My gas gauge read that I had a quarter of a tank and about 2 minutes later it dropped down to empty


when it dropped to empty did it run out of gas or were you able to get to a gas station and put gas in,if so did the gauge read above empty.its possible that the float in the tank or the needle on the dash momentarily stuck for what ever reason and it may not happen again.

I have a 2004 pontiac montana. for about two years the fuel guage would fold over and read 125 degrees when the tank is full. it woulld stay there until tank was empty and the needle would drop to empty,...


It could be a bad fuel gauge in the dash unit, but....
Usually it's "The bad".
The fuel level sending wipe arm and windings on the fuel sender wear and send erratic readings.The only cure is a replacement fuel gauge sender.
The check engine light should not be related to the erratic fuel readings.
"The good".
If you have over 200,000kms or 120,000 miles on your van you need a new fuel pump anyway,so have a complete assembly put in which will have a new fuel sender on it.

Fuel gauge registers full when filled with gas....drive 20mi and then drops to zero...still gas in the tank


The sender unit in the tank is the most likely cause. To test the panel unit, remove the wire from the fuel tank unit and gound it. The panel gauge needle should move up full scale to hot. Remove the wire from the ground and the gauge should return to empty. If this test is ok, the tank unit needs to be replaced.

the buffer plates in the tank seem to be loosely held! so sometimes they fall on the sender unit,causing the gauge to drop!!!!! when the vehicle is shaken!!!! remove that tank and have the plates checked!!!!

Gas Gauge won't move


Replace the fuel sensor / sending unit, it is inside the gas tank, it is a lot of work to drop the gas tank, I have done it on other cars... If you want to do it make sure the tank is almost empty it is very heavy with all that gas inside make sure there is no open flames or cigarretes close
Good Luck
