No, but if you put fuel and the gauge shows empty, then you have a loose connector near the gas tank. If car doesnt start, then it is for sure that the connector of the fuel pump is loose. Reconnect the fuel pump and you are gonna be fine.

I have a 2002 chevy tahoe changed fuel pump and filter. it still wont start when you turn the key over it reads empty but we put 6 gallons of gas in it what could be wrong?


Check the fuel pump relay or the fuses. Could also be a filter near the injection rail. You might have a fuel cut off swithc. I don't know where it would be, but your owners manual would tell you. Good luck anyways.

Why is gas gauge not working correctly since fuelpump was replaced.


Is this a flex fuel vehicle. If so, call the dealership and ask the parts dept. if there is a gauge module (perhaps behind the instrument cluster). This may be the culprit and needs to be replaced.

03 Dodge Stratus ran out of gas and now wont start


There is no reset.
The fuse and pump relay should be in the fuse box near the battery.
You may have to disconnect the filter or the rail to let the air out of the system. And you may have plugged up the screen in the tank.

Imaccurate fuel gauge


I would check the fuses for a blown fuse and check the fuel pump relay. It sounds like you aren't getting power back to the fuel pump/sending unit.

You may have a defective fuel level sendigng unit or wiring. It should be part of the warranty coverage. Check with your friendly dealer :)

Replace fuel pump-stil no start


Was it empty when you parked it? (i.e. did someone drain the tank, and put sugar in it? something like that?) If not... the fuel filter could be clogged. Check that. Most cars of this age are fuel injected, so the fuel at the fuel filter will be under high pressure. Chiltons manuals usually discuss how to de-pressurize the line if needed. But you probably already dealt with this changing the fuel pump. Good to hear it's turning over. After (finding) the filter... check to see if any fuel is making it through the filter. Turn the ignition to "on" and it will likely start the fuel pump and spray fuel everywhere (if you disconnect the filter output.).... besides having a mess, you will know your fuel pump works. (Try attaching a hose from the fuel filter output to a bucket to prevent a mess and possible fire please ). Can you hear the fuel pump running? Could be a blown fuse for the fuel pump.

2000 Ford Expedition Starting problem


If the fuel gauge drops off when you are driving then its a sending unit problem that means you have to drop the tank and replace the float and sending unit. This is a common problem for alot of cars because of cheap gas. If you have to drop the tank check the fuel pump canster for dirt because of cheap gas. Replace the fuel pump strainer and fuel pump filter. If the car or truck has about 100,000 miles you might want to change the fuel pump at that time also just to cover your back. If you take it to a shop they will charge you at least $900 to start. But if you do it yourself it will cost you about $200 dollars maybe alittle more.

If the car has over 100,000 miles on it, you may need to replace the distributer. I don't think the bad gas caused this issue I think it may just be a coincdence. But if you already changed the plugs, wires, distributor cap, and rotor, I would definetly check the distributor.
