SOURCE: Full tank of gas and getting low fuel indicator on dash

Bad fuel level sensor. Unfortunately it is located inside the gas tank. Fairly common problem on GM's. Due to sulphur in fuel. Corrodes the sensor tabs. Expensive to have repalced and NOT a do-it-yourself project, unless you have dropped a tank before.

this is the sensor problem which is palced in the fuel tank which senses how much fule is present inside it.
the connection to the sensor may be lose so it is not giving proper reading and erratic.

Gm has a real problem with fuel tank sending units. That is what is wrong. You need a fuel tank sending unit. You can only get them aftermarket with the whole fuel pump module, but you can buy them seperate if you buy it from the dealer.

Gas gauge read fill went full up, and move back and forth went and half way

Very Very Very common in Buicks of many years and Models. Aside from pulling down the fuel tank and replacing the sending unit. We just go by the mileage and go from there. Its a major issue with no recall on it.

What may be wrong with fuel gauge not registering properly

Could be the sending unit in the gas tank or the gauge on the dash.
Until you get it fixed, you can use your odometer to remember to fuel up. Just stay under 200 miles per full tank of gas.

Fuel gauge stays on full

You may have a unique problem!!! Normally I would say it is the sending unit- in the fuel tank!!!! But Buick LeSabre had a weird thing happen from time to time. Look closely at your fuel guage and focus on the PIN that acts as a stop for the fuel guage to not go beyond the Full mark. Make sure the pin is on the correct side of the pin!!! Sometimes the needle will somehow jump the pin on "E" or "F", and literally hold the needle in place.

I have a 1998 Buick LeSabre that have trouble that sounds like it is the starter but only happens when the gas is low in the tank

The fuel pump is weak. When you have full tank the extra weight of the gas helps the pump provide enough fuel pressure to run the engine. When gas is low the pump is too worn and weak to provide enough pressure. Replace the fuel pump.

The fuel needle is broke, I bought the 97 Lesabre two days ago on a full tank of many miles can I get out of a full tank

The fuel gauge needle isn't the problem the fuel gauge sending unit inside the gas tank is the cause of this problem, it is not sending a signal to the gauge
As far as how many miles you can go that would be around 300 mixed city and highway most likely.

My gas gauge is broke, does this car have a gas light?

yes this car does have a low fuel light due to d.o.t. regulations but if you have a bad fuel sending unit (located inside fuel tank) it will not recognize a low fuel level therefore not triggering the light to come on. hope this was helpful, if so please rate.

For the past year, my gas gage needle has not moved off of 3/4 full. Just lately the RPM gage has stopped working on my 2004 Buick LeSabre. How do I get them repaired or replaced?

the 2 problems are not related, the gas gauge problem is caused by a defective gas tank fuel level sending unit, here is the part number for that.
ACDELCO Part # SK1030 {replaces 25326326 #25326326, 88963639}
