Could be a loose wire, bad sending unit, or other electrical problem.

Worst case is that the tank must be dropped to replace the sender.

While you are in there, best to also replace the fuel pump as labor will be the same.

My gas gauge does not work, what could be wrong with it?


In most cases, the reason why a gas gauge might stop working is because the sending unit located insider the fuel tank may have worn out. In some cases, this may require you to replace the fuel pump as well, because a lot of times they come with the fuel level sending unit attached. Otherwise, if your car is indeed fuel-injected and you are planning on dropping the fuel tank and changing the sending unit, I would also recommend changing the fuel pump as well, for good measure. I hope this helps! :)

Fuel gauge not working


The problem is almost always caused by a defective fuel level sending unit inside the fuel tank. To replace the sending unit you must remove the gas tank from the car and replace the fuel pump module which contains the fuel level sending unit. Repair cost is about $600.00 USD's

My gas guage doesn't work in my truck. 1994 ford ranger,single cab,4.0L V6.


The most common reason is the sending unit inside the gas tank, look under the truck and locate the fuel tank, look for wires going to the tank,the wires will lead to top of the tank, unplug connector and fuel gauge should go to full, if the gauge moves then its the sending unit inside the tank, this would mean the wiring is good and the gauge also works and that leave the sending unit. good day.

Fuel guage stopped working?


it's either the gauge or the sending unit in the tank. I would wager that the sending unit is bad in the tank, or the wires leading to it.

It's possible the fuel gauge itself is bad, but try the fuel tank first.

You'll have to drop the fuel tank to access the sending unit.

Where is the fuel pump located on a 1994 mazda 626


In the gas tank. Also referred to as the "fuel sending unit" Which is the pump, screen and sender (float that sends the signal to the gas gauge) If it just stopped working get under the car and hit the tank a few times with a hammer. You don't need to hit it hard. Usually a few whacks will free up the pump and it will work again for a bit. At least long enough to get to a repair shop and save the tow cost.

The gas guage does not work on my '97 S10 pickup (it shows about 3/4 tank.) Is this something I can fix myself ? If so, what parts do I need and what will it cost, approx? If NOT, how much will it cost to...


The level sensor in the tank has gone bad. You can buy a fuel sending unit for about $100 (you used to have to replaced the whole tanks for hundreds of dollars, but they had so many issues they started selling the sensors on their own).

You can fix it on your own, but you're going to want the tank to be pretty much empty before hand.

Here is an example of replacing one on a S-10 blazer. Should be similar for your truck:

Fuel gauge stop working


Most likely the sending unit has gone bad.Removal of the tank is how to change the sending unit in the tank,It may only be available with the fuel pump assembely.To check it,disconnect the fuel pump at the fuel tank.With the key on,the gauge should peg out past full.

Hi, this is a sending unit issue. you can try adding some Sea Foam additive to the tank. this may release the sender. if the additive doesn't work, replace the fuel level sending unit.

Can't say for sure since you did not include year of your car but more than likely it's the fuel sending unit that requires replacement. Some years you can replace just the level sensor on the fuel sending unit but both repairs involve dropping the gas tank and opening to remove the fuel sending unit.
