2009 Cadillac Escalade ESV Issues ?!!!


Drop the gas tank and check for contamination/corrosion. You're going to have to do that to replace the fuel level sender anyway and check both the fuel pump (it's in the tank) and the primary filter on the pickup tube.

I have a 2002 lincoln ls that has gas guage reading only a quarter tank when full. I know there is 2 pumps on this car, one is the primary pump under passenger back seat and a jet transfer pump on drivers...


Fuel pumps outside the gas tank have nothing to do with fuel gauge readings. There is a fuel level sender unit inside the tank with a float which supplys variable ground circuit to the gauge. If you can find the wire to this unit, you can ground it to see if the gauge now goes to full. If so, sender unit in tank is bad, or has bad wiring/ground.

My fuel needle showe quarter and my ibiza 2006 shut off need more 5 liters


Fuel gauges are never precision instruments, but you can fix this to show at least empty when it's empty.
If you can't access the top of the fuel tank you need to drain and then remove the fuel tank and take out the fuel sender unit. Otherwise just remove the sender unit from the tank.
Hold the wire with the float on it firmly and bend the wire to raise the float slightly.
Replace the float and check the fuel gauge reading. Repeat the procedure until the gauge gives an acceptable reading.
That should stop you from running out of go juice before the gauge hits zero, but you might not have a completely full reading when you fill up. Live with it..

Sounds like at 1/4 reading,the actual reading of the fuel should be empty.Your gauge sending unit in the tank is most likely defective.Many are on these.

Fuel sending unit mazda millenia 1998


Well, yes the tank is under pressure at times, but the gauge problem is probably the sending unit.
Every few minutes the computer tries to vent the tank to the vapor canister and the engine which would be affected by the leaking gasket.
You will probably need to replace the sending unit and then you can fix the seal too. Once the seal is disturbed it usually does not fit the hole.

Fuel gauge shows quarter tank then the low fuel light comes on showing eighth of tank


Most likely it's one or BOTH fuel level sender units in the fuel tank (there are two float units, one with the fuel pump). Located under the rear pass seats on the driver's side and another on passenger side (seats need to be moved out of the way to get to them - four 14mm bolts with each seat).

You'll see the 8mm screws holding the units in place.

Wiring Diagram:









8047594.jpg In this diagram, the sender units are wired in series (one or both may be causing your problem). The sender units are simple potentiometers (rheostats) & their combined resistance tell the microcomputer in the instrument cluster what the fuel level is, then It tells the fuel gauge where to put the needle. Inspect your wiring connectors to these sender units first. These sender units can be ordered/purchased at a Hyudai Parts Department. I don't believe there are any after-market units available - they are a dealer item.
