Sounds like a bad ground or the positive wire is rubbing ground causing this visually inspect the wires from the tank as well as use a mirror to see up over the tank to the connections at the fuel pump itself and along the body of the vehicle

My gas gauge in my 2002 Pontiac Bonnivile shows empty all the time


Fuel Gauge Troubleshooting

Fuel Gage
The IPC displays the fuel level as determined by the PCM. The IPC receives a class 2 message from the PCM indicating the fuel level percent. The fuel gage defaults to empty if:
• The PCM detects a malfunction in the fuel level sensor circuit.
• The IPC detects a loss of class 2 communications with the PCM.
When the fuel level is less than a pre-determined value, the CHECK GAGES indicator illuminates.
DTC P0462
The fuel level sensor changes resistance based on fuel level. The PCM monitors the signal circuit of the fuel level sensor in order to determine fuel level. When the fuel tank is full, the sensor resistance is high and the PCM senses a high signal voltage. When the fuel tank is empty, the sensor resistance is low and the PCM senses a low signal voltage. The PCM uses the signal circuit of the fuel level sensor in order to calculate the total remaining fuel (%) in the tank. The PCM sends the fuel level percent via the class 2 serial data circuit to the IPC in order to control the fuel gage. The fuel level information is also used for misfire and EVAP diagnostics

The fuel gauge is eratic


This problem is caused by a defective fuel level sending unit, the sending unit is inside the fuel tank and the fuel tank must be removed from the car to replace the sending unit.

Eratic shifting of gears at speeds of 55 to 75


I would check the transmission fluid level and color, should be a nice clear red color. You may need to have the filter replaced. Possibly some internal transmission problem also.

My car has eratic idle and acceleration jerking. It is a 2005 landrover freelander with 52,000 miles. Automatic transmission with a 2.5L engine.


It could be a few things. The EGR, IAC, TP sensor, vacuum leak, MAF sensor, air filter, bad ground to engine. Is the engine light on? If so were any codes retreived from it? What have you done or looked at so far?

Fuel level low symbols still shows


It's either a faulty tank sensor or a faulty fuel indicator light. Get the fuel indicator light checked first.
