The fuel gauge on a jaguar x type is regulated by a floating gas gauge that measures resistence; the float drags a contact across a board that has variable resistence. You can retrieve the sending uint from the gas tank by removing the carpet cover and the spare tire assembly from the trunk. Then you carefully tap the retaining ring from the tank and remove the fuel sending uint. You will see the float, the assembly and the resistor board. carefully take the unit apart, and the sliding joint where the float meets the board (which is made of copper) needs to be cleaned, I suggest Brasso, a metal shiner. Rub it well into the copper joints and let it dry to a haze, then buff it to a brilliant shine. Reassemble the sending unit and replace it into the tank. The unit will work perfectly from empty to full for about another 20 years, and the two dollar investment in the Brasso is well worth is; saves you about 60 bucks on a new sender

2008 jaguar s series gas gage quit working


probably not all that difficult to fix it you have patience. The needle going way past full is an indication of a short before the sender unit or in the sender unit. Pull the power wire from the sender unit and see what the gauge does. IT should stay on the empty mark. IT may be just a fuel sender unit .

Fuel guage reads on quarter full when tank is full. Im thinking sender unit but wanted to check first.


best way to test is to jack up the car support the rear with jack stands and wheel chock the tires so it doesnt roll, locate the wires to the fuel tank sender and unplug , gauge should go way past full unplugged revealing the gauge should be ok, ground the same gauge wire and the gauge should read past empty, this will test not only the gauges credibility but also the integrity of the wires and ground in the system.
If the gauge checks out good which 90% of the time they do, you must drain the fuel tank disconnect the fuel filler tube,and all fuel lines and electric connectors, unthread the fuel sender cover and remove the fuel tank sender and fuel pump assembly from the tank, seperate the two carefully in order to replace the fuel sender assembly, be careful not to bend the fuel float arm when assembling back into the tank, it is only a tiny rheostat that is controlled by the upward/downward motion of the float arm and can easily ruin the rheostat windings if the arm is forced too hard during installation.
Happy motoring!!

Gas guage no longer works when below half a tank.


You are probably looking at dropping the fuel tank down and removing the float and sending unit ( all in one unit). Once it's taken apart, you may see that you can fix it or you may have to replace it.

1985 Dodge Ramcharger fuel gauge not working


The problem most likely is not the gauge itself. It could be faulty wiring between the gauge & sending unit, or most likely a bad sending unit in the tank. Visit Ramchargercentral.com, do a thread search on fuel gauge issues, and you'll find a ton of info. If you need anything clarified, post up on the vehicle help board...the members there are happy to help!
