there is a device in your tank that has bouyancy that sends a signal to your gauge. Chances are that it has lost its bouyancy

I had a similar problem only I was lucky enough that my gas gauge started working after it got lower than a 1/2 tank. It ended up being the float inside the tank. I ended up paying around $90 for the fuel float and it started reading the gas level correctly. But after 2 weeks and some severe cold weather, my engine wouldn't recieve any gas, ended up being the fuel pump. In buying the new fuel pump, along came a new float attached. So if your planning on replacing the float, go ahead and replace the whole pump, it will save you time, money, and hassle after its all over with.

SOURCE: gas gauge reads empty but tank acts like it's full

I also have a 04 with a 1.8L. same problem. I took the fuel regulator off. It is a black box behind the rear tire under car. It only has 2 bolts to take off. After that there is a couple of vent hoses from the tank going to this box. Unplug them and 1 electrical connection. The electrical connection and one vent is connected to a T connection on the box that you can unplug by twisting on the T. Take that T off and look inside where you unplugged the hose on this T. There is a spring and a little plunger inside this tube. The plunger gets stuck. I took a little screw driver and some PB blaster and worked that plunger back and forth a couple dozen times and it unfroze. Put it back together gassed up just fine. I did not look but I was told regulator can be replaced for 200$. But a can of blaster is cheaper.

Hi: It Sounds like you Either Have a bad Connection on Your Gauge or the Sending Unit which is in Yout Gas Tank.Your Fuel Pump and Sending Unit Are Located In Gas Tank.Check and Make Sure your Connections are Good and Clean 1st. But it Really Sounds like your Sending unit has Gone Bad.To Replace Sending Unit You'll Have to Drop The Fuel Tank,Empty As Much Fuel as you Can Either Drive till its empty. Holding your Tank Up is 2- Metal Straps with Threaded Bolts and Nuts, Spray with WD-40 And Let It Set awhile Cause Normaly the Are Dirty. Then Take Eiter A Deep Well Socket if it will reach the Nuts,Or Use A Wrench -Remove BOTH NUTS And also at the Filler Tube You'll Probally have a2-3 Screws you'll need to Take Out. Your Tank Should Come on Down.NOTE: Don't PULL the tank out Until you take your Wire Connects Off Remember Which ones Went where. Then Slide Tank out Away From Vehicle, On The Top Of Tank where you remove the wires where thers a Metal Retaining Ring, You'll need to Spray with wd-40 and Remove that Ring,Buy taking a Screw Driver and small Hammer and Tap it out Going Counter Clockwise. After its Off you will be able to Remove the Complete Fuel Pump Assembly. All you'll Need is to Remove Sending Unit.Since Fuel Pump Was Working Right.See if your Auto parts Store has only the Sending unit.if not try Dealership, Hopefully You Won't Have to Replace the Complete Unit. Hopefully this will help you. Please Let Me Know By Voting for me on the Quality of Solutions i've Given you,And Leave a Testamony if You Will. Thanks From The WYOCWBOY

Why doesn't the fuel guage on my Suzuki XL7 go all the way to full?

CAR switches itself off when fuel is on querter tank


check the calibration of the sender unit as may actually be on empty. Find out the exact capacity of the tank and add a known amount of fuel and see where the gauge reads. For example if the tank is 60 ltrs or 20 gallons add 5 gallons and see where the gauge reads. 5 gallons in 20 gallons should read 1/4 or in your case after the engine stops should read 1/4 full. If it reads 1/2 then the sender is out.

2009 chevy aveo ran out of gas now it wont crank


No crank to a mechanic means the starter motor doesn't spin the engine over, is this what you mean? Or do you mean the engine cranks over but will not fire up and run? If it is the latter have you added at least 3 gallons of gas to the tank to make sure the electric fuel pump inside the tank can properly prime? If not do that, also you can spray starting fluid into the engine engine air intake pipe after adding the 3 gallons and see if that gets it going. If it still will not start you have burned up the fuel pump and you will need to drop the fuel tank and replace the pump, remember the pump is cooled and lubricated by the gasoline it runs in, so when you run low on fuel or out you can very quickly severely damage the small electric fuel pump. Never let the gas gauge level go below 1/8 tank to prevent premature fuel pump failure.

Fuel comes back out fill tube when fueling 04titan king cab


With the information you've provided, one cam only imagine that you are obviously over filling the tank.

So this leads me to suspect that maybe (just maybe) your gas gauge is saying you are on empty, or 1/4 tank or a 1/2 tank whatever, etc. And you are wanting to make sure it is full.

I presume it always says this and that perhaps you need to have the sending unit replaced inside your fuel tank.

Otherwise, if all things are in working order and you meant to say that the Pump Nozle that the service station uses (where you fuel up) is not shutting off when your tank is full.

One of two things are happening,

In the case of a pump handle that has an auto lever, either they have a faulty pump nozle, in which case you need to talk with them about this.

OR

It is a manual Nozle, in which case you are holding the lever personally and are over filling your tank...

It would be advisable to look up the total fuel capacity of your tank and make a note of approximately how many gallon are in it before fueling up.

This way, if you know there are say around 5 gallons and you have an 15 gallon tank.
Adding even 10 gallons you would be running the risk of over flowing since you are only estimating say 5 gallons at the beginning, maybe it is 5 1/2 or even closer to 6. Therefore only about 9 gallons could be added without over flowing...

Hopefully you'll have found something useful in this.

Good Luck and happy motoring

Respectfully

I have a 1995 dodge dakota v6 sport truck that starts skipping when it gets to a half or a quarter tank of gas?


Hi There. Let's see if we can help. If truck runs normally after filling the tank, next time it acts up and you add fuel, record how much fuel you added. You then need to determine how many gallons your tank holds. A quick phone call to your local Dodge dealers parts dept with the VIN number will usually get you that info. Next, refering back to your notes, if you have a 20 gallon tank, it acted up at 1/4 full, then you should have added approx 15 gallons! This simple test verifies that the fuel gauge is reporting fuel level correctly. If it is, then there is most probably an issue with the fuel pick-up tube or fuel pump strainer in the tank not extending to the bottom of the tank. Inspect the exterior bottom of the tank. Are there indications of damage to outside bottom of tank? Is it pushed up or deformed? Fuel tanks, especially on pickups, are prone to damage from running over something. If no visible damage is apparent, have you had the fuel pump replaced or did the problem arise after the fuel pump assembly was replaced?. Summary: If fuel gauge reads right and no visible damage to tank is apparent, then the tank needs to come down for removal and inspection of the fuel pump module. Good Luck!

2004 mazda 6 with 3.0l V6..WHen the gas guage falls below a quarter tank the car shutters really bad getting on and off the interstate. Almost as if no gas is getting pushed to the engine. Dealer ship said...


Find out how many gallons your fuel tank holds. Once it falls below a 1/4 tank and starts to shutter. Proceed to the nearest gas station and fill up. If you fill it up with 12 gallons and your tank holds 12 gallons then your fuel gauge is off. So it should be reading empty instead a 1/4 tank.
