Why my gas milage fluctuating on gauge


check the sending unit in the tank when they go bad they will miss read the level. Sometimes the car can be full and the gauge will read only a quarter tank or it might be low and will read 3/4 to full.

Hi my 1998 Nissan micra k11 fuel gauge keeps fluctuating changes the sensor in the tank still the same


In a conventional system the tank sensor provides a variable ground path for the gauge which is fed by a stable regulated voltage from the instrument regulator. Sometimes the regulator will fail and cause a fluctuating voltage supply depending on engine speed, whether the lights are on or off and suchlike. Mostly such fluctuations, if they seem random, are caused by a less-than-perfect connection somewhere, mostly the fuel tank ground connection. Newer systems use a computer to drive the instruments but excellent connections are equally important..

Why is temp gauge fluctuating while driving car is not hot.


Check the coolant level. Sometimes when the coolant level is low, it will cause gauge fluctuations like you suggest, since air is getting into the cooling system. When air is in the system, it causes the thermostat to open and close frequently resulting is wild temp gauge swings.

98 BLAZER LT, Just had a new crate motor installed. Now after installation of motor a number of things is not working. 1 gas gauge fluctuates, either reads full or empty but gas light does come on when low...


The best professional advice I can offer u is return it to installed the motor & explain whats going on. Evidently there are either bad electrical connections, vacuum lines or damages during installation. They might not take full responsibility but they will probably work with u. good luck

Battery indicator light comes on above idle RPM, gauges start fluctuating.


The first thing you need to know is what the alternator output is when this starts happening.
It could be a faulty connection in the wiring harness, or a bad ground connection, or a failing alternator.

Hyundai 2003 Santa Fe 2.7V6 - engine turns over fine, doesn't seem to be getting fuel immediately. Eventually it starts after 5 or 6 seconds of turning over. Suspect fuel filter or fuel pump?


Initially I would agree fuel pressure had dropped off after shut down. This fuel filter is a sock screen attached to the fuel inlet tube of the fuel pump and is located inside the fuel tank with the fuel pump. This screen is rarely the cause. You'll need a fuel pump pressure gauge to verify the low fuel pressure at start up. Caution, sometimes this low pressure isn't a faulty pump, sometimes it's a poor wiring connection to the pump motor. An analog amp meter can verify if there is fluctuation/ing current flow to the fuel pump. A fluctuating current flow could mean poor connections, or could mean the pump has/is gone/going bad.

2000 buick century custom. fuel gauge fluctuates between empty and 1/2 when level falls below 1/2 tank. low fuel light works. problem sending unit (how hard to change), gauge, or other?


The sender unit has a fine resistance wire with a slider to read the level, the slider or wires are worn and making intermittent contact, the low fuel light is a seperate switch so it will still work.access to the sender is usually under the rear seat cushon, under the soundproofing and a cover, have a look and describe what you have .
