This problem is caused by a defective gas gage sending unit (also called a fuel level sensor), the sending unit is located inside the gas, you must remove the tank from the Van to serive the part.

Gas gauge not working

My gauge started acting funny. When filled it would go to zero, come up to normal and then go back to empty. It was the fuel sending unit and GGMC has a bulletin on it, It cost me $128.00 at the dealers

1999 dodge grand caravan was runing great park it then went out later to go somewhee it wont start making a funny pump sound on the passner side its is low on oil and what kink does it take

sometimes the gas gauge wont work right and show more gas than you have. my 94 caravan does the same thing. i suggest putting 5 gal of gas in the tank and see then if it starts. as for the oil... if you low and have been for a while just take it in for an oil change and ask them what they put in.

1987 ford ranger v6 EFI doesnt seem to be getting gas to the cylinders to fire?

Is there gas in the vehicle? Not funny, could be a faulty fuel gauge! If known to have fuel, under the hood ( with the key on) find the fuel rail test valve(looks like a tire air valve) push in the needle(wear safety glasses)if gas comes out you know your getting gas that far.(also check fuses for fuel pump etc.) Need to install a fuel gauge on the test valve and check pressure. If pressure is O.K. need to check fuses for injectors(pulse) Good luck best regards.

Odometer is not working

The output speed sensor maybe unpluged. Its the sensor on the side of the trans that is closest to the left tire. It will have 2 wires in the connector.
