Answers :

There r ways around that if u follow the brake line u could cut the broken one right before the gas tank then flare it n connect a new line n run it on the side of the gas tank with wire ties . Also u can put a compression fitting on the line u cut after the gas tank that's Wat I did two years ago n they r still working fine .if u can get the flare kit do it that way cuz I belive they can fail u for the compression fitting

Gas tank floats all over the place on my 2005 halibut. I was told there may be access from under the rear seat in order to replace the part in the tank instead of having to drop the tank. Is this true? Also, my right directional bulb keeps blowing.

I have a 99 elantra. When i fill my gas tank, the gas needle never reaches the full mark. It stays on 3/4. This has been going on for a long long time and it is gradually getting worse as far as mileage. I don't remember how much mileage I actually get BC it has been so long since my gauge has worked correctly. The whole motor was rebuilt the beginning of this year and the sending unit was also replaced. When my gauge hits empty, I've driven 176 miles. I filled up last night and it held 8.4 gal

Can I replace just the fuel level sensor/indicator, rather than replace my entire fuel pump, or is it one piece? My truck kills when the gas gauge gets to about 1/4 tank or less, but no other time. We think the piece in the gas tank that senses the fuel level needs replacing. I hate to replace the whole pump if I don't have to because I don't feel the pump is bad, not to mention they cost a fortune!!!


Yes it is possible to replace the fuel level potentiometer or even try to see if this can be repaired.\012You will need to drain the tank and take the unit out to check for corrosion or worn out windings.\012If a meter can be used to chec ... 1998 Oldsmobile Bravada

Ever since we replace the fuel pump on our 97 Chevy Blazer the fuel gauge reads a quarter tank no matter how much gas is in there. Is their a fuse that may need replacing?? All the other gauges are fine, I just really need to know how much gas I have when i am driving...its really hard to determine this by miles per gallon??

Stop at gas station after driving 250 miles in my 2000 s10 extreme and pump shuts off like tank is full after 3 gallons of gas go in...should take 11 or so gallons. Also gas gauge stays on full and will drop off to empty and pop back up to full no matter how much gas is in the tank. Gauge usually stays pegged at full for the most part. The gas gauge has been this way for many months without the gas fill up problem which is my main concern just thought it might help with the solution.

Hi, I hope you can advise me. My 2002 grand caravan has fuel issues . After I fill up with gas and then drive, the fuel gauge doesn't start to move down until I have driven about about-80 miles, then starts to drop. If the gauge shows that I have 1/2 tank of gas, I really don't have that much. I have to look at the odometer to see when I have to really get gas. the digital reading on the panel above the rear view mirror is in sinc with it (it reads that I have 347 miles worth of gas in the tank

I need to replace the fuel pump and have done them before on other cars so i am aware of what needs to be done on that aspect, what i need to know is if the fuel pump is accessable from the trunk or under the back seat or if im going to just have to drop the whole fuel tank. i know its in the fuel tank just some vehicles have access and some you have to take the whole tank out.

My 94 LeSabre has a about 34 pounds of preasure in the fuel line by the engine and as soon as I step on the gas it drops down to 10 pounds. My mechanic thought it might be the diaphram above the fuel pump in the gas tank not working properly and told me to replace it with just a rubber hose. I took the tank out and this has been done alredy. Any other ideas that might be causing my problem of lacking gas line preasure to the motor?
