These are usually on top of your gas tank. And they are often not easy to get to.

SOURCE: wrong reading on fuel gauge

Normally this problem is due to a bad sending unit. The sending unit is the actual device which transmits the level of fuel in the tank to your fuel gauge. The most common cause is a stuck float. The device works by means of a flotation device, often made of a petroleum resistant plastic encasing a foam or cork "float, " which is attached to a light weight metal arm. The arm moves as the float raises and lowers with the level of fuel. This arm connects to a switch which increases and decreases resistance in the circuit. If the arm is stuck or if the float is allowing fuel in it you will get an inaccurate reading. A "logged" float (one filled with fuel) usually reads below the level, whereas an arm which is sticking will read above the level. Now, if the gauge has been reading this way since the car was brand new, the other likely cause is that the needle may have been improperly placed on the gauge at the factory, or the windings in the gauge may be under or over wound causing the inaccurate reading. If you are mechanically inclined you may be able to replace the sending unit yourself. Keep in mind this can be a dangerous procedure for a first time mechanic as it may involve removing the fuel tank from the vehicle. Some vehicles offer access to the upper portion of the fuel tank via an opening located in the trunk under the trunk mat/carpet or under the back seat. If this is the case removal of the fuel tank is not normally necessary, but you will still be working with the fuel tank. If you are able to do this procedure in the vehicle, keep in mind you will first want to disconnect power to the fuel pump and sending unit. You can disconnect the negative battery cable, but I believe on an the kadette you will need to obtain a special cable from your local auto part supply to maintain power to the ECU or PCM to prevent damage to the computer or loss of programming. At the very least remove the fuel pump relay and disconnect any fuse/relay related to the dash gauges prior to beginning this operation. Also be sure to remove the fuse for any possible ignition source inside your vehicle, such as dome and courtesy lights. Keep cell phones away from the work area as well. If you use a "trouble light" be sure it is marked as safe for use near fuel fumes. Keep doors or windows of the vehicle open to allow vapors to escape so you don't suffer any ill effects and to further reduce ignition hazards. If you must remove the fuel tank, practice good safety. Do not be under the tank at any time. Be sure to remove it with very little fuel in it. Go slowly and be sure you don't break any wires or lines. It is a very involved process and may be best left to a certified mechanic or at least one who is very experienced. Keep me posted and let me know if this helps!

SOURCE: Gas gauge in the dash malfunctioning - 1990 Nissan Hardbody truck

It sounds like the float on the sending unit is sinking. Don't know what the float is made of, but over time, it will soak up gas and start to get heavy. This would cause your problem. I don't think it's the gauge, but if you want to test it, disconnect the wires at the tank. The gauge will either go to full or empty. If you ground the sending wire, the gauge should respond the opposite way it was. good luck

I've got an opel kadett cub 1991 model,it seems to struggle in a hill and when its hot it switches its self,and I have to wait for it to cool down and start it again. What might be the problem


check the timing, improper would cause loss of power and relate to heating. make sure you do not have a brake dragging. Coils (spark generator) often quit when they get hot if going bad. sometimes you can feel if it is heating up excessively by touching it after it is on for awhile. check coolant, oil, and compression for leakage or mixing= head gasket problem.

How difficult is it to replace the oil pump in a 1995 camaro v8?


GM Camaro/Firebird 1993-1998 Repair Guide Fuel Pump - REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
(see Figures 1 and 2)
The fuel pump is part of the fuel sender assembly located inside the fuel tank.
  1. Release the fuel system pressure and disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Drain the fuel tank, then raise and safely support the vehicle.
  3. Remove the fuel tank from the vehicle.
  4. Clean the area surrounding the sender assembly to prevent contamination of the fuel system.
  5. To remove the fuel sender from the tank, remove the fuel sender assembly nuts and retaining ring. Carefully remove the sending unit from the fuel tank. Discard the O-rings.

Fig. 1: Exploded view of the fuel tank and sender assembly
  1. If necessary, separate the fuel pump from the sending unit assembly.

Fig. 2: Fuel sender and pump assembly


To install:
  1. If removed, install the fuel pump to the sending unit. If the strainer was removed, it must be replaced with a new one.
  2. Inspect and clean the O-ring mating surfaces.
  3. Install a new O-ring in the groove around the tank opening. If applicable, install a new O-ring on the fuel sender feed tube.
  4. Install the fuel sender assembly as follows:
    1. The fuel pump strainer must be in a horizontal position, and when installed, must not block the travel of the float arm. Gently fold the strainer over itself and slowly position the sending assembly in the tank so the strainer is not damaged or trapped by the sump walls.
  5. Install the retaining ring and nuts, then tighten the nuts to 63 inch lbs. (7 Nm).
  6. Install the fuel tank assembly.
  7. Lower the vehicle.
  8. Fill the fuel tank, tighten the fuel filler cap and connect the negative battery cable.
  9. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position for 2 seconds, OFF for 10 seconds, then back to the ON position. Check for fuel leaks.

Hope this help (remember rated this post). Good luck.

Gas leaking from tank


This sounds like you have a leak at the fuel pump and sender unit, either in the unit mount or in a fuel line. Check under your back seat for an access panel if you have one then remove it and look at the pump and sender mount to see what is leaking, you may have to start the engine to get it to leak as it may only leak under pressure, hope this helps, let me know
