Fix a stuck gas float


I think you will find you no longer have a carburetor on your vehicle, so you have no carb float.
if you mean the float for the gas gauge, this is in the gas tank. Google procedures and be careful......

My gas gage doesn't work. It always say empty and that orange light never turns off . How do I fix this?


Your float in the tank that reads your fuel lvl has a hole, has filled with gas, and no longer floats. Remove the tank, and install new float.

Gasgage not going to full when i fill up.


You have to ask yourself if you really really want to fix this.

There's a float and potentiometer inside the gas tank. If the float is getting blocked from floating all the way up or the potentiometer is only going so far up, that would create this problem. The whole assembly is called the "gas tank sending unit".

The tough part is that you probably have to drop the gas tank to replace or fix these items. It's rare that cars have access holes under the back seat for this.

My gas gauge don't work. how do you fix that problem?


Hi, 1st , of course, check for a blown fuse for your instrument panel.
If your gas gauge is reading empty then it could be that the float in the gas tank has a leak and doesn't float anymore. It has sunk. This will cause a working gauge to show empty all of the time. The float that goes into the gas tank is about 1.5 inches long by about an inch wide. It should be a hollow brass cylinder.
this cylinder attaches to a swinging arm that when it moves in the tank, it shows a different resistance depending on where the float is. In other words the height of the float connected to the arm shows the different reading. Note: if you are going to replace the float, or the fuel tank sending unit, make sure the gasoline tank is as empty as possible.
Photo below of what a float looks like (this is probably not the exact one). You may only be able to purchase a complete "fuel sending unit", which includes the float. Probably the best way to get one is from a junk yard.

FUELGAUGE STUCK ON MY 2002 FIREBIRD


There is a float in your gas tank that raises up and down. When you fill your car with gas it will move up, when your burning gas it will go down. So if your fuel gauge is stuck then your float in your tank is stuck and you won't know how much gas you have. To fix this you will have to remove the tank to fix the float. Hope this helps.
