Actually yes you can buy them separatly. If it were me, and I have this same problem. I would pull the instrument cluster off first, and check for a good contact.

Drop the tank and replace the fuel pump module. It houses the fuel pump and the sending unit. You can't buy them separately.

This is a result of either a bad solder job at the factory or just bad solder. You can remove your gage cluster and remove and resolder the joints at the back of the 2 indicators. there are several sites on the internet that have specific instructions.

2002 honda civic doesn't excelerate when i push on the gas. could it be the fuel filter or fuel pump


Check if there is a lag in the needle of the tachometer when you step on the gas when in gear and when in idle. If there is no lag or anything unusual while the engine idles, it may be the transmission. It may be the clutch for manual transmission or the torque converter for the automatic or you may need to add or replace transmission fluids.

Speedo needle doesn't move, petrol gauge moves up and down, low fuel light comes on and off, rev needle and temp work. Rear fog lights light comes on dash when evan side lights switched on


Probably a break inside wiring loom of one/more of the three wires that eventually connect to the speed sensor on top of gearbox. The break I fixed in my 2003 Leon 1.6SX was in the loom under battery tray. My symptoms were no speedo working, and erratic fuel guage (particulary when under 1/2 full). I repaired one broken wire.

This is the fuel level sender, I can't umderstand why an Audi specialist would even think why its computer related... I worked for Audi/ VW for three years and that doesn't make sense. You can find the fuel level sender under a panel that is located under the rear seat bench.

Here is some info about the Passlock light. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/ If this is happening while driving, the passlock failing could cause all the needles to jump around. It might be the connection between the key, ignition, and computer losing and then regaining connection.

There's a float inside the tank that the fuel gauge works off of. If you step on the brakes or accelerate hard it causes the gas inside the tank to slosh around and you can see the fuel gauge move when you do this. If you know the vehicle has gas in it, the best way to check if the gauge is bad is to drive around enough to where you should have burnt a noticeable amount of gas. If the gauge doesn't move, then there's something wrong with it.


Since the gauge moved when you braked hard, I would assume it's working properly because it picked up on the level change inside the tank where the float's at.

Sounds like the fuel sending unit in the gas tank is faulty. Also may want to be sure all wiring is in good condition before replacing fuel sending unit. The fuel tank will have to be removed to perform fix.

Engine stalling due to too much fuel. Fuel in crankcase.


sounds like your float in the carb is stuck or the needle valve is bad. remove the bowl and push the float up to level. this should stop the fuel flow. be aware that only slight pressure should be needed.if it does not ck the needle valve. also mak sure you float is not damaged.
