Just changed fuel pump on 2005 f250 4x4 and fuel gauge moves up tom 1/8 tank and reads low fuel on full tank, why is my fuel gauge not working correctly

The fuel sending unit rod was bent during the instalation giving you the false readings. This is the thin metal rod that attaches the float to the sender.

Gas tank

Yes inside the fuel tank itself there is a gas leveling unit. That reads the level of gas inside the tank and send a certain amount of voltage from it to the gauge itself. If the tank were full of fuel the voltage sent is greater than if the tank were empty. You will have to remove the gas tank or I actually prefer removing the truck bed to access the top of the fuel tank. Hope this helps.

Gas gauge does not read well below half tank

More than likely a floater issue!! This is located within the gas tank and mounted to the fuel pump. It sends a unique signal depending on the amount of fuel within the tank determining fuel gauge readings. Its very possible the unit is defective causing improper gauge readings.

My fuel gauge stays on empty on my 99 f250 5.4

check wire to fuel pump assy in tank. Likely corroded connector there or a bad sending unit in tank.

My 2008 chevy malibu fuel gauge dose not read only some times when its a full tank the gauge is dead but about 1/4 tank it reads but gos in and out ?

this is caused by a defective gas gage sending unit, the sending unit is part of the fuel pump module inside the gas tank, the gas tank must be removed to replace the fuel pump module that also contains the sending unit.

1993 F-250 gas v-8, fuel gauge reads empty on both tanks, both tanks are full, gauge will go up to 1/4 when the key is turned off

sounds like you have a typical ford gauge cluster issue.......not only have i had to replace them as an automotive technician, but also in my 92 bet is to locate a good used donor cluster or pay the big bucks for a replacement from ford

Gas gauge reads full most of the time some times reads true but always gos to full 99 F250 super duty

Check the harness connector at the fuel tank for a short to ground and test to see if the tank is properly grounded.

Hard starting

Coolant temperature sensor sounds like it went bad. It is reading that the engine is warm all the time, so the computer is not commanding additional fuel for startup. Easy and cheap fix.
