Hey guys, i own 2007 dodge caliber and have an issue for some time. Fuel gauge shows empty fuel tank even its half full.. also check engine light comes on with gascap message. Prevous owner somehow took somekind of valve from the fuel tank, so I am wondering maybe it is the issue? Also scan tool says that there is a small leak in evaporate system. The thing is that i dont know how that valve could look like, where it is located and also cant find any parts on the internet..

Do you have any engine codes? The gascap message could just be that you need to clean the cap and filler neck. Sometimes, it's that simple. I don't know about the valve.

That gascap message poped when he took that valve off. There is some kind of codes, but I don't remember exactly which ones. But most of them is about a small leakage. I've heard that especially on Dodge and all other american car the whole emission system is very sensitive. The thing is that I'm in United States and car is in Europe.

1. Remove the fuelpump module (mark the sending unit at the 4:00 position, with 12:00 pointing tothe rear of the vehicle).
2. Remove the fuelpump sending unit from the pump module.
3. Install a newsender to the fuel pump module (see below for part number).
4. Install the fuelpump module following procedures listed in the service manual or inDealerConnect. NOTE: Clock the fuel module to the 2:00 position.
5. Install the jumperhose kit.
6. Re-connect thebattery.
7. Start the engineand check for leaks.
8. Re-install the fuelpump cover.

I'm putting this here if anyone encounters the same problem. The fuel gauge was stuck at empty but the empty fuel indicator was off. My mechanic diagnosed the fuel pump but it was okay so he removed the dashboard panel and discovered the fuel gauge dial was stuck and hard to move
