Question about 2005 Jeep Wrangler

1 Answer

Hello. I own a 2005 Jeep Wrangler - 4WD, 4 cylinder manual. On two occasions when I've turned on the vehicle, the gas gauge indicates that the tank is completely and utterly empty - though the previous day it registered as full or half full (when I last operated it). And no, nobody is ciphoning gasoline from my tank: my gas cap locks. Any thoughts?

My fuel gauge isnt working, it sayed over Full untill i hit half a tank then showed on F then 1/2 a tank was actually Empty. what could be wrong?


The fuel sending unit has a rhetrostat its a variable resitor ..As fuel is added the fuel lever mover along the rhetrostat and gives resitor signal to the fuel guage, the fuel gauge interpets this as level indicators to show on the gas tank.

Gas gauge doesn't work


Hello
The no. 1 cause of the gas gage not reading or reading incorrectly is that the sending unit for the gas gage inside the gas tank is defective, this is esp true on older cars and trucks, In order to replace the gas gage sending unit requires the gas tank be removed.

My 93 jeep wrangler 4 cylinder temp gauge doesnt work right. when driving the gauge reads 0 when i step on the gas the gauge moves to the right temp. i have installed a new therm. new water pump new...


depending on how fast, this happens, could be an air lock in cooling syste, or a bad head gasket, or head. does the gauge ever go too high? can you hear gurgling in the rad, and does it ever push out coolant?

1999 jeep wrangler guages went crazy


Put a volt meter on the battery itself and take a reading when it is doing that. If charge rate is over 14v the alternator may be working but the output is not being cut down to "useful voltage" You may have a regulator problem.

95 jeep wrangler: gauge indicates 0 oil pressure


Wire on oil sending unit may have fallen off or sensor itself may have gone bad. Check both. If engine has no tapping noises, likely it's not a pressure problem.

Why can i only fit 13 gallons in my 19 gallon gas tank on my 2002 jeep wrangler sport 4.0


You can usually only get about 18 gallons in a 19 gallon tank and you likely have 4 gallons left in it when the gauge reads empty

1998 jeep wrangler se gas gage


Most gauges are set up this way to give you a bit of "margin" between "e" and stuck on the road.Sometimes this is set a bit too high but adjusting it is not worth the $. Additionally, there is generally about a gallon of fuel remaining in tank that the pump cannot reach. This protects you against most heavy debris (rust etc) and water that acumulates there (even in the most well maintained vehicles) which would otherwise easily enter the fuel system. As long as you are not running out at 1/4 tank or anything, you are OK.
