Fuel gage stuck on full


Either there is a short in the fuel sender wiring or the sender in the tank is bad.The actual gauge is rarely bad.Good luck.


Else
The float affixed to your fuel pump in your gas tank is stuck.

It tells the dash you ALWAYS have a full tank.
You have to drop the tank, PB Blast/WD40 the float, get it to drop down.
Finally
Your unit in the tank is bad. Pull it out and move it up and down while someone looks at the gauge. If doesn't work, buy a new one. They are not that expensive.

Fuel gauge is moving slowly to full


I'd use a couple of resistors representing full and empty. Take connector loose from fuel level sending unit at gas tank, two wires, use resistor between the proper two wires, turn key just to on, you shouldn't have to start it. If gage reacts properly to both resistors, I believe the problem is the sending unit in the gas tank. If it still doesn't function properly, have to check wiring circuits and instrument cluster. The resistor ohms, 16 ohm--and 158 ohms. These are just generic specs.
Some ford instrument clusters can do a self test. The only problem I have is, I don't which years this applies.
With the engine off, depress and hold the odometer reset button. Turn the key to the run position and hold until the gages sweep, within 5--8 seconds. Depress the reset button once to advance to each stage of the self test. Turn the ignition to the off position to exit self test. This test is w/o outside input, so if all gages sweep except the fuel gage, I suspect the instrument cluster has a problem. I'm not sure if your instrument cluster has the self test ability?

Fuel gage stuck at half full


Hi,
Check both the gas float and the fuel gauge. The terminal wire on the fuel float when grounded on the bare metal body of your car it will register on your gauge as "FULL ", if not the fuel gauge is malfunctioning and have to replace. When it register to your gauge as "FULL", the problem would be the gas float inside the fuel tank.
A technician could replace it for you.
Hope that helps you out.
Thanks for asking FixYa!

I changed the fuel pump on my car and now the fuel gage stays stuck on full. Is there anything I can do to fix this problem?


Try disconnecting the battery for a minute. If that doesn't straighten it out, you may have to take it apart again. The float might be hung up on something. It may shake itself straight next time you put gas in, too.

Gas gage stuck


Sounds like your fuel level sending unit is bad. This is a common problem with these and my 190E is doing the same thing. They are very easy to replace. If you decide to do it get beck to me and I will walk you through it.

It could be the fuel level sending unit is stuck or going out. It's in the gas tank.
