Inside the tank there is a floater attached to a lever that at the end of the lever have a resistor that signal the fuel amount
Definitely is faulty this part is always attached to the only wires that goes to the fuel tank

1) Check the ohms reading from the sending unit. On the fuel pump there is a sending unit that sends the signal to the gauge for the level of fuel. On most cars you can get it separate from the fuel pump. Its either the sending unit that is messed up or the cluster.
2) As for the car not starting right away, go to link below:

Had a 1/4 tank of gas in car but low fuel light stays on, put 5 more gallons of gas in the car and light will not go off, gas hand will not move and car will not crank 2001 Chevy Malibu


check the connection for the fuel pump at the right rear wheel just above the control arm. the connection gets corroded and causes the fuel pump and gauge not to work. if the plug looks good then most likely the fuel fump assembly is bad.

2001 chevy malibu wont start after the car runs out of gas and we put more gas


It may take 3-4 times cranking for a few seconds,
with a 5 second pause between to get fuel up to the engine. Also may have sucked up
some dirt/debris into the fuel pump after running it dry. May want to change fuel filter.
you can try to have someone bang on the bottom of the tank while someone else
cranks engine. Sometimes this will free up a stuck fuel pump. good-day!!

Power to dash, lights etc, click from engine but it wont start. was driving fine 10 min. earlier... 2003 chevy malibu..


have the battery checked all of your lights and radio will still work even with very little juice in the battery but it takes a lot to crank the engine over and sometimes the battery will just go bad no matter when it was driven last and if the alternator has gone bad it will kill a battery fairly quickly so have it check also.

My 2004 chevy malibu has gas but wont crank wont do nothing any help


make sure your battery is good. turn on your lights, if ok for a good minute or two, your battery is ok, but if nothing turns on you have a dead battery.

I was driving my car and it ran out of gas its a 98 chevy malibu so then i put gas in the car and now it wont start it'll it wascranking up but now it starts to crank up and doesnt crank up all the way...


You might want to have your fuel filter replaced. When you run a tank that low, the fuel pickup takes in debris and sediment on the bottom of the tank, which may be clogging the filter, preventing gas from flowing.

I have a 04 chevy malibu with gas gauge issues where I filled up the gas and right after the needle dropped below emoty what is wrong?


You need a fuel level sensor replaced. Might as well do the whole fuel pump while you are in there.
