There is a fuel float in the tank just like in the back of a toilet. you have to pull up back seat cushions to get to it i believe. it will be a round plate type with a couple wires coming out. undo it and pull up the float and probably pump too, i dont know if the pump is in tank or out on that car. its easy enough you dont have to pay someone to do it. good luck

This is not a calibration issue, the sender in the fuel tank is the problem, this is a common symtom for senders when they fail

pull the cluster out and check for soft set coupler check all couplers on the fuse panel one sounds to be soft set or you have a bad ground best to take to a dealer but i work for honda builing civics and it is very comon to find a soft set coupler when we do our checks on line so maybe one has slipped through but it is one of those 2 things i am 99% sure

SOURCE: The amber engine light on

The gas tank has a sensor to monitor fuel evaporation. If it determines that fuel is evaporating from the tank, the check engine light will come on. It usually is caused by the gas cap losing it's seal. Get a new gas cap,make sure it is made for your car. That should eliminate the light.

Car of year 1998, when tank is full or medium from fuel, guage shows empty. When tank is completely empty, the guage shows full. Guage is of digital type with the bars. What can I do ? Any tests I...


Digital gauge also gets its input for fuel level from a float in the tank. Here the culprit can be that float because the error is systematic i.e., full on empty and empty on full/half. If the reading was erratic then it was something to do with IC in the bars display panel.

My gas guage stays on empty and the tank is full


Sounds like your senor in the gas tank it self is bad. Most cars have a float that read out how full the tank is and when it goes out it will stay stuck showing you on the dash that your tank is empty even though it is 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.

Gas guage not reading accurate


Your sending unit inside of the fuel tank is probably faulty. Unfortunately you have to drop the tank to change it.
