Fuel gage not working


Could be the sending unit in the tank, or the gauge on the dash. A mechanic would check the signal from the sending unit at the tank.

Gas gage is not working 1987 grand marquis


Fuel level sending unit. I hope it's not, but ya..... it's inside the fuel tank. Also called the float level.

Not an easy task unless you are ready to drop the fuel tank at home.

Some had a small access hole under the back seat so you could get to it easier, but it's not that easy to get the back seat out, and harder to get it back in.

Hope this helps.

Fuel gage stuck on full


Either there is a short in the fuel sender wiring or the sender in the tank is bad.The actual gauge is rarely bad.Good luck.


Else
The float affixed to your fuel pump in your gas tank is stuck.

It tells the dash you ALWAYS have a full tank.
You have to drop the tank, PB Blast/WD40 the float, get it to drop down.
Finally
Your unit in the tank is bad. Pull it out and move it up and down while someone looks at the gauge. If doesn't work, buy a new one. They are not that expensive.

Gas display is burnt out


Need more information......Do you mean the fuel gauge doesnt work ?...If it is actually burnt out the instrument cluster is burnt in one spot.....this is the first step in the process of complete gauge failure...it is normally the first to go...sometimes it will be the only gauge to not work....
Although if the gauge isnt working the in tank float is stuck and or fuel sending unit has failed.First make sure it has fuel in it (put in 2 gallons)...You dont want to put very much in because if it is the float you will have to remove tank.
It is best to replace the complete fuel sending unit rather than just the float...mainly because one can make the other go bad...also for some models you cant purchase the float only.........It would save you money to have the PCM scanned for fuel delivery system.this will tell you where fault is.
If you can visually see a burn place at the gauge the cluster has failed.

Toyota 4 runner gas gauge is stuck on full.


The solution to your problem most likely is the fuel gauge sending unit which is located on the fuel pump in the tank. SOMETIMES, the fuel pump and gauge are sold separately, but chances are, you may have to replace the whole assembly. Which is actually good measure, considering that you'll have the tank removed, anyway.

I hope this helps! :)

If your fuel pump is an in tank one then you have probably got the float stuck when you put it in the tank.
Let me know if this is the prob.

My 1999 Oldsmobile Alero Gas gauge and fuel system


well # 1 the full gauge when empty is a sign that your fuel pump is bad and that needs to be replaced the part about spitting the gas back out is probrobly a clog between the fuel door and the tank itself or their might be a vapor lock door that might be stuck shut so fuel cant get in im not 100%sure about that but im 100%sure that the fuel guage is the fuel pump being dead.
