The sending unit inside the fuel tank is at fault doing this to your gauge

It has a reostat that measures the amount of fuel in the tank. The float has a arm that rides along the reostat giving out the measurement. The arm is you can say waving up and down from a bad float that has no ablility to stay steadily bouyant no longer

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.

70 c10 fuel gauge


You need to check voltage at the gauge on the dash.
They would stop at random places with the key off.
You can disconnect the sending unit in the tank and ground the gauge to test.
Some models read empty with high resistance from the sender, some are opposite depending on the sending unit. The sending unit in the tank is a resistance bar for the ground circuit.

2000 Olds Intrigue fuel gauge reads randomly incorrect


The Olds Intrigue along with several other models had issues with the sending units in the fuel tank.
the resistor board and the metal contacts wear and lose contact.
The sending unit will need to be replaced.
The fuel tank will need to be dropped in order to replace it.

Signifique code p-1627


Trouble code P1627 means: PCM A/D Conversion Malfunction

This is a fuel sending unit code and it directly related to you goofy gas gauge. This is a common problem in 2nd Gen Isuzus. The fuel sending unit needs to be replaced. Most places will tell you that you must replace the entire fuel pump assembly module but you can buy just the sending unit.

Other faults to refer this problem and other c
odes: P0141, P0300, P0404, P1404, P1627, with this synthoms:
hesitates sometimes on takeoff, gas gauge gives random readings(sometimes will read empty, or full, or somewhere in between), Fuel light flashes sometimes.

Hope helps.

Fuel gauge is stuck on the back side of top pin.


you can remove the cluster from the car pull the plastic cover off fill your car up so you will know where to put the full level at remover the pin simply by pulling on it it may seem like if wont come off but that is because it is supposed to be tight put it back in at empty and replace the cluster if the needle goes to full then it is right if not you put the pin in wrong retry till it reads full if the neddle just doesnt move then replace fuel pump

Gas gauge reads full when underway. However, when


Most likely it a bad fuel level sensor on you fuel pump. You will have to replace the fuel pump as that is the only way to replace the sensor for you fuel gauge. The sensor is built into the fuel pump. The contacts on the sensor become corroded over time and cause the sensor to malfunction causing your fuel gauge to read full all the time. I have a 2001 Montana extended version that had the same problem. In order to know when I needed to fill the tank, I would completely fill it each time I put fuel in and reset my trip odometer. I would go 400 miles on the tank before I would refuel until we were able to replace the fuel pump.

Incorrect fuel gauge reading or no reading


While it could be a bad gauge, as it's an electric gauge, most likely it's the sending unit inside the gas tank. Make sure your fuses are good, and your ground wires are clean and tight, especially under the car. If all that checks out, you might want to drop the gas tank and pull out the sending unit.

Fuel gauge doesnt read correctly?


You'll have to go back & try to look up on top of tank where the fuel lines etc., attach to pump & sending unit assy. Will be a single wire or strap connected usually on ring around sending unit area.
