I have a 1995 Jetta GLS 2.0 Liter 4 cylinder with 5 speed manual tranny.

A few weeks ago the fuel gauge stopped working. All other gauges work ok.

What things should I be looking at to try to fix this problem?

Is there a typical fix/solution when this happens on the jettas?

thanks

First I would check the fuse .If not call your local dealer and ask if this is a common problem.

I assume since my other gauges are working, that the fuse is ok. But I will double check and make sure there is not a seperate fuse for the fuel gauge by itself.

Could someone narrow it down as to what specifically I might be looking at?

Gauge in tank? How hard to change? Requires dropping tank?

Anything else besides fuse and gauge in tank?

thanks to all for any help.

My '95 jetta does pretty much the same thing. It wont let my car get a full tank of gas. it will only put in about 10-11 gallons. Its filled all the way once or twice. My mechanic pulled out the gauge and decided that wasn't it so i just dont worry about it. I just use my trip odometer.

my speedometer went out a couple years ago and it was the whole guage cluster that had to be replaced, so it could be the whole thing. it was around $300-$400.
