When my fuel tank is full the guage registers empty


Could be a problem with the gauge in the instrument cluster, or the wiring that goes back to the tank, or the sending unit in the tank.
The sending unit has a float much like your toilet which could stick or fail to move.

The gas tank fuel guage sender of my 1995 Volvo 960 has stopped working. I have replaced this twice before with new units. What can I do to repair the old unit?


Youmight have to check if your fuel tank contains water or moisture and results in the deterioration of the unit. There is not much that can be done but to patch up the potentiometer and the readinds may be wrong.
So this time clean out your tank, check for rust wash out and replace. Fill from reputed pumps only

It defanetly sounds like a sending unit and the fuel tank needs to be removed in order to replace it and it will most likely come with a new fuel pump too.They come as a unit and there not cheap. Sorry.

940 1991 volvo estate


Your problem is fuel gauge is hanging up on the fuel pump. The slide bar/fuel sender is located inside the fuel tank alongside the fuel pump. Today I removed my fuel tank and replaced the pick up strainer on my fuel pump and previously my fuel gauge didn't work, but all I needed to do was slightly bend the slide mechanism and my fuel reading read correctly on my gauge. Previous to that I showed no reading on the dash meter.
