Typically, you'll find it on the dash. Look for a toggle switch on the climate control panel.

Ran out of gas


Probably 2 year old gas in other tank. switch back to the good tank and run injector cleaner for at least 2 tanks of gas.

Dash gas gauge stops showing proper gas level once it hits half a tank. Then gauge will fluctuate between empty (light will come on), full and anywhere in between but seems fine from full tank to half


If the trouble with the gauge started after you worked on it then you likely damaged or created a restriction to the movement of the sending unit. You will have to remove the tank and double-check your work.

Gas Tank starts to overflow on empty? I tried all different nozzle positions. But the gasoline still backs up?


The rubber hose that runs from the gas cap down to the tank has a smaller hose inside it. The gas goes down inside the smaller hose and the air comes up around the small hose and vents at the gas cap. It sounds like one or both hoses have become crimped somewhere. I wonder if maybe you have hit something like a parking lot curb or had a really hard thump near the gas cap. Crawl under your car and look for the gas tank filler hose. I think you will find the hose bent or collapsed between the cap and the tank. Replacing the filler hose is not difficult but can be frustrating. You may have to lower the tank to get enough clearance to remove the old hose and install the new one. The other suggestion is to see if your gas gauge is working properly. Is it possible that the tank is full and the gauge shows empty? Let me know what you find out.

Need to empty fuel tank of old gas


Not an easy task. You need to remove and disconnect the tank. Depending on how old the gas (more than 1-2 years) is it may be cheaper to replace the tank than trying to clean out the old gas residue which will repeatedly plug your lines and filters. After you remove the tank dump the gas into approved containers then dispose or properly. Check with your city or county officials they should be able to tell you where to dispose of toxic waste.

Says gas is empty but when at the pump its stops filling.some gas exits back from the tank, I figure its my pin any way to find out if im full or not?


What Pin? Your sending unit is most likely worn out,on a 19 year old vehicle. Pull gas tank and replace complete assy,fuel pump and all,while your there.

1987 fuel level guage issue 87 F150 Lariat XLT 5.0 2wd. Have a very similar situation. Front tank position shows empty even when I know there is gas. Rear tank position shows full after refilling but...


the gas is regulated from the switching valve you control off the dash. Check the valve to hear it switch
have a friend help you do this. it will be located under the truck between the two tanks. You may have a faultly valve or switch rattling inside changing the tanks setting also while driving which will be hard to tell

1994 Dodge Dakota Gas Guage not working all the time


Sounds like the sending unit is bad in the tank.

Fuel Gauge not working


The switch that you use to change tanks is probably faulty - the switch supplies power for the sending unit in the tank, and to the transfer switch for the gas lines - use a meter to check it
