2001 f-250 7.3 diesel has intermittent running rough with surging. happens at all speeds. I changed the cps, had the tank dropped and cleaned/fuel line new fuel filter. The oil is full


Have the codes read. Without the codes it's just a guessing game. That code will point you in the right direction or even tell you exactly what's going on

I got a 2001 Chevy Venture and fuel gauge always stays on full


The problem is in the fuel sender unit in the tank. It sounds like the float part of the sender unit is binding when it's at the top (when tank is full) and hangs up there till it falls back down when tank is near empty. It will likely have to come out to be checked, fixed, or replaced. Good luck.

I just filled up my tank and now the light is on and the tank shows empty?


{: ) Your fuel level sensor could be intermittently reading high resistance and may need replacement. An intermittent reading can happen at any level (say 1/4, 1/2, 3/4) and will suddenly give you an empty reading and fuel light, sometimes an SES light may follow. At any rate, this kind of symptoms still recommends replacement of the fuel level sensor.
You can observe it by yourself. Does it read normal on lets say half full but will read empty when you can calculate that you still have 1/4 remaining on your tank. In your case you've just filled it full, and it's no different once the fuel level sensor start getting erratic readings.
Although it may take time, you can wait until the fuel level stabilizes to a certain lower level where you think your gauge was reading normally before. You can also do some stop and go, forward and reverse, to slosh the level arm to a a more readable position. Check if you can get clearer results out of this trick.
A scan tool is a better tool to determine quickly the condition of the sensor and may tell also if there are other codes that is related to your problem.

My 1999 GMC Sierra 1500 has an intermittent gearshift indicator light on or black problem. We have checked and cleaned the ground points. Also, the gas gauge is inconsistent...even when the tanked is...


It would be nice to get a little more detail on the intermittent light - you say "intermittent gearshift indicator light on or black problem" - Would it be ok if you elaborate a little more? Thanks.

As for your fuel gauge - you will be needing a new sender unit. Someone liked to keep the tank full all the time, so the wiper that moves across carbon strips wore them out just on that part. Thats why when your fuel quantity goes down, the wiper moves down to a good part of the sender board.

Ford is real proud of that sender unit - $140.

You can buy one on eBay for about $80 shipped to your door --

I have a 2004 pontiac montana. for about two years the fuel guage would fold over and read 125 degrees when the tank is full. it woulld stay there until tank was empty and the needle would drop to empty,...


It could be a bad fuel gauge in the dash unit, but....
Usually it's "The bad".
The fuel level sending wipe arm and windings on the fuel sender wear and send erratic readings.The only cure is a replacement fuel gauge sender.
The check engine light should not be related to the erratic fuel readings.
"The good".
If you have over 200,000kms or 120,000 miles on your van you need a new fuel pump anyway,so have a complete assembly put in which will have a new fuel sender on it.
