Fuel gage drops to empty while driving

I have a 2006 mustang gt and the fuel gage drops while driving and then raises back to position. I took the car and had it checked and they told me that it was the fuel pump and sending unit. Both of these parts were replaced and it is still doing the same thing.

I had the same problem during a race on a road course. It straightened out on the way back to town that evening. I had a nearly full tank, but it showed empty. I have a double pump Shelby system that was installed by a Ford dealer. I also assume this is a short in the wiring from the sender. I have had no further trouble with it so I have not tried to solve it. Intermittent shorts are the hardest to troubleshoot. If you find it let us know where it was.

Usually this is the fuel sending uint alone not the fuelpump. but since you did both. the only thing left to check is a loose wire at the connector sometimes make connection sometimes not make sure to ck the wires at the fuel pump connector and the instrument cluster.

I filled my gas tank with regular gas and 5 mins later the check engine light came on and the low fuel light came on. I turned the car off and let it sit for an hour. I made sure the gas cap was on...


Im faily certain you have a problem with your fuel sending unit. Im not sure how common that is with Chevy Malibus but i replaced that in my 98 jeep cherokee and that did the trick.

99 mustang fuel gage stuck on half, low fuel light works


If the gauge remains in one position, on or off, full or empty, then it may be a bad gauge, or a faulty voltage regulator for the gauge. If the instrument panel is removed, there is a printed circuit on the back which ties to all gauges and lights. Check it for breaks or corrosion. The voltage regulator should be mounted to the same area and supplies regulated voltage to the fuel gauge. Hope this helps!

Power Window Issue


Not sure if you tried this already but it may help. There is a way to reset the windows. I do this every so often when mine won't close all the way.

Close the doors. Roll the windows all the way down. Then pull the button to roll them up and once they go up hold the button up for a few seconds (5 secs?) and they should go up a little bit. Do this for each side.

I do this every time I sense too much wind noise when driving.

Sounds like the sending unit is bad, which is in the gas tank.
