I had this problem as well. Took it to the garage and it was a $700 bill the part alone was $440 they had to drop the gas tank - and since then it's not been working right. The fan clutch went a week later another $700 bill. Picked it up and it was still making the same sound - garage replaced another sensor without charging me--picked it up and three days later the service engine light came on. Back to garage and another $80 part was needed under the hood. All this with just 52,500 miles and I keep it well maintained. Not a happy camper at all! Holding my breath but it's been only two days so far so good.

My fuel gage shows empty with the light on all the time and i just replaced the fuel pump with a brand new one and it still shows empty with the light on. What could be the problem now?


Check out the fuel level sensor, and or the guage itself. These guages do tend to out, can replace the little stepper motor on the back of it for cheap.

Check guages light keeps coming on when i am in park or have my foot on the breaks it is a 2002 chevy trailblazer.


I would check my oil pressure gauge and the oil level as well. the fuel level guage also malfunctions on those models so make sure it is working properly and not floating from full to empty that will cause the light to come on as well as overheating of the engine(low coolant levels)low oil level,low fuel level,and low charging volts from your alternator.if all is well suspect a short in dash.

I filled my gas tank with regular gas and 5 mins later the check engine light came on and the low fuel light came on. I turned the car off and let it sit for an hour. I made sure the gas cap was on...


Im faily certain you have a problem with your fuel sending unit. Im not sure how common that is with Chevy Malibus but i replaced that in my 98 jeep cherokee and that did the trick.

Gas guage not working. been told it is fuel sensor


{: ) A faulty fuel level sensor is most likely. But you must rule out first if theres' any problem with the gauge itself, like a stuck needle. A scan tool can command the cluster gauge to move at full sweep, effectively ruling out problem with the gauge. Without scan tool you can only approximate your judgement, like when you turn on your igniton, did the pointer move from fully down up to the Empty scale? Or did the needle never ever moved even a little?

the fuel level gauge just went out na dthats why the light is on. to replace it you have to replace the entire sending unit. cost is $500.00 plus to have replaced. if you can live with it and keep check on your milage, I would wait for the pump to go out.

Ajkill is right. I had the same problem with the fuel light always being on and the guage read empty no matter how much fuel is in the tank. I had to have the fuel level sensor in the tank replaced. This is something that they have to drop the tank for. It was about $400 with the part and labor at the dealership.
