Most likely the sending unit in the tank is bad. Most units drop the gauge to empty though. I would check voltage and continuity of the wire first. You can access the fuel fuel from the front passenger side of the tank, you have to remove the instrument panel to get access to the other end of the wires to be checked.

SOURCE: my 2008 chevy malibu fuel gauge dose not read only

this is caused by a defective gas gage sending unit, the sending unit is part of the fuel pump module inside the gas tank, the gas tank must be removed to replace the fuel pump module that also contains the sending unit.

Had the exact same issue with my 07 malibu...took it to a trusted mechanic and it ended up being a bad communication module...module was about 650 and the total was about 800...that resolved my issue.

If the signal from the sending unit is correct, the problem would be in the gauge on the dash.

Fuel gauge goes down at stop but rises again when accelerating.


Needle should move a little bit upon stop/go.If it is a lot would have to say it is the potentiometer in the sending unit fuel pump.

Fuel gage is not working


Had the same problem with my 05 malibu. Change your fuel pump cus the pump, fuel filter and fuel gauge sending unit are all one piece. A good indication is that after fueling the gauge will go to full, drive 2-5 miles and drops to empty. If the gauge is totaly unresponsive, check the ground.

Fuel gauge wraped around to full


Fuel gauge measures resistance of potentiometer coil in tank.
If you pull wire at tank unit, and short it, it should read full.
With wire off completely, should read totally empty.
If not, gauge bad.
If ok, then tank unit bad.
