    my petrol gauge needle has stopped registaring and the red light is constantly on like there is no fuel in the tank. I know there is around half a tank of petrol, so there is a definate fault. This has only just happened.



    Any ideas? Sender unit? faulty wire/lead?

Could be many things, but fuel pressure regulator, leaking injectors are most likely. DO NOT DRIVE UNTIL FIXED. If the fuel is really getting into the oil pan, oil will be diluted and could damage engine bearings.

I have a BMW 320 CI SPORT, but fuel gauge is not working even when is fully tank. I don't know what is wrong. The amber light is constantly on. The fuel tank is not reading Please help with any suggestions


lift out the rear seat and remove the fuel pump and gauge unit. Cover the tank with a piece of plastic and tape and tape to stop fumes escaping. See if the float is still there. Check the follower on the level resistor. If the resister strip is black, try to gently clean it with a pencil eraser. Swing the arm up and down and see if your gauge moves

Filter is mounted directly above the pump module on top of the fuel tank. You may have to drop it down a little bit to change it. Also check the fuel pressure with a good gauge while it's running poorly and see if it's out of spec.

My temp gauge and fuel gauge stopped working on my 1988 toyota pickup all of a sudden, what do you think?


Check all fuses with a test light. If all good, you will need to diagnose each circuit. Look for the temperature sensor, disconnect connector, ground test light and touch wire. Check to see if the gauge move. If it does, you will need a new sensor. Basically the test is the same for fuel gauge. Disconnect connector at the fuel tank and touch contact and see if gauge move. If it does, the sending more than likely is at fault. Make sure you test each wire as there will be a few. Use proper jack stands anytime you work under a car! Let me know your progress.

Fuel Gauge always shows empty


see if there is any acces to the fuel tank cover under the rear seat, if it is then remove the screws and remove the sending unit sending unit inside the tank most likelly it will be bad, but if you don't feel like doing it, then take it to your mechanic but seems to be the sending unit inside the tank wich is the sensor trigering your gage is not good and need to be tested and replaced
