Question about Dodge Ram 2500

1 Answer

Fuel gauge is not responding. I have dropped the tank and pulled the assembly out of the tank. There is a part of the assembly that appears to move up and down inside of a bracket, (this is not the float), is this part supposed to move up and down? the sock filter is attached to the bottom of the moving part, if that helps to understand the location.

Erratic fuel gauge.


Could be a faulty sending unit in the tank or the gauge on the dash.

Gas needle wont move


If it is showing that it is empty, the float may have sank. However, the cause could be the gauge in the dash or the sender and the sender is in the tank. It is not easy to change because you have to drop the tank. It is cheaper to replace the sender than it is to change the dash because the dash guages are all on one unit. However there are tests that can be run to see what the issue is and the tests are done using meters and jumpers etc to see if the guage responds to those. Then they know whether it is the sender or the guage.

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.

The current to the sender can't be allowed to be DC because it could spark and blow up.
So they use a ******** or oscillator to turn it into AC. That could be the problem. It is usually mounted near the gauge.

When I fill my gas tank on my 2000 Dodge intrepid, the fuel gauge will move from full, drop to empty and then back to full again. It does this over and over until the tank is down to about 3/4 full.


HI, the fuel gauge sending unit is malfunctioning. this is located inside the fuel tank and, it is part of the fuel pump assembly. replacing this failing component will fix this issue.

Spuratic fuel gauge


the fuel gauge and fuel pump is one assembly in the fuel tank. You will need to drop the fuel tank. May be a loose connection or faulty sending unit
