Hate to be the bearer of bad news but you asked
you will have to drop the fuel tank and pull the float assembly out and you can try to clean it up but it usually is only a temporary fix

98 gmc jimmy fuel guage not working


No issues with the fuel guage that I know of , but you can follow the basic troubleshooting guidelines. Starting with the wiring disconnect at the fuel tank for a bad connector or bad connection. Only other connection would be up to the instrument cluster in the vehicle. Only replaceable items would be the guage or the sending unit in the fuel tank. You can disconnect the return line circuit or connector at the at the gas tank and jump a wire to the ground the that feeds the gauge and see if the guage moves, but don't and i repeat don't hold to long because the guage will go over hard over and could damage the guage. If the guage moved and I would suspect a bad float on the sending unit or a bad sending unit, either case the fuel pump assy would have to come out for repairs.

Gas gauge doesnt read gas amount


Gas gauge might need ajustment or re-placed. Won't hurt to get it checked out. Don't want to get stuck some where with no gas. Hope this helps.

Gas guage is inacurate


fuel sender is bad its in the fuel tank along with the pump if you have never replaced the fuel pump yet then when you fix the sender better off and replace the whole unit most of them come with sender and pump together as one its easier anyway sense you'll already have tank down anyway.

LOCATION OF FUEL PUMP


In the top of the gas tank. It is also your sending unit for gas guage.

Fuel guage is not working on my 95 GMC Yukon it points past the full mark and it started when my fuel pump was replaced.


BINGO ! ! The fuel indicator mechanism is IN the fuel pump assembly (in the gas tank). Apparently the mechanic that did the work did NOT hook up the wiring harness OR the float is jammed. Go back to who ever did the work and COMPLAIN.

Fuel gauge problem


sending unit on the fuel pump in the tank is stuck, and needs to be replaced. its expensive, but that will fix your issue. its the housing around the pump that has the float arm on it. you can try to free the float arm by removing your pump assembly, but cant guarantee its any good after being stuck

Fuel gauge stuck on half full


I can tell you almost for certain your fuel level sending unit is bad, I have been able to fix them though. It requires removing the gas tank and then the fuel pump. You can if your inclined, bend the brushes on the small circuit board over more so they will make better contact on to it. Other wise its a new fuel pump assembly, check all plugs and wiring by unpluging and repluging them to insure no bad connect. It is possible it could be the guage itself, but in thirty years of fixing cars never had a bad guage

sounds like the computer has a glitch. you might need to go to the dealer to have the computer trained(reprogrammed) or to see if you need a new one.
