SOURCE: Fuel guage reads half way and the truck runs out of gas

The float that helps detect fuel level is most likely broken. You or a mechanic will have to remove the fuel pump from the gas tank and check and possibly replace the float. Merry Christmas.

SOURCE: truck doesnt start

dip your tank with a wire. if quarter tank indeed fuelpump or safety valve not opening in supply under hood. Check connection. Valve is on all modern cars for fire hazard. Check the valve by takening it out and testing it. Could be wire harnes problem also. Or filter blocked.

SOURCE: fuel gauge shows quarter tank then the low fuel

Most likely it's one or BOTH fuel level sender units in the fuel tank (there are two float units, one with the fuel pump). Located under the rear pass seats on the driver's side and another on passenger side (seats need to be moved out of the way to get to them - four 14mm bolts with each seat).

You'll see the 8mm screws holding the units in place.

Wiring Diagram:









8047594.jpg In this diagram, the sender units are wired in series (one or both may be causing your problem). The sender units are simple potentiometers (rheostats) & their combined resistance tell the microcomputer in the instrument cluster what the fuel level is, then It tells the fuel gauge where to put the needle. Inspect your wiring connectors to these sender units first. These sender units can be ordered/purchased at a Hyudai Parts Department. I don't believe there are any after-market units available - they are a dealer item.

The gas gauge for the front tank on my 1992 F150 is stuck past full


You probably have a ground wire not making contact to ground on the front tank sending unit. OR the sending unit itself inside the tank is faulty. Either way, when a gas guage goes to full all the time (empty or full), this indicates that NO ground is available for the sending unit.

its probably the gauge in the tank if they put the pump in and not moved the wiring when fitting it get court on the float so does not move, had this before, but if it been like this for a year i would remove the gauge as its not been moving about to keep the resistance board clean so would need to be cleaned up, oil spray and a cotton bud should clean it up ok with out damaging the board.

Check engine light is on, hooked up computer to brain and it says it was a fuel leak sensor or fuel leak evape sensor. where is this sensor located, it also only shows fuel gauge reading of 3/4 tank full...


check ur gas cap first for proper seal and or not tightened this is the usual problem the evap system is from your fuel gas cap [gas--vent lines /gas tank-evap canister-throttle body] to ur throttle body/injectors if gas cap good need to check the lines and components for a leak disconnected /cracked broken-as well as the sensors and canister

87 f150 dual tanks fuel gauge doesn't work how can I troubleshoot this with a multimeter; what voltages/ohms values are normal


I have a1987 F-150. The gas gauge for the rear tank always indicate that the tank is full when I know it is not. I try to put gas in but the tank won't let any gas in. Is there some type of sensors inside the tank that won't allow the tank to be filled or is this a guage problem?

05 grd caravan fuel gauge showed quarter tank and


The float sending unit is messed up and don't know now much gas is in the tank. The float may be stuck in a higher position showing more gas, in reality the gas level is way below. Try using a rubber mallet and tap on the gas tank near the fuel pump. It may help free up the float.

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
