Fuel gauge FReady wrong


Recommended Posts

HEy all i am new to the forum. I have a tech question My G6 died yesterday. looks like the Fuel gauge is not reading right and the car ran out of gas. Added gas and the car seems to be running fine other then the gauge reads wrong. The mech i took it to says i need a new pump($550) put the car runs???? So I was thinking the Fuel Level Sensor??? I seen a lot of stuff on the web about the sending unit but some say it hasn't fixed their problem!! any ideas.

i'm not sure if you can replace just the sender/level gauge on the G6's or not. good idea to look into though, as it's much chaper than a whole pump assembly. although you have to drop the whole tank still anyway. i'd start by getting under the car and see if you can see and electrcal connectors for the pump/sender. if so, pop them off and see if they're corroded or anything. it's the cheapest place to start.

Unfortunately it all has to come as one unit :(

my gf's did this a while back but this issue was paired with a bad fuel cap. When the fuel cap was replaced and the CEL was cleared then the gas gauge started working correctly. im sure if a tech told you that they are probably right but for kicks you should inspect your gas cap because apparently when that vacuum isn't correct it throws the gauge off
