Fuel gauge faulty


The fuel sender is part of the fuel pump mounted on top of the fuel tank. There might be an access ti the top of the fuel tank through a removable access panel under the rear seat. Otherwise you need to remove the fuel tank. New unit will cost a lot

2002 Silhoutte, when idling in park, the gas guage will drop to empty and the low fuel light will come on. What is causing this? Any safety concerns?


One of two things but only one safe reliable repair.
1. Loose faulty connector on top on fuel sending module/pump - repaired with a new plug.
2. fuel level sender inside fuel tank is defective - repaired by replacing fuel module.
To kill both birds, replace fuel pump module. It will come with the new connector and new sender.

My gas gauge is always reading full why 1999 cavalier


Hi

The most likely cause is that the fuel sender in the tank is faulty or that the wiring to the sender is bad.

Less common causes are a faulty fuel guage or circuit in the instrument panel.

Test the sender as it is the most likely cause and easiest to eliminate.

First inspect all connections that are readily visible to insure that they are secure & free from dirt or corrosion.

Disconnect the fuel tank sender wire at the tank. The guage should continue to show full (ignition on). Ground the wire from the sending unit at the fuel tank to any good grounding point on the car. The gauge should go to "Empty". If it does this is a strong indicator that the sending unit is at fault.

Hope this helps. Please do rate my answer. Thanks

01 s10 gas gauge goes either full or empty


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
