It is hard to make a constructive guess but I would recommend to check your battery connections, your battery and alternator.

Sounds like the gas tank sending unit went bad.

SOURCE: gas gauge stuck under tab

I had the same problem. I carefully removed the dash panel around the dash board (it just snaps out), undid the dash board mounting screws, took out the dash board assembly, disconnected it, removed the plastic lens, and gently turned back the needle. To make sure it didn't happen again I drilled a tiny hole opposite the little post already there (next to the full side) and screwed a tiny screw into it. I then put it all back together and it has worked ever since. While I had it a part I also put a tiny screw on the temperature gauge side so it wouldn't have the same problem. Good luck.

SOURCE: FUEL TANK IS HALF FULL

their is a plunger in your tank just like the plunger or float in your toilet, if your car wont pass smog then yes check with your mech you might need a new evaporative canister or maybe a line in/out is pluged if your tank still wont register correctly my first comment would be in order to replace

SOURCE: gas gauge shows empty after filling gas tank

The gauge circuit is shunted on most cars, this is wierd, but needed to stabilize the readings... Your description sounds like normal function. Drivers would complain if the qauge were to be instant, going around corners, starting, stopping, all move fuel, and the gauge would indicate this, cauing driver alarm...Been this way for ever, although yours sounds like it is on the far side of the scale...if it reads correctly after a while, you could replace everything and you would have the same performance.

SOURCE: 2007 GMC Envoy - Gas gauge showing empty and check engine light

This is a safety feature that the vehicle brings. You need to reset the E.C.U on dealership or it will keep doing it to you. It was probably caused by one single time that you did not closed the fuel cap correctly. Good luck

Fuel gauge changes the amount of gas shown on dash gauge when below half. with engine running in park, gauge went from half to full then to light signaling low. put gas in tank(5 gallons)now shows over...


The fuel sender is in the tank and is part of the fuel pump module ( all in one). the fuel sender is a rheostat and is like a dimmer switch in you home to dim lights, the higher the level of fuel the more voltage the computer sees hence the lower the fuel the lower the voltage it sees. With the age of the car this is likely the problem. But there is a part in the instrument cluster that reads this voltage and sends power to the gauge intermittently. In older cars it was called a anti slosh module. It was there because as the car went up and down a bumpy road the gauge would read erratically. the cost can be prohibitive to fix this but if you can live with it i would. If not expect to spend 600 dollars or more to trace it down and fix it.

Gas gauge


Most likely it's the voltage stabilizer for the gauge itself... some are replaceable (plug in type), some are part of the printed circuit... if so get another cluster from a junk yard and swap it out... Hope this helps...;-)

Fuel light keeps popping up and when it does, fuel gauge drops


Sounds like a bad sending unit. It clips to the fuel pump in the tank. It's not hard to remove and pretty self explanatory if you look at it, but if you don't have any experience with fuel line quick disconnects, I wouldn' try it at home. If you do try it, remember 2 things: Run that thing as low on gas a you can first and when it comes to disconnecting the fuel lines, push, squeeze (until it clicks), then pull apart. The tank is held in by 2 or 4 13 or 15mm bolts and a few hoses and lines. Mark the position of the pump before you pull it out.

99 honda civic lx is having some unknown problems


The gas gauge problem is the simplest problem, and actually a pretty common one. The sending unit in the gas tank has a blank spot (for lack of a better word). When the gauge hits that spot, it gets no signal and goes to empty. If it does this for only a certain level of gas, this is the problem. If the level of gas is irrelavent, then it might be related to your other problems.
When the car "cuts out" you say the tach and speedometer quit working. That means you have lost electricity to those parts. I would concentrate on searching for an electrical short. The very first thing I would do is thoroughly clean the battery cables. Electrical problems are the most difficult car problems to diagnose, so, Good Luck.
