Problem with my petrol float


Yes it sounds like you have found your own problem the float in your petrol tank is faulty and needs to be checked out. Check the wiring to the gauge is ok before doing anything at the end where the wires connect to it.

My BMW X1 shut off in the middle of the road eventhough it had a 1/4 tank of petrol left. BMW suggested I fill it up with petrol and it started again. I am left confused as to why that happened...


The fuel sender unit could be faulty. It says 1/4 tank even though it is almost empty. Carry a jerry can of gas in the back , and run it down to 1/4 or less to see if the problem repeats itself.
The gas guage and trip computer are only as accurate as the float in the tank.

Petrol guage sticking. when refualing guage sits just above empty and warning light stays on.


The float inside the gas tank is probably "soaked" and doesn't float properly anymore. It will have to be replaced to get the gauge to work properly.

Nissan primera saloon 2002 1.8cc, petrol. Light and arrow,on petrol level control board, blinking ON and OFF , sometime does not work at all when petrol tank is not empty. I checked all fuses. Some where...


Locate your petrol tank, then at top of it there is a hole where you can get access to the float level switch, before you removed it you check the socket on it, maybe lose connection.

Petrol gauge was working fine before a 5 week holiday. Car not used during this time. Now petrol gauge shows tank empty, even after I had filled the tank. What is wrong? How do you fix this?


sounds like the float is either got a hole in it and is full of fuel, or the whole float assembly is seized in the empty position.
was the car left for 5 weeks empty of fuel?

91Mazda 626 dies suddenly after 10 minutes running fine


I had the same,drove me nuts,made sure of fuel and spark(about 10 times),all good.anyway after it stopped looked under bonnet to find petrol coming out of carb,(didn't notice this before because the petrol had evaporated by the time i looked).took carb apart ,cleaned and checked jets,all resonable.Then i looked at the float seemed good but checked by putting into boiling water only to find small bubbles coming out of the float !!!!! thus float not floating right, too much petrol and flooding and then stopping.But let it cool down and everything sorts itself out and your good for another 10 minutes.You can check for air leeks by spraying wd40 around suspected areas and looking for bubbles.am no expert but hope this helps.
In short air leaks bad. Float not floating bad.

Petrol light reading empty when full.


you can check to see if your guage is getting electricity to it with a test light first and foremost, and then use a wire to directly give it electricity without it being connected to the harness itself and see if it moves too, if it moves with giving it electricity then it's not the guage itself... then check the wires at the tank to see if the harness is getting electricity there. if it is and the guage isn't moving when you wiggle the harness, drop the tank and replace the assembly as a unit that goes inside the tank that has the float attached that makes the guage work.
