    R = reserve = a couple of gallons left before empty = time to get some fuel

I have a 2007 Chrysler Pacifica with 63,000 miles. It was a 1 owner (prior to me) & was well take care of with regular maintenance. The gas gauge will Not go above the 1/2 mark when filled completely full....


I do not own a pacifica but I do know quite a bit about cars and the digital read out gets in info from the gas gauge. so if the gas gauge is incorrect so will be the read out. I would start at the sending unit for the fuel gauge I bet you will find your problem there. The sending unit is most likely located in the gas tank

1987 Nissan Maximum gas hand doesn't work & transmission is reading full but it leaks sometimes


There are three fixes possible for the gas gauge....but I would have this troubleshot by a garage:

1. The gas gauge itself does not work anymore. It could have just finally "died". Problem is, you cannot replace just the gauge. It has to be the whole instrument cluster. Having a garage shoot power TO the gauge and then shot the gauge itself will let you know if the gauge assembly is bad.

2. The fuel sending unit is bad. This means the wiring to the gas tank fuel pump/sending unit is bad and does not work. The signal is not being sent to the fuel/gas gauge. This means the fuel pump assembly needs replacing.

3. There is a wire problem somewhere between the gas tank and the dash to the fuel gauge.

The transmission leaking but still reading full just means that there is plenty of transmission fluid in the transmission. The drips or spots you are finding are not enough to "read" low enough. Unless you have a HUGE spot of tranny fluid left on the ground, I would just think about a transmission fluid filter change. This way, a new pan gasket will be installed and fresh fluid filled to the proper level will be accomplished on your car.

How do I read a 1990 De Ville Cadillac digital gas gauge


It reads like any bar type gauge, the more bars the more gas is in the tank, 2 bars is 1.4 tank and so on.

My gas hand is going a little crazy, it will go to full and stay a while then move to empty, and I just put a new fuel pump and sender in it, what should I do now ?


I can only think of two possibilities:
1) The Ground Wire (goes from the sending unit in the fuel tank to the frame of the car) is not getting a good connection or
2) The fuel gauge in the dashboard is bad.

If your description means that the change in the gas gauge is random then check the ground wire. If you have a volt-ohm meter, try checking the resistance from the wire where it attaches to the sending unit, negative side. Remove wire from sending unit first. Make sure negative wire on V_O meter is connected to frame of car. Reading should be almost zero. Anything else and the wire you are testing does not have a good connection.
If your description means that you turn the car on and the gas gauge is reading full for awhile and then goes to empty, the gas gauge is bad.

When gas tank gets to about 1/4 the car stalls when making hard or long right turns


Gas level sensors are very inaccurate, they become especially so over time. If you judge your gas level by your gauge reading - most probably by the time it shows 1/4 tank it is actually almost empty. When you make a right turn (or brake hard) the remaining gas in the tank rushes away from the gas pump intake. It usually means that you have about a gallon or less fuel left.
Solution: Set up your trip odometer every time you get your tank full, then read how many miles you traveled since your last fill up - you'd know how much gas you have left. Or replace your gas level sensor for a good new one. If you have to drop your gas tank to do that it is usually not worth the money.

Fuel gauge reads past full all the time


when the tank is full the resistance is low so the power through the gage make is read full
as the tank empties , the resistance increases so the less current means the gauge reads less until empty there is little or no power , the gauge reads empty
simple check , turn the ignition off, no power , no gauge reading

2006 envoy gas gage


your gas gauge sensor is most likley the problem on alot of new cars they measure your fuel off an average of were your float is at. like if your not moving it stays in one spot but as you move the float moves and reads the lowest amout that it is averaging and if your float keeps reading low your going to read that you have alot less gas than you really do. have you tried filling the tank all the way and see what it does? if it stays at full until you use some gas and your float starts moving your gas gauge will probley go down in that case its the fuel sensor if this dont help let me know and ill c what i can find out for you
