What you might have to do is check the gauges with a scanner.Not all scanners have this ability.The dealerships scanner can go into your body control module and work the gauges and if they work with the scanner then you can eliminate the gauge itself.The usual problem is with the fuel sending unit which incorporates the level sensor,pressure regulator,and the pump itself.So these are some of your options.Good luck.

Fuel guage sometimes read empty when there is gas in the tank?


Check that there are no holes in the float. If the fuel is getting into the float, it will give a false reading. Another thing is to check the ground on the float sensor. If it's not connected tightly, it will create a false reading too.

Gas gauge and tach do not read proper readings! What will cause this? The gas guage will peg past full when there is only quarter tank and tach reads 4500 RPM at idle


The gas tank sounds like a bad ground usually located under the car at the gas tank. I do not know but maybe they both tach and fuel gague get their ground from the same place.

Gas guage not reading accurate


Your sending unit inside of the fuel tank is probably faulty. Unfortunately you have to drop the tank to change it.

Gas guage-oxygen sensor?


The oxygen sensor has nothing to do with the fuel gauge. There are two possibilities for the gas gauge error, first it could be the in-tank gas level sensor or it could be a defective stepper motor which drives the gauge. A professional scan tool can determine the fuel level being sent by the in-tank sensor, if that disagrees with the gauge, then the stepper motor needs replacing.
