Gas guage problem Trying to figure out whats wrong with the gas guage on my 1992 Ford Ranger. When you start the truck the gas hand goes all the way up past the full mark and then slowly comes back down....


that is not an isolated problem just with fords but all the info that you listed is a great place to start, and as well the sending unit may be bad, so start trying some of the easer things to start.

Fill up gas tank gauge goes to full as I use gas the gauge goes down to 1/4 tank but no lower I have ran out of gas because i thought i Had A 1/4 tank of gas this is on a 2005 silverado


Sounds like the float in the tank is faulty, or the gauge on the dash.
You should be able to unplug the circuit to the sending unit and check both components.

Gas hand reads full all the time


Fuel gauge may be the problem, but may also be a short in wires going to fuel gauge
Battery power goes to gauge in dash then to resistor in tank to ground. If the wire going to tank is shorted to frame it will always read full. Test this by disconnecting the wire going to the tank. If it goes to empty then you know the reason, either resistor in tank is bad or wire shorted.

Check engine light comes on and gas gauge goes from it current position to empty going down the road


It sounds like you have a bad wire or connection. Did you have the fuel pump changed? The mech may have been a little sloppy. I'd bet the problem is near the top of the gas tank where the pump is.

How do you fix a gas hand on a 1988 f150 this is killing me running out of gas every where I go...?


you need to replace the sending unit inside the gas tank, if you have a broken gauge then replace the gauge, most of the time is a sending unit in the tank that goes bad, drop fuel tank to replace. heres a picture of it, hope this helps.d6cd1f2.jpg
