1996 Chrysler Sebring JX 4 Cyl 2.4L

Preventive Maintenance

Why is the gas meter level indicated on the dashboard very inaccurate?

For example, I'll start the car and my gas tank will indicate that it is half full. After driving approximately five miles, it'll drop to the red where it is close to empty. Later when I return to the car and start it up, the meter will be just below the half tank marker. I have no idea if this is a glitch with the dashboard, or if there is a gas leak......although I haven't seen any leaking. Help!!!

Several possibilities; faulty fuel sending unit, faulty fuel gauge relay, faulty fuel guage. Try the many on-line auto parts sources, such as; www.RockAuto.com or www.autopartswarehouse.com for the replacement parts.
