Anti slosh module is bad in the instrument panel. Small PC board that pops out. Junk yard only part. Or replace the instrument panel.

My gas gauge gauge keeps jumping up and down cant tell how much gas I have


In general, gas gauges are electrical in nature. There's a float in the tank that works a variable resistor. You can wear those out, and get intermittent output, though that issue mostly causes fluctuations at certain fill levels.

Then there's a wire running from the tank sensor above all the way to your fuel gauge. If that wire is intermittent anywhere along the whole length, you'll get what you have now.

Last place, there's a battery connection at either the gauge end or at the tank end. That can also be intermittent, causing the same symptoms you're seeing.

You need to check for all three possibilities, though the first one isn't likely for your symptoms.

Why is my gas guage is going up and down in my 1999 caravan?


Could be power fluctuations to the fuel gauge sending unit, a bad sending unit or a bad gauge. The sending unit would be the most likely cause.

My 95 chevy suburban 5.7 temp. gauge fluctuates from operating temp 195 to 170 back to 195 as I drive


there are two things that can be wrong here.
1-wiring or the sensor itself may be bad.
2-you have a bad head gasket(not blown all the way)but starting to go therefore the fluctuation on the gauge itself.
does it go down when you give it gas? does it uses coolant with out leaking? let me know

The needle for the gas gauge fluctuates, it will say empty and the light is on then it will go up and say half full or full and then back down!!!


You need to check your GAS FLOAT terminal, corrosion and oxidation sometimes send an ERROR to ur gauge( DON"T WORRY no spark will happen 'cause thats only a GROUND activated wire) ! After cleaning it and nothing happens you need to bring ur car to the nearest garage mechanic to check on the GAS FLOAT itself!
Taaah!

Speedometer on my 2004 Tiburon works thens cuts down to zero. Gas gauge is doing the same thing. Just put gas in drop down to empty yet still has gas in it.


Clean the connectors on the back of the BCM and on the back of the gauge cluster.

If that doesn't work, then it could be:
- Fuel Sender & Vehicle Speed Sensor (should cause your "Check Engine" light to come on)
- Gauge Cluster
- BCM

You'll have to diagnose each of these possibilities.
