THE FUEL LEVEL SENDING UNIT INSIDE THE FUEL TANK IS MOST LIKELY BAD. THE SENDING UNIT IS PART OF THE FUEL PUMP ASSEMBLY. IF YOU DISCONECT THE HARNESS AT FUEL PUMP AND GAUGE GOES TO EMPTY THE UNIT IS BAD

Hi, this is a sending unit issue. you can try adding some Sea Foam additive to the tank. this may release the sender. if the additive doesn't work, replace the fuel level sending unit.

SOURCE: The fuel gauge doesn't read right, makin' low fuel light flash

if the fuel pump is all in-tank; the sending unit built in to the fuel pump is most likely malfunctioning; if so, this will require removal and replacement of the entire fuel pump, sometimes expensive, others not so much

How do you fix the gas gauge? It won't read anything and it looks like it's on empty!


Courtney, Check the fuse first for the gage, if blown, replace. The gas tank will probably have to be taken out of vehicle to change the fuel sending unit. 1st Link shows how to test, other links will show replacement procedures.

I have a 94 Camaro 3.4 and I need to know what color the hot wire on the fuel pump is. I get all kinds of answers from grey, black, pink. What color is it if I hotwire the pump to check it. Also wh


I don't have the diagrams. Not buying it either. But it is either pink or grey. Anything black is ground. Since 99% of the ones I do is grey, I choose this one. A 94 has 4 wires. Two are ground. one is the fuel pump, the other is the fuel sender/gas gauge. Ground it , then add 12 volts to the others. It won't hurt it. If you won't the wiring schematics, Go to alldatadiy.com ad you can buy them, plus everything else about your car.

The low fuel light is on but even after putting gas in my 1999 Expedition, the fuel gauge still shows low fuel. What is the problem? how much gas is in the tank?


First the problem is caused by a defective fuel level sending unit, that is located inside the gas tank, the gas tank must be removed to access the part for replacement. As to the how much fuel remains there is not way to know this.

When warm my 99 camaro v6 runs like ****. I can't


Well, the first thing I would ask is what codes are you getting from the computer? If it is running that bad, your check engine light has got to be SCREAMING at you.

Then, you sort-of answered the question for me by stating that the fuel pressure is at 38 psi. The fuel pressure specification for a 1999 Chevrolet Camaro equipped with a 3.8L V-6 engine is 48-55 psi. I'll bet you have lean oxygen sensor codes and a random misfire code. (they'll do that when the fuel pressure is low.)

I would first try replacing the fuel filter and see if the numbers don't come up.
If that does not work, block the fuel return line and see if the numbers get better. If they do, you have a bad fuel pressure regulator. If they don't you either have a restriction in the fuel line or a bad fuel pump.
