Fule gauge dose not work right


Does it stick at about half full? I would fill up, the gauge would show full then after 60-70 mile when gauge should show less than half to a 1/4 tank the gauge still showed 1/2 tank so I'd go ahead and fill it up. Finally, I watched my mileage and when my yellow low on gas light came on I filled it half full. After a couple of weeks I filled it up and the gauge has worked every since.

When I fill up my gas tank the gauge registers at 5/8th of a tank. Occassionallt the gauge will register a full tank but while I'm driving it will go back to 5/8th.


Your fuel sending unit is probably a little sticky...
I wouldnt worry about it... It's the bottom half of the tank of gas that matters , right?

Cannot freely pump gas into my 2000 ford taurus


The gas guage is a seprate problem, the gas fill hose may have a sharp ben in the hose or kink, the gas pump hase a shut off valve that shuts off the pump if gas does not flow freely ie:blockage or full tank, I would visualy inspect the filler hose from the gas cap to the tank for again sharp bends or kinks, if the filler hose is in anyway restricked the pump may asume the tank is full.
the gas guage: is usualy a simple flot on a rod in the tank (like a toilet tank has) instead of opening or closing a valve it operates a "potentiometer" veriable position sensor (kind of like a dimmer switch).
if the float gets stuck the guage will stay in that position, the guage gets the signal via the wire harnes, so check the electric circit.
A trick I used on one of my jeeps (I removed the guages ) I filled the tank, reset the trip odometer to zero, put a jeerycan and a couple gallons of gas in the jeep, then drove normaly a week or so till I ran out of gas. wrote down the mileage on the trip odometer. gerrycan gas got me to the gas station.
divided the mileage by half. I fill up the tank all the way the reset the trip odometer to zero, when I reach the half mileage of the tank I fill up again and repeat

You Definatelly got some Bad Fuel. Get a can of B-12 Chemtool from any Auto Parts Store or Wal-Mart and Pour it in the Gas Tank then Let it Run for a While. Should help Dramatically! Let me know!

Lite poped on for gas filled it and now wont stay going


You got a tank of bad gas. You need to drain the tank and refill with good gas. If that doesn't resolve issue you need to check fuel pressure to see if the fuel pump gave up on you.

Gas gage does not work


I had the exact same problem. It ended up being the float inside the tank. The float was around $90 but 2-3 weeks later I ended up replacing the whole fuel unit which came with a new float attached. I should have just replaced the whole unit when I replaced the float. If you still have the original fuel unit, you might want to consider just replacing the whole unit. I hope you find this helpfull.
