Usually the float in the gas tank goes bad 1ST. Like the float in the toilet. Rarely a gauge goes bad.

I have a 2002 lincoln ls that has gas guage reading only a quarter tank when full. I know there is 2 pumps on this car, one is the primary pump under passenger back seat and a jet transfer pump on drivers...


Fuel pumps outside the gas tank have nothing to do with fuel gauge readings. There is a fuel level sender unit inside the tank with a float which supplys variable ground circuit to the gauge. If you can find the wire to this unit, you can ground it to see if the gauge now goes to full. If so, sender unit in tank is bad, or has bad wiring/ground.

Fill up gas tank gauge goes to full as I use gas the gauge goes down to 1/4 tank but no lower I have ran out of gas because i thought i Had A 1/4 tank of gas this is on a 2005 silverado


Sounds like the float in the tank is faulty, or the gauge on the dash.
You should be able to unplug the circuit to the sending unit and check both components.

Fuel gauge problem


Could be either one.
You could disconnect the harness at the tank and ground the gauge circuit to see if the gauge will go to full. If it does chances are the problem is the sending unit in the tank.

When my fuel tank is full the guage registers empty


Could be a problem with the gauge in the instrument cluster, or the wiring that goes back to the tank, or the sending unit in the tank.
The sending unit has a float much like your toilet which could stick or fail to move.

2001 cadillac eldorado, gas guage goes to full


to test if its the float in the gas tank, use a rubber hamer and hits 2-3 times than check guage. If the level is still wrong its the guage.

87 f150 dual tanks fuel gauge doesn't work how can I troubleshoot this with a multimeter; what voltages/ohms values are normal


I have a1987 F-150. The gas gauge for the rear tank always indicate that the tank is full when I know it is not. I try to put gas in but the tank won't let any gas in. Is there some type of sensors inside the tank that won't allow the tank to be filled or is this a guage problem?

MY GAS GAGE ON MY 1999 CHEVY VENTURE DOESN'T WORK. IT ALWAYS SAYS FULL. DO I NEED TO REPLACE THE WHOLE GAS TANK?


NO, on the fuel pump assembly is a swinging type arm with a float on the bottom end and some metal teeth on the other, as the fuel leval goes up or down these teeth contact a plate on the body of the fuel pump assemby that send a signal to the gauge. Now either your float arm is sticking, guage is bad, or the sending unit is bad. I would suggest the sending unit, it is availble as a repair unit, you dont have to buy the whole fuel pump. The gauges usually last the life of the car.

My gas gage is either on full or once in a while 2002 buick regal


there is a float in your gas tank kinda like the float in your toilet. Sometimes they stick and if the bell goes off then back.. it prob. from the gas splashing in the tank. I wouldnt' be concerned too much.
