they did not noitice it, this will be the only 2 things it can be nothing else operates the gas gage go to autozone.com and look up fuel pump you can just buy the fuel pump by it self but the float is sold as one unit, its either sticking or your cluster gas hand needs repaired. Hopefully this will help.

replace the gas tank unit. 99 percent of the problems of this type require the tank unit to be replaced. it is a flaw with the GM cars, that GM refuses to have a recall on.

89 jeep Grand Wagoneer fuel gauge not reading.


Did the mechanic use an OEM replacement unit or an after-market unit? I think the original unit has a damping circuit to prevent immediate response when accelerating/stopping/cornering; the needle reacts slowly to changes in fuel level. If the new unit shows an immediate transient response, but settles back down to the actual fuel level, I'd just live with it.

I have a 2000 Grand Prix SE and car specs say that it has a 68 liter gas tank. I converted that into gallons, and its about 17.8 gallons. when i refueled, the gas pump only said it put in 12 gallons when...


make sure you fuel tank float isn't becoming saturated with gasoline. If the gauge reads full when it is indeed full, you probably don't have a short in the wire that goes to your fuel float sending unit. If that wire is bare and shorts out it will say you tank is empty since it works on resistance open or unplugged the gauge would read full, closed is or going to ground the gauge will read empty. I would think the float might be bad or the float arm got stuck down when you turned a sharp corner. I had one of these cars but I don't remember exactly where the fuel level sending unit is located and if you need to remove the fuel tank to gain access to the sending unit. I hope this helps you

I have a 2002 grand prix gt my gas gage goes from full to emty sometimes it goes 3/4 sometimes 1/4 do u no what the problem is


sounds like you need new fuel pump. fuel pump located in gas tank. before you go buy a new fuel pump first push up and down on trunk of car real hard to try to dislodge the little armature inside of tank. this little armature is what sends the signal to the gauge telling you the quantity. push up and down on truck to try to dislodge small signal armature then check your quantity. try this when you are having the problem and i am willing to bet the little armature is stuck. the only way to fix is to buy a new pump.

Grand prix gas gauge not working


should be a grey wire going to the top of fuel tank connects to fuel guage / when the guage in the tank reads grounded it shows full , no ground it shows empty. if you ground that grey wire and the guage jumps to full then faulty guage if nothing maybe bad ground on the tank itself. the guages are a reostat like a tyco race car gun the more it moves the more it grounds .. good luck
