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.

    Fuel gauge says there is 1/4 tank of fuel left, but it won't start. It does start if I add fuel to tank.

    My fuel level gauge has completely stopped working...at first was sporadic (but always wrong) and now it just points straight down. It has not been fixed.

    When the tank is full, the gage will read empty, and then will start working when the fuel level comes down - but after about half a tank, it becomes erratic.

    fuel gauge no longer goes all the way to "Full" - it stops between 3/4 and full.

    fuel gauge occasionally but rarely reads the correct level, usually pegs all the way empty. we use the trip to keep track, @300mi, fill up. when towing, @220mi.

    engine won't start with less than 1/4 of fuel showing on gauge. Problem solved by adding at least 3 gallons of fuel.

    My gas level was reading empty. Once the tank was dropped I still had at least a quarter of a tank. Replaced the fuel filter and now it wont start.
