How to adjust gas gauge to read right not reading way over filled like it does now. When 1997 chev 350 vortec truck gauge is at 1 st red mark close to empty, better not past gas station ! ! !


the fuel level sender is inside the fuel tank, part of the fuel pump assembly. did you or was the tank replaced before??they may have bent the float arm on reassembly . you can buy the sender from your parts supply store .you will have to drop the tank to do this it clips onto the side of the pump assembly. run it almost dry first as the tank is big n very heavy even 1/4 full. you can try to bend the old arm

but its very hard on the "sender" as for level indicator full to empty, think of the shape of the tank narrow at top to widest point in the middle (full to half) wide middle to narrow bottom( half to empty)

its just an overall volume thing

WHEN FUEL GUAGE REACHES HALF WAY THE NEEDLE WILL DROP TO EMPTY. TRY TO PUT GAS IN AND MAYBE GET 5 GAL IN AND THE NOZZLE CLICKS OFF. IT WILL SHOW 3/4 TANK THEN. I KNOW IT SHOULD TAKE MORE WITH THE MILES I...


from what you are describing you have two(2) different problems
1- the wacky gauge- its acting like a grounding issue- wires are crushed/smashed on tank connector
2- not filling - venting issue- vent line to top of tank pinched
3 solution- run tank down to 1/4 or less and DROP tank down to inspect wires and hoses- sounds like at some point in time the tank took a hit and wedged itself upwards against the underside,pinched the vent line so there is too much pressure in tank and also crushing the wires/plug causing the erratic readings(worse with less weight as the tank moves more)
if unsure of how to do this- you can get a manual such as a HAYES book at auto parts story- good luck

On my 98 ford escort i only could put half tank of gas on it . cant fill it does not have no leak what can i do?


Hi, It sounds to me as though your gas tank is:

1 Dented on the bottom, so the capacity is reduced. Replace Gas Tank, or visit the filling station twice as much.

2 Has a defective float on the "Float Switch" inside the tank itsel

I did the job once on my own car. I found a Brass Float on Ebay and purched it for a few dollar.
Note: Although this job can be done Do It Yourself style, I don't recommend it. It requires skill and stringent safety procedures. If you do it FIRST: Make sure the Gas Tank is Empty.

Hope this helps,
Happy New Year,
Mark

The amber engine light on my Honda Civic Si 2004 (93,000 kms) comes on when my gas tank is at the half tank mark, then two lines below half tank it goes off, and then just above the empty line it comes...


The gas tank has a sensor to monitor fuel evaporation. If it determines that fuel is evaporating from the tank, the check engine light will come on. It usually is caused by the gas cap losing it's seal. Get a new gas cap,make sure it is made for your car. That should eliminate the light.

Smell of gas when filled over half


Likely to be the gas tank vent hose that allows air to escape from the tank when filling. Probably located somewhere along the trail from the filler tube to the tank and likely to be difficult to reach. The connections get loose and the hose falls off sending fumes into the passenger compartment.

Your fuel level sending unit is not working properly. The fuel pump and sending unit is one thing in the tank. It isn't too bad of a job to replace, it takes about 2 hours. Buy a manual for you car and it'll have step by step instructions on how to do it.
