Why is gas gauge not working correctly since fuelpump was replaced.

Is this a flex fuel vehicle. If so, call the dealership and ask the parts dept. if there is a gauge module (perhaps behind the instrument cluster). This may be the culprit and needs to be replaced.

1982 chey van , none of the dash gauges work , have changed out gas tank sending unit , brown wire looks good , fus looks good

If none of the gauges work, there is a power problem.
The gas tank sender grounds the fuel gauge and the temp sender on the engine block grounds the temp gauge.
Could be a wiring harness issue or a problem with the printed circuit board too.

Gas gauge don't work. says it's full all the time. new sending unit,gastank,fuelpump, and fuel fiter.

I don't have the specs on your dash gauge. You would want to run an OHMmeter to test resistence at the dash gauge, then check the Ohms at the wiring from the fuel sending unit. The change in the Ohms from the fuel tank is what moves the dash gauge.

Best I can help with is a chassis diagram at, FREE, when you register your car.

You can go to a Salvage yard with an Ohmmeter and test a fuel gauge on-the-car to see if it has different resistance. This would indicate whether your gauge is good or not.

My olds silhoutte i ran out of gas and now i have gas it jirks and i cycle the key 3 time i have to oump gas peddle the it will start but soon i i quit pumping it dies and takes a wile to start again

This sounds like the fuelpump is bad, it may have been on its way out or when you ran out of gas it sucked up all the dirt at the bottom of the gas tank. it sounds like the pump cant produce the correct amout of pressure needed to keep the engine running. if you have a fuel pressure gauge you can test the pressure and know for sure its a bad fuelpump. you would connect the gauge to the valve on the fuel rail and then turn the ignition on and there should be 55psi of pressure. if the pressure is lower by more than 4psi or no pressure then replace the pump which is located inside the gas tank. i think you will find that the fuel pump is bad. good day. hope this is helpful.

Fuel gauge will not registra fuel amount, what type censor do I need

Your going to have to drop the fuel tank by running the Van as low on gas as you can get it to make it easier and lighter. Disconnect the filler neck by taking out the four bolts around the gas cap. Underneath you will have to disconnect the fuel lines and the take the two bands off the tank. You will need help to lower the tank if it is still has gas in it. Once you have the tank dropped and out from under the Van you can remove the sending unit. Installation is the opposite.

04 chevy avalanche , takes 2 times the rotations of starter to turn the engine over but still starts .. Changed plugs and wires and tips maybe fuel pump injectors?

You are on the right track, the problem which is common is the fuelpump, the problem is , theres an internal antiflow valve the goes bad inside the pump, what happens is the fuel runs back into the tank and empties the lines and injector rail, when you go to start the truck it now take time for it to pnump fuel back through the lines to fuel rail and injectors and pressurize, so it take so cranking to get going. a little neat trick to be sure is to turn key on then off three times and then it should fire up, if it does then its the fuelpump, you will need to drop the tank and replace the fuelpump asm, the pump will still operate, we have customers that have had this problem for a couple of years and still havent repaired it due to the cost, they dont mind the long crank time to start, if you are going to repair drive until gas is about empty, this will help alot when its time to drop the tank,heres a picture of the fuelpump asm, hope this is helpful, have a good day.johnjohn2_13.jpg
