SOURCE: fuel guage was erratic then went past full

Test the gauge by using a test light ,and grounding the test light clip to a good known ground,then touch the pink wire on the connector harness going to the tank,with the connector unplugged,and key on,the gauge will move slowly to the empty mark,and lower ,then remove the test light and it will go past full,if it does this,it is a good gauge,and the sending unit,was put in wrong,or the part was bad.

SOURCE: Fuel level sensor in tank bad????

Yes it is all one unit, and yes that is what the problem is. don't use aftermarket parts, use OEM, (Delco Remy) they are much better quality.

could be just a ground problem or a sending unit problem but not a pump problem.

check and make sure that the gas tank is grounded. check also the signal wire from the sending unit that it is not loose or cut. if all the wires are ok, then it is the sending unit which is faulty.

tnx 4 using fixya,

1998 dakota will not shift out of 1st gear when the gas tank is less than 1/2 full. What causes this?


The only thing that comes to mind is the fuel tank
sending unit, for the gas gauge

I do not know the strategy on your vehicle

Some newer ones will shut off the fuel pump,
if the PCM thinks your out of fuel

I would start with looking at bulletins at a repair shop,
on their data base ,then the system you have,then scan
the data to see if you can read the sending unit voltages

After that road test & record some parameters you decide
to pick for the road test

Truck dies, acts like it is getting to much fuel, used a quarter tank of gas in 8 miles


Clogged Gas Filter

Worn out & Blocked Exhaust Converter

Bad Ground at Fuel Pump

The different gas gauge readings would indicate a ground
issue with the sending unit in the fuel tank & possibly the
fuel pump shares the same ground or it is worn out.

I would check fuel pressure with a gauge & the fuel may be
there, but not enough volume

A fuel pump can last 4 years or 18 years

Most likely a defective fuel level sending unit, located inside the tank connected to fuel pump assembly. Theres a possibility that you have a ground issue. So check that first as its easier. If the grounds check out then you have a few options. 1. Pull the fuel pump assembly and clean off the fuel level sender(tons of tutorials online for this). This fixed my problem for 10 months until my pump went out. 2. Replace just the fuel level sender. 3. Replace the entire fuel pump assembly (which should include sender and fuel pressure sensor). And a couple notes. If you have around 100K or more miles then DEFINITELY change the entire assembly. It beats having to do all the work again in the near future. No matter what route you go be sure to replace the fuel pump tank gasket.

2008 x5 v8 my gas gage and on board computer wrong readings


Faulty Fuel Pump, and run an injection cleaner into your gas tank (you can buy a bottle at your local parts shop) then get the fuel filters checked or replaced.

Chances are contaminated gas clogged your fuel works.

For a quick fix: Open the gas cap at 1/4 tank to relieve the vacuum. it will make your pump work less.

The most likely problem is the sender unit in the tank is stuck.
Sender units are relatively cheap and easy to change.
Autozone probably carry them on the shelf.
