Fuel gauge & pump issues in Matiz
I have a 2000 model Matiz. I am having issues with my Fuel gauge. Even with full tank of petrol, the gauge is always at the empty position. Checked with the service center and they told me that it's the problem with fuel pump.
Can someone tell, where to source the fuel pump?

Why dont you ask the dealers themsleves? After all it is their duty to get the problem sorted out. Right? I don't understand onething. If the fuel pump is having a problem, how is that it is able to pump fuel to your engine from the tank? The problem may be with the fuel level sensor in your tank. The level sensing circuit is broken somewhere. That may be the reason why the level sensor is not able to send a signal to the Fuel gauge thus your fuel gauge is showing empty position always. This is my guess. Please take your car to some other workshop/dealer to find out the real cause.

Fuel Pump and Float sensor
In Matiz, the electric fuel pump and Fuel gauge(Float level sensor) comes as a single unit. As seen in many Matiz cars, It's a usual problem. You may have to replace the entire unit, anyone may be out of order. To replace also there is non availability of a Guenie Product from the manufacturer. Else manage with the same for sometime, there may be availability of spares of matiz as Spark is in Market.

If your car is running, be ASSURED that the fuel pump is OK.
If the fuel gauge is not showing level, the problem is with the level sensor. That MIGHT involve having to open up the fuel tank (not familiar with Matiz), or it could be just a circuit problem.
And please change your service centre - they seem devoid of brains altogether.

I have experienced a similar problem in my previous Matiz SG. The fuel guage niddle used to jump to the full level (the extreme) even though the tank might have half.
I tried solving it, i got the same answer as I will have to replace the fuel pump as there is no separate electrical unit.
