Question about 1998 Chevrolet Malibu
MY FUEL GAGE DOES NOT WORK BUT I STILL HAVE THE DUMMY LIGHT COME ON WHEN LOW ON GAS, WHAT COULD BE THE CAUSE OF THIS?
Posted by Anonymous on
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.

SOURCE: fuel gage doesn't work
I went to a dealer, they replaced the fuel level sensor (p/n 19177712 SEN KIT 3.107 $118.62) with labor $270.00 for a total of $398.86 this appears to have fixed it for now.
khooper, in another forum, told me that "Chevron Techron Fuel System Treatment Plus can remove harmful sulfur deposits from the sending unit and a filmer agent that can prevent the deposition of said sulfur"
I also talked to another mechanic who blames ethanol for these deposits !

sounds like you have a bad fuel gauge sending unit common problem it is located inside the the fuel tank with the fuel pump Auto Zone should be able to pull codes to verify this it should say you have a bad fuel level sensor code
