Question about 2000 Chevrolet Venture

1 Answer

Re: Floating Gas Guage

My 2000 Venture does the same thing, I could fill up the tank, and within 20 miles of usage, my guage will float from 1/4 tank to 3/4 tank, just going back and forth. It will read 3 or 4 different levels, even while sitting still on an idle. Driving me berserk also.

Either a defective half-broken cable to the sensing device, a bad chassis contact or that device (located inside the tank) is no longer good.

Fuel guage sometimes read empty when there is gas in the tank?


Check that there are no holes in the float. If the fuel is getting into the float, it will give a false reading. Another thing is to check the ground on the float sensor. If it's not connected tightly, it will create a false reading too.

Gas needle wont move


If it is showing that it is empty, the float may have sank. However, the cause could be the gauge in the dash or the sender and the sender is in the tank. It is not easy to change because you have to drop the tank. It is cheaper to replace the sender than it is to change the dash because the dash guages are all on one unit. However there are tests that can be run to see what the issue is and the tests are done using meters and jumpers etc to see if the guage responds to those. Then they know whether it is the sender or the guage.

GAS GAGE WANT STOP READING EMPTY WHEN GAS IS IN IT


To confirm if the fault is with the Rheostat float within the fuel tank or the fuel guage in the dashbboard, you can remove the wiring to the fuel tank float. If the guage reading changes- to full- then the guage is good and the fault can be a jammed rheostat which can be removed from the tank and replaced after draining the tank. The guage can be tested on the outside with a ground wiring to the plate of the fittings and as the float is moved the guage must show a change in reading. if not the voltage must be measured to confirm the working of the guage.

Fuel guage & water guage are not working properly the fuel guage reads ful then will go to empty after you drive it for awile - the water guage only goes up to a quater


The gas tank sending unit has a float on it to register the amount of gas in the tank. The float is probably faulty which will cause erratic readings and is a fairly common issue with some GM units. Replacement of the sending unit should resolve that issue. As far as the coolant temperature gauge, it could be a faulty temperature sending unit or a thermostat that is stuck open or someone removed the thermostat. This will cause the engine to never reach operating temperature which in turn makes the engine run rich and can clog cat. converters and destroy some sensors.

87 f150 dual tanks fuel gauge doesn't work how can I troubleshoot this with a multimeter; what voltages/ohms values are normal


I have a1987 F-150. The gas gauge for the rear tank always indicate that the tank is full when I know it is not. I try to put gas in but the tank won't let any gas in. Is there some type of sensors inside the tank that won't allow the tank to be filled or is this a guage problem?

Chevy Venture have O2 error code and out of gas with 1/3 tank


02 sensors read the exhaust fumes and then adjust the car's air/fuel ratio by means of the car's computer. IF the gas guage is off, that would be the sending unit in the gas tank that is sticking

Gas gauge not accurate, floating to full when it gets to 1/4 full..


there is only one thing that causes this, and that is the guage sending unit in the gas tank.

Gas Gauge not reading correctly


The most likely culprit is the sending unit in the tank. They are relatively easy to change, as long as you don't have much fuel in the tank. It's a mechanical unit that has a float that raises and lowers with the fuel level, however with age, the floats can develop leaks and no longer float, of the electronic portion of the unit can go bad and not register the proper level. They are replaced and an entire unit, so it doesn't matter which happened, you will need to change the fuel tank sending unit.
