Q: Q: Gas gauge not working

asked by on

My gas gauge is not working.

Hi there. Your gas gauge is connected to your fuel pump in your gas tank. It works off a float to read gas level which signals a resistor to display your amount of fuel. This resistor is called the fuel sending unit. A mechanic from YourMechanic can be sent to your residence for precise diagnosis, and replacement of your fuel sender unit if necessary.
