This could be the instrument cluster or more likely the sending unit has gone bad. The sending unit is located in the tank and is part of the fuel pump assembly. It is a fairy intensive job. A normal shop will charge around 600-700 dollars to fix this. It may be easier to reset the mileage counter every time you fill up and then always fill up before the 250 mile marker. I hope this helps!

Burping noise from gas cap, and fuel irregularity once below 1/4 tank


theres two plugs on the fuel pump. one is for pump and one is for gauge if you take pump out of tank and put a volt meter on the two outer prongs in plug then the two inner two of them will read the same when yoou move the level up and down and when you put meter on other two it will change when you move level or the level part of pump isnt working correctly. my old tahoe did that and when it would get to a 1/4 of a tank i knew it was almost out of gas.

My gas light not working and it cut off wfen i get to 1/4 tank


By gas light I am assuming you are talking about your gas gauge that tells you how much gas you have. This is probably your fuel pump level sensor. The fuel pump has a float mounted on the sending unit which floats to the top of your tank when it's full and gradually decends into the tank as you use up your gas. Most commonly, the float builds up residue that in your tank which causes it to stick in one place which can explain why it's cutting off at a 1/4 tank. I hope this helps you solve the problem.

Front tank fuel gauge not working


If the gauge works on the rear tank but not the front, the problem is most likely the sending unit in the front tank. You will have to drop the tank to change it. I guess what I would do is, set your trip meter to zero when you fill the front tank. Then, run that tank to the point where the truck is starting to run out of gas and then switch to rear tank. Keep track of how far you can go on the front tank. Then when you refill the front tank reset the trip meter and switch tanks about 20 miles before you think it's going to run out. It's not a good idea to run those pumps dry. Just make sure you have gas in the rear tank. If you do decide to change the sending unit, run that front tank as empty as you can, also, I would change the pump too. In 92, I think the pump or the sending unit can be replaced seperately. The worst thing about changing those in tank fuel pumps is getting the gas out of the tank. No trip meter? Just write down the mileage from the odometer. Good luck.

1999 jeep wrangler guages went crazy


Put a volt meter on the battery itself and take a reading when it is doing that. If charge rate is over 14v the alternator may be working but the output is not being cut down to "useful voltage" You may have a regulator problem.

Gas meter does not work.


no fluid on ground right?then it must be your float on your fuel pump.drain gas from tank and take both ''straps'' off.remove both fuel lines.be carefull some gas is still in lines.on the top of tank there will be a wire connector.unplug it,remove tank from under car.remove bolts on the fuel pump.you might be able to buy float sepertly.if not you might have to buy the it as one unit.

1993 sentra jerking problems.


I wanted to just give a suggestion...do you go to the same gas station to get gas? My sentra ran horrible because I kept going to this same gas station. My gas would get low and it would start cutting off and trying to cut off. I let my fuel go to almost empty and then went to another gas station to fill up. It hasnt cut of for about 6 months now and I havent returned to that gas station.
