If tank was empty 4 liters will not move gauge
if all you could put in the sending unit in gas tank is probably faulty or wires to it are defective

How many quart oil is needed for LS'1998 LS 400 ?


I don't know the correct amount, but if it is empty, put 3 quarts or liters in, then use the dipstick level as a guide. Put in 1/2 of another quart and check the level on the stick. Keep adding and checking the level until it is full. Probably somewhere between 3 1/2 liters and 4 or 4 1/2 liters. When shows full on the stick, that's how many. If you overfill it, just drain some out through the drain plug.

My 95 year old mother's car, a 2000 Taurus has a gas guage that is stuck on empty. I was told it was because the car has just been driven around town for years and that there is a gasoline additive...


either the guage is faulty or you have a bad sending unit in tank. I know Chevron Techron is supposed to clear out gunk that can build up and cause the fuel gauge to stick, so the cheapest option would be to get yourself two bottles and put one in each time you gas up for the next two fill-ups to see if that does the trick.

Can be had at any auto parts store or Wal-Mart for about $4 a bottle.

Worth a shot before you go tearing apart the fuel tank.

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

The indicator of fuel shows empty doesn t move but gasoline tank is full


suspect the following

1. the fuse for the fuel guage.
2. the float switch in the fuel tank is defective or sunk to the bottom of the tank and cant move.
3. cable has come off at some point.

I hope this was helpful.

When its just prior to red area for near empty gas it acts like its dying


Gas guages are not reliable, if it acts like it is dying in the area you stated, you are probably out of gas. Don't let it get to that point. Always try to make sure you have at least 1/4 tank according to the guage.

I don't know about the guages, but if the water level was low in the battery Take It Back. Either buy one somewhere else or make sure they test it before you leave.

Check gauges light


Possible bad guage, bad wiring, or bad sending unit. Check each one independently of each other, start with wiring first, then sending unit.
