Question about 2004 Mercury Sable

1 Answer

Hi, I've noticed that when I fill up my tank, recently, the gauge doesn't quite reach the 'full' line anymore, even immediately after filling it. I was just wondering why that is and if there is anything I can do to correct the problem.

Replace the sending unit in the tank. Be prepared to replace the whole module though pump and sending unit which is usually one whole unit.

What part do I need? Fuel level sensor? Or One way check valve?


Check for a bad ground connection at the fuel tank. This is the most common problem associated with fuel gauges. If all the wires are in good shape at the tank, sometimes it is a good idea to run a ground wire from tank ground to frame. Other than that the fuel gauge is may need replacement.

Every few cents the gas pump clicks, no fuel gauge


Could be the fuel tank breather is blocked.
Lots of fuel tanks are wide and slim these days and formed to fit the body profile so they have one or more humps that are higher than the filler pipe entry. It would be quite impossible to fill such a fuel tank if the top of the hump(s) weren't vented.

Because the fuel tank these days must be a closed container except when filling, such vent pipes would be connected to a branch of the filler pipe above the maximum fuel level to ensure the tank can be filled and to minimise blowback during filling.

Fuel gauge doesn't move despite milage driven and digital readout for miles left to fill fluctuates up and down. Dealers' computer says all normal with car but I've driven over 175 miles on...


This is the fuel level sender, I can't umderstand why an Audi specialist would even think why its computer related... I worked for Audi/ VW for three years and that doesn't make sense. You can find the fuel level sender under a panel that is located under the rear seat bench.

Fule gauge dose not work right


Does it stick at about half full? I would fill up, the gauge would show full then after 60-70 mile when gauge should show less than half to a 1/4 tank the gauge still showed 1/2 tank so I'd go ahead and fill it up. Finally, I watched my mileage and when my yellow low on gas light came on I filled it half full. After a couple of weeks I filled it up and the gauge has worked every since.

I have a 2005 Passat 2.0v saloon, just recently my car stated stalling on cold startup, it revs on then cuts out. This happen serval times, I leave it for a few minutes then it starts up fine and work...


I have seen allot of this in the recent cold weather, even with my Wife's car...

Most often it is caused by ice forming in the fuel line.

Try adding a can of DryGas (one other brand name is "Heet") to your tank. The results are not immediate, but eventually the ice will be gone.

If you can get your car into a garage (especially a heated one) it helps allot.

Most often, a fuel line ices up because a gas tank is not filled until nearly empty- try and keep your tank full in the winter!

When the fuel gauge reaches half or less, the check engine light comes on and stays on until tank is re-filled. Also when filling the tank, the station gas pump shuts off about 5 gallons before tank is...


Hi! You definitely have a problem on the fuel float thats why the check engine light is coming out. Please replace the fuel float and you'll be good. HOpe this helps and have a good one!

Fuel gauge faulty / gives weird levels of fuel


The fuel level sensor is bad. The tank will have to be taken down to replace the level sensor. There is little fingers on the resistor that wear down and loose contact causing the gage to read incorrectly.

Cars gas tank


the breather tube for the tank might be clogged not letting the air out. so when you fill the tank the fill cant get in fast enough b/c the air is not excaping. check the breather tube for kinks or bends. or even blockage of somekind

My gas tank is significantly leaking only when almost full.


it could be that it has or is getting air in the tank in the form of vapors i know that it may seem unlikely but it does happen so next time that you go to fill up try opening up the tank cap while you go pay let ventilate and when you put the nozzle in do not shove it all the way in just enough for the vapor guard to cover the mouth and use the control of flow method.

Gas gauge seldom reaches full


your fuel tank has a float on the inside with the fuel pump. The float tells your guage where to read. You could check your releif hose on your tank to see if it is clogged . if it doesn,t get air out as fuel goes in it will cause the gas pump to kick off as it thinks your tank is full. when filling up just pull the pump nossel out some and see it that helps
