This happens on mine, its got to do with the fuel sensor, I frequently fill up and sometimes keep fueling after the nozzle clicks. This is what caused my problem. I have since stopped fueling immediately after it clicks and have not had the problem. Make sure you arent over filling your tank

Need to replace the sensor inside the gas tank. I have a 2008 Malibu with the same problem. It was a faulty fuel gauge sensor.

2005 Chevy Malibu the gas guage has stopped working. The guage will go from full to empty over and over. The gas cap light comes on and now my engine light is on constantly. How do I get this fixed for...


hey the reason your gas gauge is going from full to empty is that your fuel pump which is in the gas tank has a sensor that relays how much gas the tank has in it, the sensor is gone bad and will have to be replaced. And your engine light problem is probley due to putting gas in the car while it is running, my wife has a 2005 malibu and we have had the same problems with her car hope this was helpful

2002 chev malibu gas gage gose to empty E with a full tank of gas


its a problem with your sending unit most likly. its in your gas tank and tells your gauge how much gas is in your tank. I had a chevy truck and a blazer and both of them had this problem. I believe its a problem with all chevy models in my opinon. I would most definatly say that its your sending unit.

Just had a new fuel pump installed in 2002 Chevy Malibu. Worked great for about a week and then the fuel gauge started reading "empty" when the car has a full tank of gas. What happened?

Fuel guage not working correctly


your gauge is part of the integrated unit in the fuel pump module

Gas guage no longer works when below half a tank.


You are probably looking at dropping the fuel tank down and removing the float and sending unit ( all in one unit). Once it's taken apart, you may see that you can fix it or you may have to replace it.

Replace the fuel pump module (inside the fuel tank) it has 2 level sensors on it. The po463 code is an open condition on the high level sensor, one sensor reports to the ECM, other to your gas gauge on the dash.
