The sending unit for the fuel gauge is pretty fragile and possibly got damaged during the fuel pump replacement or the wires not connected properly or just coincidence.

Why is gas gauge not working correctly since fuelpump was replaced.


Is this a flex fuel vehicle. If so, call the dealership and ask the parts dept. if there is a gauge module (perhaps behind the instrument cluster). This may be the culprit and needs to be replaced.

1997 blazer fuel gauge doesnt work i put a new fuel pump in and it still didnt work.... its pegged at full


Unplug the fuel pump, turn on the ignition and see if it goes to empty. Is this a 4 or 2 door blazer? If it is a 4 door this will be easy.

If my 1997 Plymouth Neon needed a fuel filter or a fuel pump what kind of problems would my car have? The gas gauage only works half the time and when it doesnt work my car doesnt run, when put into gear...


Your symptoms sound like a fuel pump, not the filter. The gas gauge is controlled by a sending unit that is mounted on the pump in the tank. If the gauge is sometimes not working, chances are, neither is the pump, which would cause the car not to start. The pump not only provides fuel, but also pressurizes the fuel system for the injectors and throttle body. The fuel filter would cause poor mileage and hesitation when accelerating. A completely blocked filter would cause the car not to run, but your gas gauge would still work since it's reading the level of fuel in the tank, not whether it's coming through the line to the engine.

Car wont start,put 8 gallons of gas,new fuel filter and gas gauge still shows empty.checked fuses,fine.is thier a fuel reset button.


No, but if you put fuel and the gauge shows empty, then you have a loose connector near the gas tank. If car doesnt start, then it is for sure that the connector of the fuel pump is loose. Reconnect the fuel pump and you are gonna be fine.

IT SOUNDS LIKE YOU NEED TO REPLACE THE FUEL SENDING UNIT. IT SHOULD BE LOCATED ON THE FUEL PUMP.
