Oil pressure gauge reads zero all the time.


Replace stock sender with basic mechanical gauge to see what really up, or take wire from stock sender and ground it to see if gauge comes up to top. If so, replace sender. (NOTE: Do not use teflon tape or any sealer on threads of new sender as this is the electrical path for ground.)

Fuel guage not working


I would guess that not many would do this as there is requirement for them to be both the same to balance out . GM had a problem for a while when the supplier of the gauges could not match the sender units and the gauges generally didn't work well. The real answer is to go to a wreckers that specialises in you make of car and get the dash unit to replace the damaged unit.

Fuel gauge stock onemty


you fuel gauge is a sealed unit and cannot be fixed only replaced,but your problem may be your float in your fuel tank, it could have a crack or pin hole which is filling up the float so it sinks an doesn't rise to give you correct fuel reading

Installing temperature gauge 1999 Mustang 3.8L


Congrats. Sarcasm is free.
I didn't see a question, so let's play the guessing game.

Air temp?
Water temp?
Oil temp?
Trans temp?
Your temp?

Do you need to know how to mount a gauge to the dash?
Do you need to know where to run the power wire for gauge light?
Do you need to know where to install the sensor on intake and or engine?
Do you need to borrow some tools?

I feel better after unloading sarcasm.

Now, I'm going to assume it's water temp.

if it's electronic, you can just remove the stock sensor wire from on/near the waterneck/thermostat housing and plug in the new wire.

If it's mechanical, you will need to install the new probe into a port where it can contact the water.

On my old 3.8 (1997) I changed to an aftermarket waterneck that had a spot to screw in a temp probe.

On my 2003 gt, I haven't upgraded gauges yet, but the water sensor is on the front passenger side of the intake. I will add a pic of my gt so you can see the placement.

With this type, you can just add your wires to it (splice them in) and keep both the stock gauge & the aftermarket.
Or just remove the stock wire, then the stock sensor, then install the new stuff.
it's the black wire near the alternator. (almost center right of the pic to the right of the pink fuel injector)

Just bought a 95 z 28 its all ready had k&n cold air intake, phantom air to fuel ratio, and vacuum gauges and a port to plug a lap top into so i was told, the air to fuel ratio gauge is showin its...


Cheap air/fuel gauges simply tap off the stock oxygen sensor. That sensor can only tell you lean or rich and the car should idle roughly at 14.7:1 and go rich under acceleration. Cruise down the highway at steady 50 mph and see what the gauge does. Should be calmer.
At idle the needle can bounce around quite a bit. Means nothing. It should however go sometimes rich and sometimes lean. That's how the computer adjusts, if it stays lean too long, the computer tweaks the injectors richer. If it stays rich too long, the computer tweaks it leaner. If the computer cannot adjust the ratio, it will set the check engine light and in that case it should be a flashing check engine (meaning stop the car and tow it to a shop - flash means the catalytic converter can burn out).
If you want to know the actual air-fuel ration you need to buy a wide/band oxygen sensor and related gauge. They are much more expensive and will typically run a few hundred dollars. If the car is stock except for K&N, don't bother with the air/fuel gauge.
As for computer hookup. Go read up about "LT1Edit". Don't buy the software (too expensive for a stock car) but you'll understand what software is out there to monitor your engine (and what hardware you need to buy in order for your laptop to talk to your car).

HI, MY FUEL GAUGE WORKS BUD ERRATIC, I MEAN IT DOESNT SHOW THE CORRECT AMOUNT OF GAS LEFT. WHAT COULD BE WRONG? THANKS.


In a case like this, the culpret is most likely the fuel level sending unit, which is located on the fuel pump in the fuel tank. In most vehicles, the pump and the sending unit all come in one assembly, which means in order to get a correct reading on the gauge, you'll need to replace the fuel pump. And actually, considering the fact that you have to drop the fuel tank and remove the pump anyway, it's just good measure to change them as a set.

I hope this helps! :)

FUEL PRESURE / FUEL GAUGE


Buick with a 5.0?? OK, regardless, pressure should not drop like that. Possible that fuel filter is full of **** & should be changed, or, you may indeed have a bad pump... (can happen). Sending unit: sounds like you have the leads reversed or the unit is somehow different than the one you replaced.
