The most likely problem is the sender unit in the tank is stuck.
Sender units are relatively cheap and easy to change.
Autozone probably carry them on the shelf.

SOURCE: Gas gauge for 1983 nissan truck died

Common problem. I have an '83 and '84, and the gas gauge is broken in both. The manual (Chilton) says replace the sensor, but you have to drop the tank and open it up to do this.

I just watch the odometer and keep a spare gallon in the back...

My fuel gauge reads backwards and only travels part of the way. how do I fix it?


How did you check your fuel gauge? The "Universal" fuel sending unit could be a problem.

1983 S10 running rough


The main problem is that you have attempted to repair that 2.8. The new plugs and wires are worth more than the engine. That being said, it is a timing issue. Find someone with an old-school timing light and adjust from there.

96 s10 2.2 4cyl. running lean . It has new fuel pump and fuel filter. I've checked the converter, new 195 degree thermostat,changed fuel regulator,changed front 02 sensor, changed coils and Diagnostic tool...


I know you said new fuel pump and filter but I would recheck the fuel pressure. Drive the vehicle with the fuel pressure gauge on it and see if the pressure drops after 10 minutes.

Gas gauge for 1983 nissan truck died


it is unlikely to be the fuel gauge, look instead to the sending unit. a wire probably is loose or corroded, if you know about how much fuel you should have, then remove the negative cable from the battery and do a ohms test on the sending unit. (low ohms w/ full tank= good, high ohms w/ low fuel= good). DO NOT attempt this with the battery connected as it could FRY your meter or risk fire.
