Fuel guage sometimes read empty when there is gas in the tank?


Check that there are no holes in the float. If the fuel is getting into the float, it will give a false reading. Another thing is to check the ground on the float sensor. If it's not connected tightly, it will create a false reading too.

My gas needle stopped working. how will i know if gas tank is empty. If van sits in park and running the needle drop to E and the low fuel light comes on, then when you drive it goes back to a full tank....


You can take out the part of the dash where the guages are and change the little sensor/fuse behind the fuel guage, they should have a replacement part at orileys or autozone

Just filled the gas tank in my 2006 f-350 turbo diesel super duty (6.0), started the truck and the guage showed a full tank. Drove down the road about 1/10 of a mile and the guage dropped to dead empty...


A loose connection on the sending unit could cause the problem but also moisture in the tank in cold weather could also be a factor in which i would add fuel line antifreeze to a full tank of fuel..........Hope this helps you out.

2002 Silhoutte, when idling in park, the gas guage will drop to empty and the low fuel light will come on. What is causing this? Any safety concerns?


One of two things but only one safe reliable repair.
1. Loose faulty connector on top on fuel sending module/pump - repaired with a new plug.
2. fuel level sender inside fuel tank is defective - repaired by replacing fuel module.
To kill both birds, replace fuel pump module. It will come with the new connector and new sender.

2003 Dodge Ram 1500 Fuel Gauge drops to empty while driving.


I have the same problem on my 2003 Dodge Ram 2500 5.7 Hemi. Also the gauge is sometimesslow to register after filling. Maybe 5 minutes.My neighbor has the same poblem with his 1999 Durango? I think this is a job for a recall.
