gas neelde help

Hey everyone this is my first post.. I drive a 98 prelude 5sp... The first thing i did to it was the gauge mod but now my gas needle goes automatically to F.. I tried to lowerer it back to where its suppose to be and filled up to see if it works but it didnt move this time.. I tried and tried searching but none of what i found was related to my issue.. Any advice?

What gas gauge mod do you speak of?

Pretty much got flamed for driving like a jackass and was told to slow down. And I'll be damned, slowing down fixed it.

Re: gas neelde help

I think he might be talking about painting the black gauge rings silver? If not maybe a gauge face change. Did you remove the needle itself? Did it start to act up right after you did the mod or sometime after?

the led one it was pretty simple, but i think i might have moved the gas needle by accident, i knew were it was suppose to be but when i installed everything back it slowly goes to F.. i took the plastic cover off then as i was driving i tried to move it down to position then filled up but it stuck there :(

Dratz!! I thought maybe you'd found one that lets your gauge drop to E when you turn off the car.
