They sometimes work if you lightly sand the contacts with fine emery cloth and spray them with electrical contact cleaner. Short of that a new unit is in order. Check out for more info.

I changed mine out to a used one and then replaced it with a new one in 45 days because the used one did the same thing

Just replaced fuel pump/sending unit in a 2004 Bravada for a no start the gas gage doesn't work? Dropped the tank again and put OLD sending unit in....key turned on tank reads full (full...

Your replacement fuel pump assembly float got stuck somehow rendering it useless. also make sure the electrical harness was connected properly on the replacement. I take it for granted that the replacement was new? Perform a bend test on your replacement fuel pump assembly with an ohm meter. Move the float and see if the ohm meter resistance changes.

Gas meter isn't marking

it is very possible that when the pump/fuel level sender assembly was reinstalled, the fuel lever float binded preventing it from floating to indicate proper fuel level, or the fuel level sender plug isn't plugged in at the fuel pump.

2001 Chevy s10 4.3 surges and won't pick up speed. Valves rattle when you mash accelerator to the floor and it smells like its flooding out

You want to start with the knock sensor, located on the side of the block, about 1 1/4 inches in diameter, 1 1/2 inches long. funny looking sensor. It is suposed to pick up knocks/pings in the engine and tells the ECM to advance or ****** the engine. Check the engine for codes, even if the light is not on. Let me know we can go from there

i had to replace the fuel sending unit on a 2001 chevy implala for the same thing, inaccurate fuel gage, gm does sell the fuel sending unit separate from the fuel pump assembly it mounts to the side of the pump assembly, i had to remove the whole fuel pump module, meaning pump assembly as a whole unit, from the tank, you can access it from the trunk. lift up carpet and there should be 6 screws holding down the access cover, the sending unit cost me 98.00, (AC Delco) good luck, i did two of these for the same thing, my other car was a 2000 pon't bonneville and the needle would swing to full when ever i got down to a quarter of a tank

My gas gauge moves periodically and I do not ever know the correct amount of fuel in my car. Do I have to replace the fuel pump? Or do i have to replace the cluster of gauges?

Your question is not clear. Your fuel pump has little to do with the gas gage. The gage is suppose to move up and down as you use gas and fill the tank. Replacing the cluster is very expensive though you may be able to replace that particular element of the cluster. More likely, I would suspect the sender unit in the fuel tank is faulty. This sensor works in a manner similar to the water valve in your toilet tank, but it is electric, of course. In your fuel tank, the float can 'sink' or get stuck. The electrical windings can become faulty. I don't know what the trouble is with your sender, but I can tell you it is expensive to fix as it requires the removal of your fuel tank .. If you do this, it is dirty, hard and dangerous work. If you have your mechanic do it ... it is dirty, hard and dangerous work @ $ some prevailing shop rate.

Here is what I recommend to you ... forget about the fuel gage. Your car probably can travel 300 miles on one tank of gas. Set your trip meter when you fill up the gas and never go more than 200 miles without filling up. I do something similar, though for entirely different reasons. My car gets horrible mileage ... you cannot guess how few miles I get on a gallon of gas. I try to fill around 100 miles so I can afford to get away from the gas station. I watch the trip meter like a hawk!

I hope you found these comments helpful. If you did, the courtesy of a positive evaluation and remark will be appreciated.

Thank you for your interest in

My gas gage does not work. After I fill up with gas...withing 20-30 minutes it goes all the way down to empty. Should this be fixed or would it be too expensive to fix. The car is a 1999 Pontiac Grand Am...

Either your gauge is bad or the fuel level sender is. Most likely it's the sender in the gas tank. To replace it you would have to drain the fuel tank and pull the fuel pump/sender assembly and replace. You cannot just replace the fuel level sender with this car, the entire assembly must be changed out.

You have a bad fuel level sensor.The fuel tank needs to come out and the sensor replaced.You don`t have to replace the pump assembly.You can get the level sensor separate.I`m not sure if the parts stores have it but I know the dealerships do.Hope this helps.Good luck.

HI, this is a malfunctioning sending unit that is located inside he fuel tank. this sending unit, transfers a Resistance signal to the gauge, in return, allowing you to see how much fuel is in the tank. if this mechanism becomes corroded or, damaged, this will cause the symptoms you are experiencing.

This damage is usually caused by fuel deposits left behind overtime. the modern day fuel we use can destroy sending units because of all the detergents and, nitrogen cleaning agents put in the fuel at the refinery. this is goo for cleaning out the rails and fuel injectors but, it usually can hurt the sending unit mech at the same time.

The fuel gauge sending unit is attached to the fuel pump Assembly. you will have to remove this assembly from the tank to replace it. the tank has to be lowered as well.
