Might be a sensor that tells the amount of gas in the tank!
Ask dealer or Google it!!
This is what I Googled (95 z28 fuel gauge problems)
Go read that an see if you have the same problems they all do

Good luck!!!

My polo 1.4 se's fuel gauge has sat on 3 quarters for 3 days now, not normal with the amount of driving I do daily, what could be causing the problem? It changes a bit when on a slope though


Hi Josh:
I'd start by completely filling the fuel tank.
Since you know how far you usually can go on a full tank, when you have gone about alf that distance, the gauge should show about half a tank, and when you've gone just over 3/4 of that distance, the gauge should be starting to show on the low side.
At least, if you know that the gauge is not reading correctly, you won't run out of gas if you keep track of the distance and always fill the tank completely.
Hope this helps.

I have a 1989 iroc Camaro 5.7 multiport. just installed a new engine. ok car runs fine I dive it to work and that's about 25 miles. for got to say I also put a new fuel filter and fuel pump in. about 1/4...


If you replaced fuel pump, you should have checked orientation of float to make sure it doesn't hit a baffle or anything.
You can use resistors to see if fuel gage reacts properly to the resistors, 90 ohms is full
0 ohms is empty. The wire colors for sending unit are pink and black. Take connector loose, use resistor between proper terminals, key on. If the gage reacts properly, the problem is in the gas tank.
Use a gage, check proper fuel pressure, 34--47 psi.
As far as pressure in the gas tank, check evap system where applicable or vent tube.

Gauge cluster


You can unplug the harness at the tank and see if the gauge circuit is shorted to ground between there and the dash.

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.

Fuel gauge is moving slowly to full


I'd use a couple of resistors representing full and empty. Take connector loose from fuel level sending unit at gas tank, two wires, use resistor between the proper two wires, turn key just to on, you shouldn't have to start it. If gage reacts properly to both resistors, I believe the problem is the sending unit in the gas tank. If it still doesn't function properly, have to check wiring circuits and instrument cluster. The resistor ohms, 16 ohm--and 158 ohms. These are just generic specs.
Some ford instrument clusters can do a self test. The only problem I have is, I don't which years this applies.
With the engine off, depress and hold the odometer reset button. Turn the key to the run position and hold until the gages sweep, within 5--8 seconds. Depress the reset button once to advance to each stage of the self test. Turn the ignition to the off position to exit self test. This test is w/o outside input, so if all gages sweep except the fuel gage, I suspect the instrument cluster has a problem. I'm not sure if your instrument cluster has the self test ability?

Where is my fuel pump at? on a 1995 chevy camero 3.4 yes ran the car out of gas put so in wont start now what should i do first


Your fuel pump is in the tank. Turn on the ignition, and listen if you can hear the pump run in the tank. It will only run a few seconds if the engine is not running. You can repeat this several times to prime the fuel injection.

1995 Honda Civic fuel gauge always shows full. I removed instrument cluster and moved gauge down by hand. The needle moves back to full when key is switched to acc position. I found no loose wires or bad...


Well, theres a sending unit/float in the tank that sends a signal thru wires to your instrument cluster's fuel gauge. You should have an auto electric repairperson determine where your problem lies. It's not often the needle's just 'stuck' to where you could dislodge it. More often, it's pegged overfull or underempty-signaling a shorted component upstream of the gauge.

Similar problem and found the solution:
In the back of the gauge, where the 2 coils are located, there are very tiny copper wires which connect all the resistors/diodes. they each travel from within the coil and are soldered to 3 out of the 4 mounting pins. if any of these wires are shorting out or disconnected, the gauge will malfunction.

- take the gauge and flip upside down
- temp gauge has 1 resistor (blue) and 1 diode (copper)
- fuel gauge has 2 resistors, no diodes
- 1 wire should be attached to bottom mounting pin (letter E for EMPTY)
- 1 wire should be attached to pin holding both resistors (half tank)
- 1 wire should be attached to the stand-alone ground pin (no mounting bracket)

Hope that helps!

Fuel gauge not working properly Hyundai Accent


The fuel gauge utilizes a voltage stabilizer located on the back of the instrument cluster. if it's faulty it could cause this problem. The other causes are a wire fault (short) between the gauge and the tank sending unit and the sending unit itself being corroded and stuck in the full position (the float assembly that is). One way to quickly isolate (and maybe eliminate) the problem is to get a used cluster from a wrecking yard and swap it out. If it works normally, there you go... if not you will need to access the tank sending unit (this usually, but not always, involves draining and dropping the tank to get to it. Some cars have an access panel in the body over the fuel tank for this purpose... look under the carpeting in the rear of the vehicle) Once you have access disconnect the power wire (usually red or with a red stripe), and with the key on, the gauge should drop to empty. If it doesn't, the problem is not the sending unit. Hope this helps...;-)
