Fuel gauge problem

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

Car is 180sx type x 96 model sr20det

One morning went to car gauge was showing full tank when only half tank of petrol inside.

 

Drove it around the level came back down to normal.

 

A few days later after filling up the gauge keeps going up and down. Every morning the gauge would show more than what's in the tank till I start driving then gauge would come back down.

 

I've searched around and others have said that the resistor in the sending unit can be the problem. So I pulled out the fuel pump assembly and the float seems fine have not tested resistance though which I will do soon.

 

Would this be a gauge issue or more likely the fuel gauge sending unit ?

 

Cheers

sender unit pull the sender unit back out and put the float throught its motions and get someone to monitor the fuel gauge.
