SOURCE: My car won't let me pump gas In

sounds like the filler neck for the fuel tank was kinked when the fuel tank was reinstalled after changing the fuel pump. Bring it back to the place that put the fuel pump in and im sure they will correct it for you

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.

The fuel gauge on my 01 caravan 2.4l reads full when running, and only reads 1/4 when off, any ideas what it could be?


Many cars do this to discourage gas theft. If the car fuel gauge only shows 1/4 full, a potential thief may not bother to steal 2 or 3 gallons of gas. This is very normal.

If the gauge is stuck on full and you are sure the tank isn't full, you have a sensor sending wrong information to the dash gauge. Most cars now have a single fuel pump and sending unit that can be replaced by a mechanic.

Why is gas gauge not working correctly since fuelpump was replaced.


Is this a flex fuel vehicle. If so, call the dealership and ask the parts dept. if there is a gauge module (perhaps behind the instrument cluster). This may be the culprit and needs to be replaced.

Your gauge is reading high ... I think you are out of gas. You should calculate your actual Miles Per Gallon - find out what the capacity of your tank is and fill accordingly. For esample, you actually get 15 miles per gallon, your tank is 20 gallons - you should be able to drive about 300 miles between fillups. At 250 miles, start looking for a station.

My 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan fuel gauge does not move. I have gas in the tank, but the gauge shows the tank is empty (in fact, the dial is ~ 1/4" below "E").


the level sending unit in the tank is attached to the fuel pump module it is a varible resistor it moves as fuel level changes this sending unit can be replaced but if your going to the trouble of replacing it you just as well replace the fuel pump it comes together.

The float sending unit is messed up and don't know now much gas is in the tank. The float may be stuck in a higher position showing more gas, in reality the gas level is way below. Try using a rubber mallet and tap on the gas tank near the fuel pump. It may help free up the float.

2005 Nissan Xterra gas gauge reads empty when full of gas.


Sending unit died. can be expencive to replace since most sending units are integral with the fuel pump now. lots of labor too. Better to use the trip odometer till you can afford a day without your car and a $600.00 +labor repair bill.

My gas gauge seems to be doing the same as the others,and not only that,it gives wrong DTE readings. Check engine light comes on. I replaced the gas cap as well.


Your fuel level sending unit is bad. Part is about $90 at dealer. Drop gas tank, remove fuel pump, and sending unit is attached to fuel pump.

Gas tank is empty when gas gage read 1/4 full


They could have installed the wrong pump assembly. I would first check to see if the float arm is binding on something not allowing it to reach the empty position. If you take the assembly out, have the key onand work the sender up and down thru its travel and see if the gauge matches the sender position. Disconnect the wire going to the pump so it doesn't get damaged.
