Fuel gauge

I cant remember if the gas gauge on my 87 goes doen when I turn the key off. I have an sr5 cluster....all the other ones go down.

What does your gas gauge do?

both my 85 and 88 go down, along with the rest of the gauges.

then once ya start it, or turn the key on, it takes a good 15-20 seconds for the gauge to climb back up

weird. Because my gas gauge was always kinda weird and I remember now that it did go down after the key was off. But now I filled up yesterday and it wont go down but does move.....idk what it is.

blue steel, i'd prefer mine to be that way too, so you always know how much fuel you have.

my 85 does something simalar to that in the winter (well, about 25 and colder)

whatever the gauge is it, when i shut the truck off, it'll drop a few centimeters but not go all the way, then when i turn the key on it'll climb back up a few centimeters

how and where on the 86/87 does the gauge get it's power. trying to track down why it doesn't work. all the fuses in the block are good, you can hear the pump turn on.

yeah 85gijunk! IMO if before the 90's gauges are like what you guys say they are.... and knowing that '95.5 to '02ish have the WORST gauges EVER! (almost never accurate, always bouncing around...) I'd say the 2nd gen 4runners and whatever gen pickup that is in between those years must have the best gauges.... but thats my opinion.

but im sorta perplexed that drmix's truck (93 pickup sr5, according to sig) isn't like mine. only thing i can think of is his is a pick up, mine is a 4runner but i dont know why they would be much different between the two. mine stays where the fuel level is ALWAYS. both off and on. love it.

Mine stays where it is at as well, but mine's a pickup with a 4runner's SR5 cluster swap. I cannot remember what my OEM cluster did, but I wanna say it stayed put as well. But I was having issues with the sender wiring to say for sure.

My OEM gauge dropped when the key was off, my SR5 gauge does not.

Yeah if I remember correctly my 93 4runner stayed accurate even when shut off. Kinda weird how the pickup and 4runner would be different from each other even though lots of the parts are the same
