Question about 1999 Isuzu Rodeo

1 Answer

Gas tank/ gas gauge

I put in a new gas tank because it was leaking somewhere...but now my gas gauge is not working. I have only had this 1999 4 wheel drive Isuzu Rodeo for a few months and i am unsure how big my gas tank is... and apparently my gas gauge is broken as well...does anyone know how big the tank is?

What does your manual say that it is? Always check in your manual and you will have plenty of information to help solve your questions. However, I want to venture a guess about your gas gauge. You may have a computer mis-read and the new tank install is not interfacing with your computer.

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.

My for taurus 1999 gas gauge will not work. I put in a new fuel pump and they also change out the gauge inself. Still will not work

Perhaps there is a broken are bad ground somewhere. The fuel gauge should work off resistance to ground.

The fuel gauge goes to full but it drops rapidly what could the issue be?

you might have a leak or it just happens to be that most cars have this issue. even if you have a lot of gas in the car, the gauge shows a higher amount than it really has in the tank. this is caused by the actual shape of the gas tank. the less gas you have, the more accurate the gauge is.

My 1997 Voyager appears to be leaking gasoline. It has a 3.0 liter engine and runs fine. But I'm positive there is a leak somewhere because I put 4 gallons in the tank, go about 50 miles and the gas gauge...

It could be the gauge, or the sensor attached to the Fuel pump in the fuel tank. I don't remember if the Instrument cluster has a replace gauge for fuel in that year model, I know the 1994 didn't. To replace the sensor in the tank you have to replace the pump as well, they are 1 piece and run about $200 for the part. I would just start keeping track of mileage with the trip meter if it were me but the choice is yours. You can replace the Instrument cluster with a used one or refurbished one if you like. That will cost about $75 for the part. If that doesn't work it's the tank sensor.

My truck has been sitting for 5 years.. I know it will need a battery, new tires, new fulids. But, what about a fuel pump? Is it located in the gas tank? Also, before it was parked the gas gauge did not...

Plloy ,To answer 1st question ,is fuel pump in your gas tank, The Answer is YES. And as Far as your Gas Gauge ,1st Check to make sure its connections at the Gas Tank are Good and Clean. if this does'nt solve it then check your Fuses,I believe theres a Fuse just for your Gas Gauge.If All Fails then its probally your Sending Unit Located In the Gas Tank Also. This will have to Be Changed.

1999 Pontiac Grand AM 4DR. SE fuel gauge and other problems(help)

I have a 97 and an 00 Grand Prix and an 03 Pontiac Montana. The fuel gauge in all three vehicles don't work. The dealer here says it's a common problem in Colorado where I live. The government required additives in the gas cause corrosion problems with the fuel level sensor float linkage that sends the signal to the fuel gauge. The repair requires the removal of your fuel tank and replacement of the linkage and sensor. It would cost somewhere around $500. I've leared to reset my trip meter with every fill-up and watch the miles and check the fuel mileage with every fill-up to make sure I know when I'm about to run out.

Gas Gauge not working

when the fuel pump was installed the gas tank sending unit was either jammed when put back in the tank, is defective, or the sending unit was no reconnected.

Best bet is to replace gas tank. It could hae a hairline fracture somewhere. Sounds like pretty much everything else was replaced already.
