Answers :

This a problem caused by the fuel level sending unit that is located inside the fuel tank, it is defective. To replace this part you must remove the fuel tank from the car, the sending unit is sold as part of the fuel pump assembly in most cars.
Your fuel gauge in your gas tank is broken. I would take it to your dealership and have them repair it for you. It should not cost that much, just tell them about your problem.

I have a 1994 3.0 Stealth( non-turbo). It started when I needed to replace the fuel pump, because the high pressure tube rusted out. I did that now the fuel gage has gone from showing from 1/4 to 1/2 full to totally full to now empty. I've dropped the tank now 4 times trying to figure out what's wrong. This last time I replaced the whole float mechanism with the one I had from the original pump. After I hooked it back up the gage went from full to empty and doesn't move. Is there a relay between

My 2009 Tiguan's fuel gage will go from 1/2 a tank to the fuel light coming on. When I fill the tank it will only accept about 1/2 its feul capacity and the gage returns to half full. Sometimes the next time I crank it the tank will register full. I've had it back to the dealership several (3) times and they cannot seem to find a problem. Anybody else having this issue? Love the car I'm just tired of taking it to the dealership all the time. Thanks Kim

1998 Mercedes SLK 230 Kompressor Convertible: With fuel tank full, it appears that a orange flashing light on the fuel gage flashes. I believe this is a low fuel warning light. Why does this light come on intermittently. After shutting the car off (reseting), the light goes out but will come back on after driving for various times. The fuel gage needle appears to be accurate especially after filling the tank.

2001 Taurus Flex Fuel vehicle gas gauge stays on full constantly. I monitor the trip mileage so as not to run out. One day I noticed it worked properly, then next day it read full again. I tapped on the dash several times thinking it was maybe stuck, but it did not change. It stays on full even when key is switched off. Checked fuses, none bad. I am hoping for a solution where I do not have to drop the tank. I also suspect car may have been in a minor front end collision, but not sure.
