There is only one thing that causes this problem, and that is the gas gauge sending unit in the gas tank is defective.

Gas tank will not fill up on 2001 ford expedition


Gas as in gasoline or gas as in LPG gas? If its petrol, the fuel sender may be out of adjustment. (Usually means a new sender) If its LPG, the fuel stations are set to automatically shut off at 80% full. The gas tank will never actually be full to the brim but the gauge should be showing full if the gas nozzle keeps shutting off. Have a look on the LPG tank itself, they have a little gauge on them which shows how full it is. I have 2 tanks on my car , when "full" or when the pump shuts down, the tank gauges show just under full but the gauge on the cars dash shows full (2005 BA Ford)

Fuel gauge


I don't think you could trust that either. Sounds like the sending unit in the tank is messed up, so it may never read correctly. By now, you must know the approximate miles per gallon it gets, so until you get the gauge fixed, you should go by the number of miles you go to know when it needs gassing up. Just as a ballpark figure, a '97 Sierra, city driving, maybe 15-17 mpg? I really don't know, you could google it I'm sure.

Fuel gage not working


Could be the sending unit in the tank, or the gauge on the dash. A mechanic would check the signal from the sending unit at the tank.

I have a 2000 3.8 impala that wont take gas and the gas gauge stays full.


Wont take gas and the gas gauge stays full? This question really doesn't make sense. But if you cant put anymore gas in the car and the gauge says full then you have a full tank of gas. If the gauge always says full even when the gas tank is not full then the sender unit is failing or the gauge itself.

The needle for the gas gauge fluctuates, it will say empty and the light is on then it will go up and say half full or full and then back down!!!


You need to check your GAS FLOAT terminal, corrosion and oxidation sometimes send an ERROR to ur gauge( DON"T WORRY no spark will happen 'cause thats only a GROUND activated wire) ! After cleaning it and nothing happens you need to bring ur car to the nearest garage mechanic to check on the GAS FLOAT itself!
Taaah!

I need to know how to reset a gas gauge on 1997 pontiac grand am se


If gas guage is pegged either full or empty, it is most likely a broken wire to sending unit on the top of the tank. If guage reads wrong, like too much or too little is either bad sending unit in tank or bad guage in dash.

Gas gage read full when empty and sometimes emty


You have a bad fuel level sensor.The fuel tank needs to come out and the sensor replaced.You don`t have to replace the pump assembly.You can get the level sensor separate.I`m not sure if the parts stores have it but I know the dealerships do.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Gas gauge flucuates to empty and full so we never know if we have enough gas. What to do?


It is a common problem. It is a faulty in tank sender. You can just replace the sending unit by removing tank.

Gas gauge


Sounds like you have a bare or broken wire earthing out on the chassis/body Trace the wires from the tank back to the engine bay and check that the wires are intact.
