Sounds to be a faulty tank sender unit, these senders use a fine coiled wire on which a brush slides along to vary its resistance.
If the coiled wire breaks midway, the only readings will be full or empty.
I think sender unit is mounted to internal fuel pump on this model (top of fuel tank)
Hope this helps, regards

Guages not working,


If all voltages checked ok,then most probably its faulty instrument cluster board on which gauges are connected.Yes if cluster circuit board looks ok,then also it can be faulty.Somewhere there is minute short or burn on board then such prolem arises.
Also check the fuse box.One under hood and other under dash.Inspect each and every fuse and see if all are fine or not.
---------------For more troubleshooting on these cluster gauges i suggest you to refer the list of help links mentioned below.Its step by step instructions will help you to confirm the exact cause of problem in these conditions:---------

I have a 2005 Mercury Sable that suppose to have a 18 gallon gas talk, but I can only get at most, 13 gallons of gas in it and it never will fill up. I have never been able to fill the gas tank up in full,...


With the gas gauge not working right, you have probably never let it get completely empty. And as far as the gas gauge goes, it's probably the fuel level switch. you can not purchase these separate from the sending unit. It would be a $500.00 + I would live with it untill the pump goes out, because this is part of the sending unit also.

sounds like you have a restriction in the fuel inlet pipe,( maybe air locking) also your tank sender unit neads replacing to fix you gauge fault, or it maybe that it has something that is not alowingf it to move freely inside the tank, have a good look inside when low on fuel. through the hole where the sender is fitted.

2005 malibu gas gauge goes up and down on movement. When I fill it, it goes to empty. And engine light comes on. But mostly moves from full to empty.


Sounds like a bad sending unit or a bad gauge. All 2000 an later GM vehicles seem to have problems with their gauge clusters. Hope this helps.
