View Full Version : Anti slosh module

I filled my SC up last week and the fuel gauge stuck to the extreem right of the full mark...

It stayed there until the tank was about full, then the needle would fluctuate between tank and extreem right of full even when I was driving on flat roads....

I think my anti slosh module is at fault.....

I have a bet with my mechanic as to where this module is located.....

Is it located in the fuel gauge in the instrument cluster, or somewhere else.....

Cluster right side, in a slot - yet another green printed circuit board.

Search for 'anti-slosh (http://www.sccoa.com/forums/search.php?searchid=1477807)', with a hyphen.

'No tach' models on left. 'W/tach' (SC) on right....confirm all contacts are clean and it is properly seated.

Ed, mine would do the same thing. I tried two diff ASM's.....All to no change

It ended up being the little ground wire under the airbox and a bit towards the firewall when viewed from the front left wheel.

I'll mix up a baking soda solution and get it fixed later on this afternoon.....

Eddie, you should know better than to let a ground on an SC get that bad.

So, from what I'm seeing here, its possible i have a similar problem- my gauge, as it approaches empty, will suddenly within about 10 minutes, creep back over to the full side and beyond! But only as it's approaching empty first.:confused:

esw0001, it sounds to me like you need a fuel level sending unit. You could try removing and replacing the slosh module, but but I doubt it would help.

Kool, I had figured sending unit initially, but I saw this discussion and was unaware of the anti-slosh module. Had to ask.

Have you checked the ground wire that I took the picture of....

I noticed it a few weeks ago when I did an oil change and never gave it another thought....:p

Looks like an easy fix....

Just have to find time to do it....

3 of my SCs are down right now with various problems and are in need of immediate repairs....:rolleyes:

Ed, so you lied about mixing up the baking soda then huh..:rolleyes:


IT TAKES 5 MINUTES TO CLEAN, NOW GO OUTSIDE AND DO WORK SON!!

If they get that bad, the entire strap is corroded. Cleaning the end is a tease...replace that puppy and be happy.

I was thinking the same thing.....:rolleyes:

It looks to be pretty badly corroded.....:(

I think I have a few spares, anyway.....:D

I was going to hit you up, but I found some late model wrecks with clean ones so I'm good for now.

It's kinda funny how my car will start doing some oddball thing that you would think rarely happens, then all of the sudden someone else has the same problem at the same time. :rolleyes:

i found where this wire is connected, but only the ring, and bolt is there. :eek: Where does that wire connect to? This explains my issue with the gauge.:(

What is the other end of this wire connected to?

If I'm not mistaken, it connects either to the engine block or motor mount.....

Look for a stud in that area that it would connect to....

The wire is only about 12 to 18 inches long.....

so, it's just the chassis ground. i put on an aftermarket, bare wire, braided ground strap on the other side, when i had the heads off, and it's still doing it. guess my asm is bad.

im having an odd problem with my gauge. a few weeks ago the gauge would bounce around or get stuck in full for a while. then it sat for almost 2 weeks while i did some other repairs on the engine with the battery out and now its stuck on empty with the low fuel light on. and also i dont know if this could be a factor or not but whenever i get a full tank and im sitting still it leaks gas infront of the rear right tire any ideas?
