Hi, I've got problems with the fuel gage in my corolla. It's sitting at 1.4 full all the time. Any suggestions as to what's going on and how to fix please?

Thanks.

Could be the gauge. Maybe the wiring to it has shorted.
Also it could be the tank float itself. If it is stuck you will have to pull it out of the tank to fix it.

So how do I get to the actual float in the tank? Coat Hanger and torch? or do I need to take the tank out completely.... ?

Or just kick the car around a bit and shake it up and down ?

Do a search on this problem. I posted this topic a few months ago when both my fuel and temp gauge went to max and stayed there. Ended up replacing the gauges. So far so good. Highly doubt that your float is "stuck" at full. They are a bulit-proof design. Quick check is to pull your fuse powering the gauges...should drop to empty.
