Having problems with your 1996 Mazda Familia ?
Does it have a fuel warning light??
\015 Bought a car with no manual and there appears to be a problem with the fuel gauge; won't move no matter how much fuel put in?\015
It sounds like the float for the fuel gauge is probably damaged, bent or missing. It's part of the fuel pump assembly. You can try pulling the fuel pump out and inspecting the float, it will be a small square plastic object on the end of a long metal arm. Check the float itself for damage, and make sure the float arm moves freely. The other end of that arm will have an electrical contact that should be in contact with a semi-circular contact on the pump housing, usually on the inside. Make sure it's contacting that, and if those contacts look corroded, take a clean pencil eraser and rub it on the contact, just as if you were erasing a mistake. If all that checks out and the fuel gauge still isn't working, you'll need to replace it. Check to see if you can get just the gauge itself, but you'll probably have to purchase the fuel pump kit.
