1987 Nissan Maximum gas hand doesn't work & transmission is reading full but it leaks sometimes


There are three fixes possible for the gas gauge....but I would have this troubleshot by a garage:

1. The gas gauge itself does not work anymore. It could have just finally "died". Problem is, you cannot replace just the gauge. It has to be the whole instrument cluster. Having a garage shoot power TO the gauge and then shot the gauge itself will let you know if the gauge assembly is bad.

2. The fuel sending unit is bad. This means the wiring to the gas tank fuel pump/sending unit is bad and does not work. The signal is not being sent to the fuel/gas gauge. This means the fuel pump assembly needs replacing.

3. There is a wire problem somewhere between the gas tank and the dash to the fuel gauge.

The transmission leaking but still reading full just means that there is plenty of transmission fluid in the transmission. The drips or spots you are finding are not enough to "read" low enough. Unless you have a HUGE spot of tranny fluid left on the ground, I would just think about a transmission fluid filter change. This way, a new pan gasket will be installed and fresh fluid filled to the proper level will be accomplished on your car.

Digital gas gauge reading incorrectly and inverted


sounds like a faulty sender unit or your just realy low on fuel before you spend any money on repairs try filling the tank up with fuel as if its been low for a long time the sender unit in the tank may be sticking the fuel will lube it and may start working again

Have a '92 4runner gas gauge has stopped working properly how does the system work?


It could either be a bad circuit board that controls the gas gauge, or the float in the fuel tank that is connected to the fuel pump has a crack in it and is full of gas so it just sits at near its lowest point.

Gas gauge does not work


there is a floater in the gas tank that causes the gauge on your dash to read empty to full.

Ford focus fuel gauge not working


it might be the floater inside the gas tank or the sending unit which sends the info to the ecu and tells you how much gas you have replace that and it should work, sometimes it can be a faulty cluster gauge too

My gas gauge is not working most of the time sometimes it does also my speedometer works sometimes and than it doesn't. So i'm sure it can't be a fuse...


I would check the fuses again. If you are sure it is not the fuse, you need to check the fuel gauge located inside of the gas tank. If it is broken, It needs to be replaced. This will fix your fuel gauge. Hope this helps! Please rate 4 thumbs up!

My gas gauge & speedometer gave out on my 2004 gmc yukonis there any recall on this type of situation?


Yes there is a recall for erratic gauge readings. They will supply new instrument cluster and labor to install it at no charge to you. Tell the service writer that your gauges only work sometimes and they'll help you out. worked for me!!!

Incorrect fuel gauge reading or no reading


While it could be a bad gauge, as it's an electric gauge, most likely it's the sending unit inside the gas tank. Make sure your fuses are good, and your ground wires are clean and tight, especially under the car. If all that checks out, you might want to drop the gas tank and pull out the sending unit.
