Verify the canister for clogging, when you try to refuel it and clicks means that the tank is full or you have ecess gases inside the tank be careful when pumping gas into it.

Fuel gauge reads full when near empty and empty when near full


It's probably the sending unit in the fuel tank it is mounted in the tank alone with the fuel pump. Hope this helps.

The gas gauge on my 2001 Nissan Altima shows full when filled up, but only tets to 1/2 full when it is near empty. Suggestions?


Either the fuel tank sender in the tank is bad and needs replacement, or the fuel gauge is faulty. I would bet the one in the tank is probably bad, because that's usually the case. Find the connection at the fuel tank, disconnect it and use a VOM to get a resistance reading while the tank is empty and reading 1/2. It should match the specs.

Fuel gauge reads correctly then goes to empty


9 times out of 10 the fuel pump/level sender assembly is the cause. Sometimes the gauge pod is faulty, and there have been cases where there were either poor connector pin fit issues and/or chaffed/melted/cut wires in the harness that leads back to the fuel pump. It is an extremely common fault and would be surprised if the pump/level sender assembly wasn't the cause.

I hope this info helps!

On my 2001 GMC jimmy sls,when the fuel guage gets near half full it drops to empty and lately when really full it reads empty until a few gallons are gone. What is the problem and how do I fix it?


you probably have a bad fuel level sensor in the fuel tank.you will have to remove the fuel tank to replace the sensor.the contacts on the sensor will break causing the fuel gauge to be inacurate.you can buy the sensor without having to buy the whole fuel pump assembly.

Fuel pump replacement procedure


Did you check the fuel pump relay switch? (behind R-headlight, from radiator, 3rd over [3.1 V6])
They have caused many unnecessary pump replacements.

As for the pump; You will need to drop the tank, but emptying it isn't required.
First: Disconnect the battery.

There are 2 straps holding the tank to the vehicle, and once out you'll pull the sending unit at the top of the tank.
* Remove the electrical connections before opening the fuel lines...redundant, I know...but safe.

Should the weight of a full tank be an issue, a cheap hand-pump from Autozone will connect to the primary fuel line in order to transfer the fuel to containers (or another vehicle).
