Possible bad guage, bad wiring, or bad sending unit. Check each one independently of each other, start with wiring first, then sending unit.

The gas guage and temperature guage in my 02 cavalier are not working properly. half of the time the temp guage stays below 40 and will not go up and when i fill up the car and start it the gas guage will...


Hi, take the connector off the temp sensor, turn the key on, and have someone watch the gauge while you insert a paperclip to short the terminals together inside the connector. If the gauge goes from one extreme to the other when the terminals are connected, the cluster is probably OK. It may just be that both sensors are bad.

Engine turns over, but will not start


gas line could be crushed or clogged up. but first try the battery might be dead try changing it, the starter could be messed up, or the ignition relay. try the relay before buying a starter. if at last the dont work i would have a code reader put on it and see if anything shows up the reading with cost u but will save some time

2001 cadillac eldorado, gas guage goes to full


to test if its the float in the gas tank, use a rubber hamer and hits 2-3 times than check guage. If the level is still wrong its the guage.

1999 Pontiac Grand Am Fuel Problems


The gas guage has a sending unit in the tank attached to the pump, there is a small circuit board on it that has smal"fingers" that send the signal to the guage.These get worn off and thus sends a false reading to the gas guage in the dash. The gas tank must be removed and a new unit put in to solve the problem. I had to do this repair to mine. As for the gas issue, just try pulling the nozzle back out of the filler neck when putting gas in, sometimes the overflow tube gets plugged up and won't allow the air to escape as the gas goes in the tank, making the gas pump think the car is full, pulling the nozzle will allow the air to escape. Hope this helps.
