    2005 taqhoe gas gauge just not working right.

  • flip3434 Mar 03, 2009

    My fuel gage works, but everytime I fill up my car and then I start to drive, the fuel gage goes crazy and goes way past the full mark and get's stuck and then when I shut the car off it goes down a little until eventually it goes back to normal. I brought it somewhere to have it looked at and they said it could be the instrument panel cluster or the fuel sensor in tank. The cluster would have to be bought from the manufactor and the fuel sensor would cost $486 just for the part - not including labor. Please let me know if you have an answer as I don't have the money to get it fixed at $80/hr. for labor + the $486 for the part.

SOURCE: calibrate a fuel gage (gas)

Assuming you don't have some kind of Space Shuttle technology to work with, the best thing to start with is an empty gas tank. When you install the sending unit the little float will be hanging down and the gauge should read empty. You can do some minor adjustments to the float while you are monkeying around with it so that, for example, "Empty" is not empty. This way even if the gauge is reading empty you will know that you have a few gallons left in there as a back up reserve so even if you are reading in the reserve range that you know you will still have a couple gallons left in the tank when you hit the big "E".

Look for which one of your gauges that are not working. You may need to take it to the dealer to find out exactly why. Could be a bad sensor somewhere.

SOURCE: My gage/fuel gage isn't working properly. Fuel

The sending unit holds the fuel gauge sending unit, and maybe should be replaced by dropping the tank.

My 2000 Chevy s15 Rpm and Gas Gauge is not working


I didn't see an s15 in that model year, in my database?
If the speedometer works but the tach doesn't, I think something is wrong with instrument cluster?
GM has had a problem with fuel gage sending units. The sending units are not hard wired to instrument cluster, they send signal to pcm, the pcm sends serial data to instrument cluster, telling the cluster the gage settings.
It may be possible to use different size resistors in place of the fuel level sending unit, to see if fuel gage reacts properly to different resistors, if the gage reacts properly, then I think the problem is the fuel gage sending unit.

Chevy aveo 2007 5door, shift handle feels lose, car goes


if its a 5 speed, yes the shifting is loser than normal cars. the reverse is all jacked up.. if its anything like my 06 aveo when you shift into reverse you have to lift the little circle thing on your shifter up ad act like your putting it into first.. If it grinds try doing it slower. I HATE this transmission. Chevy did a horrible job on picking it. I always grind reverse no matter what

My fuel gage does not work properly it fluxuate to rapedly


The first thing that goes wrong in this kind of situation is fuel level sensor which is intergrated with the fuel pump, I recommend opening the fuel pump and checking the fuel level sensor might work properly after a simple cleanup or a new one. Hope it helps,
