Model Years Affected: 1994, 1997, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005

Average Mileage: 116,207 mi (80,000 mi - 176,000 mi)

Verified

It is common for the fuel level sensor in the fuel tank read the fuel level incorrectly. The sensor must be replaced to correct the condition. Our technicians recommend having the complete fuel pump module replaced on high mileage vehicles.

    When I turn my gas guage will travel either to the empty position or it will travel the opposite direction to the full position intermitent problem also gives false mileage left on digital readout on dash

    Guage ok at greater than 1/4 tank level. Below 1/4 tank level guage was erratic and occasionally would bounce wildly side to side. Tank level needle ended up stuck under empty pin and stopped acting erratically but no level indication until low fuel light illuminated. Miles to empty and low fuel light continued to work almost flawlessly. Replaced fuel tank punp and sender, now need to unstick the gauge needle to have a working fuel tank level gauge again.

    THE FUEL GAUGE WOULD SWING BACK TO FULL AFTER ABOUT 200 MILES AND THE ONBOARD COMPUTER WOULD SHOW A FULL READING AND THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT ON THE LEFT SIDE OF THE INSTRUMENT PANEL WOULD LIGHT UP. THE SOLUTION IS TO HAVE SOMEONE SHUT OFF THE LIGHT AND KEEP THE TANK FULL. THIS MEANS FILLUPS AT 2OO MILES RATHER THAN AT 350.LARRYM

    i've owned 3 park aves past 10 yrs, a 1999, and 2 2002's. all 3 experienced the gas gauge 'wrong side' issue and both '02's had fuel pressure/regulator problems requiring both fuel pumps to be replaced. only saving grace was that pump in the 02 model yr is located/accessed through the back corner of the trunk and does not require 'dropping the tank' to replace. mi on 2nd 02 pk ave was 125000

    The fuel gauge will go erratic, going from empty to full, I never can tell how much fuel I have. Every time I fill the tank, I have to reset thr trip odometer so I can track how much fuel I have used/ to go.

    Fuel gauge bounces around from full to empty when tank is 3/4 full or less
