2003 Honda Civic Gas Guage says 3/4 full on full tank of gas


The fuel meter inside the tank has malfunctioned. One option is to replace the fuel pump. Second option is to bring down the fuel tank and remove the fuel pump and check see if the metering rod was bent. Now if you are not having problems with the fuel pump. I would deal with the gauge being low and continue running the car until the time comes to replace the fuel pump.

Took my car in because of a gas leak and gasgauge that reads FULL all the time.. mechanic replaced the fuel pump but can't get the gas gauge to not read FULL. What to do?


If he told you the fuel pump would correct the fuel guage, take the car back and make them fix it under warranty. I have been in the auto repair business for 21 years and if I mis-diagnose a car, I have to fix it for free to keep the customer happy.

Just had our 2001 ford expedition's fuel pump replaced and the fuel gauge has since then not been reading accurately. What could cause this? I've taken my car back three times and was told that the fuel...


If the guage is reading but not accurately it may be the incorrect fuel pump for the vehicle or the float is may not be in the retaining clip all the way. Also possible that the float got bent during installation. Can you describe what the guage is doing such as reading full when its 1/2 full or jumping around on you?

Gas guage needle works sometimes other times the guage will read far pst the full mark


You more than likely have a bad fuel level sensor.You should be able to replace just the level sensor without replacing the complete fuel pump module.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Gas gauge is not reading correctly. Shows a full


the problem is caused by a defective gas gauge sending unit, this part is located inside the gas tank, you must remove the gas tank to replace it.

Fuel guage-1991 ford aerostar


2 things.
There is a sensor that goes from the dash to the fuel pump. If it is disconnected, dirty, or faulty, then thats an easy fix.
There is also a float in the gas tank itself. From what Ive been told after time, or going over big speed bumps, etc, that the float just simply doesnt float or register.
Mine actually shows I have a full tank or im empty at all times. No in between.

Gas gauge not working property


Pontiac has a problem with the sender for the fuel guage. A quart of transmission fluid in a full tank of gas usually fixes it. The "engine" light, won't be on because of that. Quite often that is the air filter or fuel cap.
