THE FUEL SENDERS ARE PROBLEMATIC DUE TO THE NEWER FUELS, THEY CAUSE THE FUEL SEDING UNIT RHEOSTAT GRID TO WEAR FASTER, THEN THE FUEL GAUGE READS ERRATIC OR NOT AT ALL, TO REPLACE THIS PART U MUST REPLACE THE WHOLE FUEL PUMP MODULE ASSEMBLY WHICH INCLUDES THE SENDER, THE FUEL TANK MUST BE DROPPED OUT OF THE CAR, HERE ARE THE INSTRUCTIONS FOR DOING THIS JOB, IT WILL TAKE ABOUT 4 HOURS AT HOME, HE4LP FROM A FRIEND IS A MUST.
Instructions Things You'll Need:

  • Rag
  • Screwdriver
  • Hammer (if needed)
  1. Step 1 Know that in most cases the fuel tank must be off the vehicle and lying on the ground so that you can remove the fuel pump. A few cars have a door in the floor of the vehicle that allows access to the fuel pump, but not many.
  2. Step 2 Look to see what is holding the fuel pump on. If there is a ring, unscrew it to remove the fuel pump. If the ring is very tight, you may need to use a hammer to hit a flat head screwdriver against the ridges of the ring to dislodge it. If screws are holding on the fuel pump, remove those.
  3. Step 3 Clean around the fuel pump with a clean rag and remove all dirt and debris. Lift up the fuel pump carefully, while taking care not to knock any dirt, debris or gasket material into the tank. Fuel will drain out of it, so hold it above the hole to allow all of the fuel to drain back into the tank.
  4. Step 4 Make sure there are no sparks, fire, cigarettes or anything else that could ignite the fuel in the vicinity. You may spill some fuel, and will definitely release fumes into the air, which could catch fire easily.
The new part is dealer only and is about $300

Dodge nitro fuel cap


You stated "key in and key out", I'm assuming that your car has a locking gas cap. If that's the case, turn the key to the right (clockwise), once the key stops, hold it in the far right position with your right hand, then grab the gas cap with your left hand and turn it clockwise. That should do it. Hope this helps. If I was able to FixYa, please rate my answer. Thanks.
