Just wondering if anyone has had a problem with there fuel gauge not working and if so what was the problem, the empty light is permanently on and the gauge shows empty even with a full tank. If it is the sender unit in the tank is it a DIY or do you recommend it to a pro.
i just changed my fuel pump this weekend. There is a level sensor on the pump (kind of like in a toilet). It very well could have got stuck or just failed. I would start with a removal and reinstallation and see if that helps. The pump im talking about is on the passenger side
I've located the two access points to the tank under the back seat, is there two level sensers in the tank, and if so how do I tell which one is faulty, the one on the right side has the fuel pump by the loooks of the wire loom that goes into it.
i know the one on the right has a level sensor. I would start with taking out that one and taking a good look at it. A new fuel pump will run you about $150. But i would take it out and examine it first. I replaced mine because it was getting loud. Good thing too because when i pulled that sucker it was filthy brown and looked as if it was about to die..
That happens to me all the time.. when my fuel gauge reads empty and I refeul it sometimes takes a few minutes before it reads it and or when I reignition my car than it reads it. ( sometimes it takes 3-5 times turning off and on the car before it reads the gas)
