You need to replace what is called the *sending unit* its located in the gas tank they usually go bad after many many years that the part is around $40 used junk yard or $100 and up new parts store plus labor should not exceed more than another $100 but make sure when its getting replaced the gas tank is almost empty your mechanic will thank you for this.

My heater isnt working, the temperature gage flucuates, and it keeps telling me it has low coolant even though I just added coolant


low coolant sensor is probably just dirty. cold air could also indicate n air bubble in the line. could also be thermostat. try that first.

you either have a faulty oil pressure switch or you have poor oil pressure.if you find the oil pressure switch remove it and install a manuel oil pressure guage there. then you will see if it is the actual oil pressure weak or if it is the switch.

My gas gauge works (not incredibly accurate, but works). When i stop for more than a few seconds the gauge goes to empty. when i start moving it goes back to full and slowly comes down to where the gas...


As far as the gas gauge level goes, it sounds to me like it could be the float ball system that is inside of the gas tank, which is connected to the fuel pump.I dont think your guage in the dash is broke, but i could be wrong. Sounds like something in the fuel pump area

Fuel level sensor in tank bad????


Yes it is all one unit, and yes that is what the problem is. don't use aftermarket parts, use OEM, (Delco Remy) they are much better quality.

99 honda civic lx is having some unknown problems


The gas gauge problem is the simplest problem, and actually a pretty common one. The sending unit in the gas tank has a blank spot (for lack of a better word). When the gauge hits that spot, it gets no signal and goes to empty. If it does this for only a certain level of gas, this is the problem. If the level of gas is irrelavent, then it might be related to your other problems.
When the car "cuts out" you say the tach and speedometer quit working. That means you have lost electricity to those parts. I would concentrate on searching for an electrical short. The very first thing I would do is thoroughly clean the battery cables. Electrical problems are the most difficult car problems to diagnose, so, Good Luck.
