Remove the back seat and you should find two covers with wire on them, one is the fuel pump and the other is the floater, its probably stuck due to condensation. pull it out and if its rusty just wipe off the rust or sand it down with a fine grit sandpaper and ensure the floater goes up and down with ease, reinstall half way and check your gauge before putting eveything back and if that don't work you need a new one.

My fuel needle showe quarter and my ibiza 2006 shut off need more 5 liters


Fuel gauges are never precision instruments, but you can fix this to show at least empty when it's empty.
If you can't access the top of the fuel tank you need to drain and then remove the fuel tank and take out the fuel sender unit. Otherwise just remove the sender unit from the tank.
Hold the wire with the float on it firmly and bend the wire to raise the float slightly.
Replace the float and check the fuel gauge reading. Repeat the procedure until the gauge gives an acceptable reading.
That should stop you from running out of go juice before the gauge hits zero, but you might not have a completely full reading when you fill up. Live with it..

Fuel gage aint working


all parts may be new but if the fuel gauge sender float has been bent when being installed into tank this will give false readings - if the float has been bent up during installation then it is likely that it will only read fro three quarters of a tank up as the float can not get any lower due to being bent, I recommend that a new pump/float is installed very carefully.

Fuel gage does not work. The gage will read full but after driving for about 30 miles it will read empty & the light chimes on.


sounds like a bad float / sensor or just a bad ground.
Check the connections where the fuel pump goes into the gas tank. Make sure the ground is good and solid and not rusty. If wiring is good the float is probably bad

My fuel gage says that im at a quarter tank but im actually on empty is there a sensor in the gas tank or do i need a new fuel gage


95% of the time it is your fuel level sensor in the tank.You will need to drop the tank to remove the sender to access.If you go to gm they make just the sensor for the sending unit.

Chevy Venture have O2 error code and out of gas with 1/3 tank


02 sensors read the exhaust fumes and then adjust the car's air/fuel ratio by means of the car's computer. IF the gas guage is off, that would be the sending unit in the gas tank that is sticking

Gas gage isnt right it keeps floating


The Sorento gs tank is under the floor in the back seat. Flip the seat bottom's forward and pull open the Velcro to access the top of the tank. The fuel pump and sender may be accessible from the top, but you might be unlucky and have t remove the tank.

Gas tank is empty when gas gage read 1/4 full


They could have installed the wrong pump assembly. I would first check to see if the float arm is binding on something not allowing it to reach the empty position. If you take the assembly out, have the key onand work the sender up and down thru its travel and see if the gauge matches the sender position. Disconnect the wire going to the pump so it doesn't get damaged.

Calibrate a fuel gage (gas)


Assuming you don't have some kind of Space Shuttle technology to work with, the best thing to start with is an empty gas tank. When you install the sending unit the little float will be hanging down and the gauge should read empty. You can do some minor adjustments to the float while you are monkeying around with it so that, for example, "Empty" is not empty. This way even if the gauge is reading empty you will know that you have a few gallons left in there as a back up reserve so even if you are reading in the reserve range that you know you will still have a couple gallons left in the tank when you hit the big "E".
