When you replaced the sending unit in the tank you have to make sure the indicator, that goes up and down, touches the indicator pad. in other words, make sure it tight.

2000 Buick LeSabre power steering dip stick. Where is it?


The power steering fluid level is indicated by marks on a fluid level indicator. The fluid level indicator is located on the fluid reservoir cap. Inspect the fluid level when the engine compartment is cool. Ensure that the fluid level is at the FULL COLD mark. When the engine compartment is hot, ensure that the fluid level is at the HOT mark.

Located on back side of engine below the alternator

Fuel gauge stays on full mark when empty, but the low fuel indicator light comes on. working the fuel sending unit by hand, I raise up the float and the low fuel light goe off


Fuel gauge could be bad .Depending on make , model and year vehicle ! The instrument cluster would need to be pull from the vehicle and sent out to be fixed or buy a new one .

How to adjust gas gauge to read right not reading way over filled like it does now. When 1997 chev 350 vortec truck gauge is at 1 st red mark close to empty, better not past gas station ! ! !


the fuel level sender is inside the fuel tank, part of the fuel pump assembly. did you or was the tank replaced before??they may have bent the float arm on reassembly . you can buy the sender from your parts supply store .you will have to drop the tank to do this it clips onto the side of the pump assembly. run it almost dry first as the tank is big n very heavy even 1/4 full. you can try to bend the old arm

but its very hard on the "sender" as for level indicator full to empty, think of the shape of the tank narrow at top to widest point in the middle (full to half) wide middle to narrow bottom( half to empty)

its just an overall volume thing

I have a 1992 Mercury Grand Marquis Ls with a fuel gauge that does not work (gauge may be reversed)??? help please.


The fuel level indicating system is a magnetic type system, which consists of the sending unit located in the fuel tank, an anti-slosh module located on the back of the instrument cluster, and a fuel gauge located in the instrument cluster. The sending unit changes resistance according to the level of fuel in the fuel tank, which varies the current flow through the gauge.The pointer position varies proportionately to the current flow. In this system, the sending unit resistance is low (22 ohms) when the fuel level is low and high( 145 ohms) when the fuel level is high. The pointer of the magnetic gauge remains in position when the ignition is turned to the Off position. On some models, an anti-slosh module is used to dampen out fluctuating fuel signals from the sender. Some vehicles are equipped with a low fuel warning indicator. The anti-slosh module will also actuate the low fuel indicator when the fuel level in the tank reaches 1/16 to 1/8 full.


Do your other gauges/warning indicators work properly with the ignition on? If not, check for power at the fuse panel/fuses.

If they do then partially remove your cluster with connector still installed and check for voltage at cluster connector and gauge. Check continuity of cluster and gauge for ground.

Sometimes the anti-slosh module (if installed) goes bad in the Grand Marquis but not likely.

Sender troubleshooting:
  1. Perform test with resistors as follows:
    1. Disconnect wiring connector at sender unit, then connect resistor between gauge lead and a suitable ground.
    2. Turn ignition switch to On position.
    3. With 145 ohm resistor, the gauge pointer should contact the Full mark.
    4. With 22 ohm resistor, the gauge pointer should contact the Empty mark.
  1. Perform test with fuel sender of known quality as follows:
    1. Turn ignition to Off position.
    2. Disconnect wiring connector from sender and connect it to test sender.
    3. Move float rod away from fuel filter against Full stop position. Wait approximately 30 seconds, then turn ignition switch to On position. The gauge should read on or above the Full mark.
    4. Move float rod toward fuel filter against Empty stop position. Turn ignition switch to Off position. Wait approximately 30 seconds, then turn ignition switch to On position. The gauge should read on or below the Empty mark. If gauge works properly replace sender, which involves dropping fuel tank.

GMC 1997 Sierra Fuel gauge needle does not read full, it hovers on 1/4 or empty even when it's topped off. Could it be the float?


yes it probanly is
The reading for a good working float is 8 ohms when placed at the full mark

Fuel guage is not working on my 95 GMC Yukon it points past the full mark and it started when my fuel pump was replaced.


BINGO ! ! The fuel indicator mechanism is IN the fuel pump assembly (in the gas tank). Apparently the mechanic that did the work did NOT hook up the wiring harness OR the float is jammed. Go back to who ever did the work and COMPLAIN.

Gas needle does not go to full when you fill up


you must open the fuel tank and pullout the sensor which is mostly a float with a variable resistance and recalibrate it . so i think you shoul see a mechanic
